Say hello to the favorite sister of the Herringbone Handle Basket, the Herringbone Hanging Basket! This crochet basket pattern is a beautiful addition to any home!
Believe it or not, this was the very first pattern I wrote up after my little crochet break when my market season finished last fall. It sprung from the need I had for a place to store my winter gloves while I wasn’t wearing them.
Why a hanging basket for that you ask? Well you see, my beautiful, wonderful, puppy (and by puppy I mean my 105 pound Bernese Mountain Dog ) George, ate my last pair of gloves, so I need a place to keep my gloves up and out of her reach. Add that to the fact that I had just hung a new hook rack by my back door and I came up with the idea to create a basket that would hang on my new rack and hide my gloves. If you know me though, I don’t want something to just be functional, I want it to be beautiful as well.
So here we are, with a crochet basket pattern that is both of those things!
It took me a while to nail down the sizes that can be created from this pattern because I wanted them to be useful. Coming in 5 sizes, you can use this crochet basket pattern to create a basket to hold car keys in your mudroom, your flat iron in your bathroom, or a plant in your entry way.

This crochet basket patterns is sure to become one of your favorites! It works from the bottom up in rows and offers beautiful texture in every row. In addition, the handle works seamlessly into the design, while being sturdy and strong enough to hold whatever you need to store in your basket!
Like the Herringbone Handle Basket, this is an advanced beginner level pattern. To begin, you’ll need to know how to make and work stitches into a magic circle. In addition, you work the whole pattern holding two strands of yarn together. Now this can take some getting used to if you’ve never done it before, however to make it easier, I highly suggest using two different skeins and pulling the yarn from the center of both skeins. Working with your yarn this way helps lessen the chance of your yarn twisting together and creating a tangled mess.
This crochet basket pattern only uses basic stitches. There is a modification of the half double crochet stitch used, but I do provide instructions for completing that stitch. It really starts to flow off your hook after you get the hang of it!
While gauge may not be the most important part of the puzzle with these baskets, I have provided gauge in the written pattern in two different forms. This means that if you want to match my basket’s size exactly, there is nothing standing in your way. I would recommend using the base of your basket as your ruler for meeting gauge. If you end up at the same diameter as I did when indicated as you’re following the pattern, you should be on track to create the same size basket as I did.
