WATERFRONT TRINKET BASKET – CROCHET PATTERN

I wanted to compliment the Waterfront Napkin Rings I made a couple of weeks ago and have some little basket for the table! Now, these evolved as I worked with the cotton cord. I made two different sizes that fit my lifestyle at the moment. I have used this MINI size for my jewelry in the kitchen inside a drawer or on the counter. The small size (bigger one) fits my 6 essential oils and makes for such a cute little basket them perfect to keep them looking put together next to my diffuser. There are countless ways to use these cute little baskets and They crochet up so quickly! I really enjoy using cotton cors but I also explain a little more about two other yarns that can be used with this pattern. I hope you enjoy it!

If you make some of these baskets don’t forget to tag me on social media so I can see and share it! Don’t forget to PIN them to use later! <3

Materials

Abbreviations

  • CH – chain
  • SK – skip
  • STS – stitches
  • YO – yarn over
  • MC – magic circle aka magic ring
  • Sl ST – slip stitch
  • SC – single crochet
  • DC – double crochet
  • SC INC – single crochet increase (two single crochet in the same stitch)
  • SC BP – Single crochet in the back post of the previous round.

Notes

SC BP is single crochet in the back post of the previous round of single crochet stitches. This will form a thicker ring to help form the basket upright using the cotton cord.

The basket is made working in the round so a stitch marker is highly recommended to keep track.

Single crochet increase only happens at the base of the basket.

You finish by crocheting the top of the basket after the second round of X’s, by slip stitching evenly and fastening off.

YARN

I wanted to quickly talk about the different yarn that will probably be used with this pattern. I specifically created this pattern to be used with the cotton cord, that can be easily found in most craft stores by the macrame section).

This cord is easy to work with (1.5mm) and holds the basket a bit better than just cotton or the most popular Home Dec. Although those are some of my favorite yarns to work with, I prefer the cord for this pattern.  I went ahead and made a few other samples to show you the difference in size and shape using the exact same pattern as you can see down below.

If you have cotton, stiffer kind like sugar and cream or Premier, I would suggest holding two strands together. It may make the basket a tad bigger but you will have a basket that may hold its shape a little better.

Step by step crochet technique.

Getting the “X” design is very simple and will make more sense as you start working them. The second double crochet stitch will go through the front of the previous double crochet to create the “X” effect that gives the basket it’s visual texture.

Even a cute way to keep little snacks on a small desk 😉

    Hi, thanks so much for sharing this pattern! It is super cute, fun to make, and fast! I love it. I’m not sure what I did, but I had 18 X’s not 17, but my stitch counts matched yours so it worked out. I will definitely be making more and checking out your other patterns 🙂
