Crochet Dreamweaver Basket

Hey there and thanks for checking out the blog and the site! I wanted to post this pattern to say thank you for your support and your shared love of handmade items!

I made this pattern to make some 8.5” baskets for a cute little tiered metal shelf I found for our bathroom. It looked a little sad all alone, so hoped some crocheted baskets would do the trick.


I also wanted to make these look a little different than the traditional single crochet pattern. I tried to create a faux knit look and it actually gave the basket a little extra “sophistication” (sips tea with pinky up). The only difference here is working into the back bump of the stitch below. If this is a little confusing, just google “crochet into back bump” and there’s plenty of tutorials {thank you fellow craft wizards!}.

Materials

Paintbox Recycled Cotton XL yarn (1 skein) shown in dark gray

Label (optional)
