This lovely basket is available in two sizes. The smaller basket measures, 8.5 inches in diameter, 5.5 inches in height while the larger basket measures, 10 inches in diameter, 10 inches in height. This is a great tutorial which is easy to follow.
3. Rectangle Rope Crochet Basket
This awesome rope crochet basket uses a technique similar to thrumming, where you crochet over another thread to add bulk to a fabric. Instead of another yarn rope was used, which is a lot bulkier but great for adding stiffness and making each row deeper. Visit Make My Day Creative to get the free pattern.
