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 crochet basket is for you! Not only does this provide some storage, but it can also double as decor! WIN WIN!
This medium sized basket is made using a 6 super bulky yarn. You could also make this basket with worsted weight yarn but you will need to make add more stitches to each row. If you followed the same stitch count as the super bulky tutorial but used a smaller hook size and worsted weight yarn, you will have a small basket. That would be perfect for holding little things like paper clips! Small crochet things are always so cute!
If you’re going the worsted-weight route, cotton yarn would help create a more sturdy basket.
The same thing goes for if you want to create a large size basket. Increase the number of starting stitches and your basket will be bigger.
I use my hanging baskets in 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 bedside to store the book I am reading each month for my book club!
Follow the simple instructions below to learn how to crochet your own hanging basket!

Hanging Basket Pattern
Row 1: HDC in the 3rd loop from your chain to create your first ST. 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 : Repeat 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 ST 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 could also use single crochets (SC) or 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 🙂
You could even get fancy and add a faux button to the front!
