Rustic Farmhouse Style Basket

Sharing is caring!

New Free crochet pattern! The Rustic Farmhouse Style Basket. 

I needed a crochet basket to hold all the spa goodies I prepared for my girls for Valentine’s Day. So I whipped up this cute little basket for them.

Rustic Farmhouse Style Basket

To begin with, you’ll need a few things to get started. Firstly, you’ll need a ball of super bulky weight yarn. Secondly, a 9-11mm crochet hook. Lastly, some jute twine to give your crochet basket a rustic look.

The first crochet basket I made inspired me to make create a set of nesting baskets. Therefore I could use them for a variety of things. I used Super Bulky yarn so that the crochet baskets would work up quickly and be nice and sturdy.

I love it when I can crochet something I need with all the supplies on hand!  Even better when it only takes about 30 minutes to make!  I had everything I needed in my craft supplies to make this cute set.

Nesting baskets

Unfortunately, the original yarn I used, Sprightly yarns are no longer available, but I’ve found a great substitute for you. Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick works perfectly and has lots of great colours to choose from. Read on for the Free pattern.

Special Stitches:

Reverse SC – Reverse single crochet stitch is the same as regular single crochet — except in reverse. Instead of working from right to left, you work from left to right.

CSC – Centre Single Crochet (Waistcoat Stitch) Formed the same way as standard single crochet. Instead of working, the usual way locate the inverted V-shape on the post of the stitch 1 row below. Insert your hook in the centre of that V.  Create loose stitches with a large hook to make it easier to insert the hook into the V.
