The Design

“Cute, roomy, useful!”

With a free adaptation to our original pattern, we’ve created a nice, roomy, and utterly practical version of our Crocheted Baskets! With a raffia yarn held double in this pattern’s sturdy single crochet, our basket’s scale gets a boost—and it gains a nice, stand-up structure. It can hold anything from rolled hand towels to skeins of yarn for your next project—to picnic goodies! And those large, slotted handles make it easy to tote along.

We chose to crochet this cute basket in Wool and the Gang’s Ra-Ra Raffia held double throughout. This biodegradable, vegan yarn is made of 100% long wood fiber—essentially paper. And it’s very crochet-friendly! Lightweight, quick-drying, and with an excellent structure, Ra-Ra Raffia promises that your Crocheted Basket will be up for anything—bathroom storage, picnics, beach days, and more!
