Geometric Crochet Basket Tutorial

Geometric Crochet Basket Tutorial

Hey there! It’s Alexis from Persia Lou back with a little crochet project. I have been loving everything black and white and geometric lately, so I decided to see how I could interpret the trend in crochet. I ended up with this little basket that is a perfect addition to my craft area, which I am currently working on organizing and sprucing up.

This basket has lots of fun texture, so while it may look complex, it really only uses variations of the single crochet. Simple! You can totally make this.

Geometric Crochet Basket Pattern

Materials needed:

  • Cotton worsted weight yarn in two colors (I used one ball each of Lily Sugar N’ Cream in black and white)
  • Size H (5.00 mm) crochet hook
  • Leather
  • Thread
  • Sewing Machine or Needle

With the black yarn,

Round 1: 7 sc in magic ring (San recently posted a great photo tutorial on how to make a magic ring for her cute bunny basket), sl st to join.

Round 2: ch 1, 2 sc in each st around (14 sc)

Round 3: ch 1, *sc, 2 sc in next stitch, repeat from * 6 times, sl st to join (21 sc)

Round 4: ch 1, *sc, sc, 2 sc in next stitch, repeat from * 6 times, sl st to join (28 sc)

Round 5: ch 1, *sc, sc, sc, 2 sc in next stitch, repeat from * 6 times, sl st to join (35 sc)

Round 6: ch 1, *sc, sc, sc, sc, 2 sc in next stitch, repeat from * 6 times, sl st to join (42 sc)

Round 7: ch 1, *sc, sc, sc, sc, sc, 2 sc in next stitch, repeat from * 6 times, sl st to join (49 sc)

Round 8: ch 1, *sc, sc, sc, sc, sc, sc, 2 sc in next stitch, repeat from * 6 times, sl st to join (56 sc)

Round 9: ch 1, *sc, sc, sc, sc, sc, sc, sc, 2 sc in next stitch, repeat from * 6 times, sl st to join (63 sc)

Round 10: ch 1, *sc, sc, sc, sc, sc, sc, sc, sc, 2 sc in next stitch, repeat from * 6 times, sl st to join (70 sc)

Round 11: ch 1, *sc, sc, sc, sc, sc, sc, sc, sc, sc, 2 sc in next stitch, repeat from * 6 times, sl st to join (77 sc)

Round 12: ch 1, *sc, sc, sc, sc, sc, sc, sc, sc, sc, sc, 2 sc in next stitch, repeat from * 6 times, sl st to join (84 sc)

Round 13: ch 1, *sc, sc, sc, sc, sc, sc, sc, sc, sc, sc, sc, 2 sc in next stitch, repeat from * 6 times, sl st to join (91 sc)

Round 14: working in back loops only (see photo below) sc in each st around, sl st to join (91 sc)

Rounds 15-21: ch 1, sc in each st around, sl st to join (91 sc). Finish off, weave in ends.

At this point your basket will look like this:

Now it’s time to join the white yarn and start adding the geometric pattern and texture. To create the zig-zag pattern, the next row of sc is worked into the previous rows. Below I have pictured how to work a sc into the stitch two rows below the current working row.

When you work the stitch, be sure to pull the yarn up to the top of the piece so it doesn’t pull or bunch.

Round 21: with the white yarn, ch 1,* sc, sc in next st 1 row down, sc in next st 2 rows down, sc in next st 3 rows down, sc in next st 2 rows down, sc in next st 1 row down, repeat from * 15 times, sc in next st, sl st to join (91 sc).

Rounds 22- 25: ch 1, sc in each st around, sl st to join (91 sc).

The next round repeats the zig-zag pattern from Round 21 in white yarn to add more texture.

Round 26: ch 1,* sc, sc in next st 1 row down, sc in next st 2 rows down, sc in next st 3 rows down, sc in next st 2 rows down, sc in next st 1 row down, repeat from * 15 times, sc in next st, sl st to join (91 sc).

The final 3 rounds are worked in the back loops only to create a striped texture.

Round 27: working in back loops only, ch 1, sc in each st around, sl st to join (91 sc). Finish off, weave in ends.

Yay! Now we’re nearly done! Here’s what it looks like now:

At this point the basket could be complete, but I decided to add a couple of leather handles to finish off the modern look. To make the handles, you will need to cut two pieces of leather to 1 1/4″ x 6 1/2″.

Finally, sew the handles onto your basket by first sewing a rectangle and then an X through the middle of the rectangle with a heavy duty needle and sewing machine.

And that’s it! My new little basket is holding some of my favorite yarns. Seeing them displayed in my craft space gets me inspired to get making.
