Descriptive explanation on how to make a miniature crochet basket for decoration.

If you are a miniature crochet lover, like me this pattern is for you!

I’ll show you how to crochet a simple small basket with two side handles and one center handle.

I thought of making this tutorial, to combine it with an amigurumi bunny, with chocolate eggs inside the basket, to give at Easter to my kids!

📗Abbreviations and meaning (US terms)

  • MR = Magic Ring
  • SC = single crochet
  • INC = increase, 2 SC in the same stitch
  • DEC = decrease SC 2 together
  • SL ST= slip stitch
  • CH = chain
  • REP * = repeat from * to * for the indicated time.

Start with a circular base in a spiral, without closing with the slip stitch.

Use a stitch marker to mark the last stitch of each round and move it to each new round, it will be useful for not losing count.

Repeat from 1st to 8th round to make a second circle, and sew it on the bottom of the basket.

Finished the 8th round, make 1 SL ST in the next stitch and cut the yarn, leaving a long tail, use it to sew.

Passa il filo tra l’asola posteriore delle maglie del cerchio appena fatto e nell’asola del 9° giro del cestino (ossia il punto in cui hai lavorato la maglia bassa nell’asola posteriore e quindi prenderai l’asola in evidenza).

Pass the thread between the back loop stitch of the circle you just made and in the stitch of the 9th round of the basket (i.e. the round where you worked the back loop only).

📜 Small basket with central handles pattern

Follow the explanation of the previous basket from 1st to 4th round.

51 SC in each stitches around BACK LOOP ONLY24
6-91 SC in each stitches around24×4

Start making the central handles of the basket: make 10 CHs and 1 SC in each CH to return on the base of the basket.

Work 1 SC in each stitches around and finish the basket crocheting the Crab stitch.

Close with 1 SL ST and cut the yarn, leave a long tail and use it to sew one side of the handles on the opposite side of the basket.
