Learn how to make a functional and stylish crochet hanging basket that’s perfect for organizing your home in 2021! Free Crochet Pattern.
Created by Guest Designer Sierra from Sierra’s Crafty Creations
Starting 2021 off with some organization! If you are looking to crochet some storage but don’t want bulky bins taking up space, a hanging basket is for you! Not only does this provide some storage, it can double as decor! WIN WIN!
I use my hanging baskets a bunch of different ways! I popped a small piece of floral foam from the Dollar Tree in the bottom of one, and stored my handmade crochet hooks. I have also hung one up by my bed side to store the book I am reading each month for my book club!
You can find the Ad-Free Version of the hanging basket patterns in Sierra’s Etsy Shop.

Hanging Basket Pattern
Row 1: HDC in the 3rd loop from your chain. HDC in each st across. (20 HDC)
Row 2: Ch 2, turn. HDC3L in each st across. (20 HDC)
Row 3: Ch 2, turn. HDC in each st across. (20 HDC)
Row 4- 15 : Keep repeating Row 2 & 3. Do not tie off after completing Row 15.
After your last HDC in Row 15, Chain 10. Sl st to the top of your last HDC of that Row. This creates the loop needed to hang your basket. Tie off.
Sewing your Square into a Basket
Flip your square over so the side with the ridges is facing down.
Rotate your square so it is in a diamond shape.
Taking your left side corner, fold it inward toward the middle of your diamond.
Take your bottom corner and fold it upward toward the middle of your diamond.
Last take your right side corner, fold it inward toward the middle of your diamond.
Cut a scrap piece of yarn about 12 inches long, and thread it through your yarn needle.
Starting at the bottom right hand corner (where the red circle is in the photo above) start whip stitching your yarn through both sides. Going upward toward the center. Then downward toward the left corner.
*You can use whatever seaming stitch you prefer*
Once you are finished whip stitching the sides together, you are all done! Weave in any and all loose yarn tails and that is it friends! Your basket is ready to hang up and look gorgeous 🙂
