Pocket-Style Hanging Basket - Crochet Pattern


Notes

- The step up chains do not count as stitches in this pattern.
- When working in the round, the pattern states to "join with sl st." This means to join in the first hdc in the round.
- On the next round, when the next stitch(es) are worked into the first stitch, that is the same stitch that you slipped stitch into to join.
- The finished basket is turned inside out so that the "wrong side" is what is displayed. Keep that in mind if you make any modifications.

Materials

- Yarn - 1 skein of Bernat Home Dec (I used the Aqua colorway)
- J 6.00 mm Crochet Hook
- Measuring Tape
- Scissors
- Tapestry Needle

Abbreviations

Ch = Chain
MR = Magic Ring
Hdc = Half-double Crochet Stitch
Sl st = Slip Stitch
St = Stitch
