Stand Up Basket Duo

Stand Up Basket Duo

Two free crochet basket patterns – these bright and happy baskets, with or without the wooden base – will make a great addition to any room in your house where you want to corral some clutter. A tighter than average gauge on this smooth bulky yarn makes sure the sides of the basket stand up and don’t collapse.

Wooden base if desired – 8” round with 48 pre-drilled holes. Both wooden and aluminum basket bases are available in my shop. Free shipping; made in the USA

Optional: NOT SHOWN: If you are worried about the baskets keeping their shape at the top edge you could crochet over some millinery wire for the crab stitch edging

Gauge: 10 sts x 13 rows = 4” in sc with K/10 1/2/6.50mm hook

Pattern notes:

The pattern is written with and without the wooden basket base. I think the base helps it stand up neatly but you can do a crocheted base if you wish.

The basket with the wooden base has sloping sides, the one without has straight sides.
