Tiny Crocheted Basket



This pattern is one that I worked up myself, but in all honesty I think it is a modification of the patterns found here.  Since this particular one is not found on that page, I will put the instructions for it here.

Thread:  DMC Pearl size 8,  Boye Steel Hook size 10

Turning ch in each row is considered beginning stitch and will be counted with the stitch count of that row.

  • Row 1: Chain 6, hdc in second ch from hook and in each ch across (5 hdc), ch 3, turn.

  • Row 2: dc in each hdc across (5 dc), ch 4, turn.

  • Row 3: trc in same st, 2 trc in each dc across to last dc. 3 trc in last dc (11 trc), ch 5, turn

  • Row 4: 2 dtrc in same space, 3 dtrc in each trc across (27 dtrc), ch 3, turn

  • Row 5: Skip 1 dtrc, sc in next dtrc, *(ch3, skip next drtc, sc in next dtrc)* across (13 scallops).  Do not turn.

  • Working down the side of the basket, sc 5 time in the post of the dtrc, sc in joining of row, 3 sc in the post of the trc, 1 sc in post of dc, (2sc,ch 2,2sc) in ch under hdc to make corner, sc in ea stitch of beginning chain across.  Repeat in reverse up the other side of basket.  Join with sl st to first sc of scallop.  Fasten off.  Weave in end threads.
