Crochet mini basket pattern:
Round 1: Make adjustable ring. 6 sc into the ring. Join.
How to join the round: insert the hook from back to front into the first sc (underneath both loops) and pull the last loop through. After that again insert the hook underneath the loop that you just formed and place last loop back on the hook, yarn over and pull through all loops on the hook. We have joined the first Round. Check video tutorial for detailed instructions.
Round 2: Ch 1 (count as 1 sc), 2 sc in each st around, 1 sc in the same stitch as ch 1 – 12 sc. Join as 1st round.
Round 3: Ch 1 (count as 1 sc), [2 sc, 1 sc] – repeat 5 times, 2 sc – 18 sc. Join as 1st round.
Round 4: Ch 1 (count as 1 sc), [1 sc, 1 sc, 2 sc] – repeat 5 times, 1sc, 1 sc, 1 sc in the same stitch as ch 1 – 24 sc. Join as 1st round.
Round 5: in back loops only, work 1 sc in each stitch around. Join as 1st round.
Round 6-9: work 1 sc in each sts around – 24 csc. Join as 1st round. Do not cut the yarn and go on with basket handle.
For the basket handle, I do recommend you watching video tutorial from 24:34 to get a better idea on how to do it.
Finish crocheting basket with one round of sl st into each stitch around the border preliminary switching to the bigger size crochet hook (9 mm). Join as shown in the video.
Fasten off and weave in all ends.
