Beginner Crochet Pattern for Stacking Crochet Baskets

This pattern is a perfect crochet project for beginners looking to practice working in the round and learning how to complete the invisible seamless join too!

Below you will see how to crochet the small basket pattern, there are 2 other sizes available in the printed pattern which you can purchase from either my Etsy or Ravelry shop.

The yarn I used for this project is, LoveCraft, Paintbox Recycled T-Shirt Yarn. For the amount of yarn you receive in the 800g ball, it’s really well priced ! You can make a number of crochet baskets from just one ball!

However, due to it’s recycled nature, you will find the thickness will vary throughout the ball. This wont impact on the finished size of your project, but it can make it a little more challenging to work with. With it’s eco-friendly credentials, I can over look it!. 

I love this yarn for so many different reasons. Here are the main 2 –

  • Its Eco friendly, created u sing the left over t-shirt fabric. This means that no additional water is used to produce this yarn. 
  • Every ball is unique! From the colours through to the texture, every ball is slightly different. It’s exciting to feel the differences as you work with it 

So, grab your 10mm crochet hook, and lets get making!

After the final stitch is made, pull up a loop and cut the working yarn. 

Pull the working yarn all the way through the last stitch and thread in to the tapestry needle. 

Insert the needle under the 2 loops of the 1st stitch of the round and pull through.
