What a beautiful basket and it is easy to crochet. This precious Victorian Heirloom Basket will help with storage needs whether it’s in the loo, bedroom or any place you need a bit of fancy storage! It is super fast to crochet as you will be holding two strands of yarn, and a large crochet hook. The Pint Mason Jar cover is free on this website, and you can pick up the Quart Mason Jar cover on Ravelry.

The “Victorian Heirloom Basket” features a drop over lace edge that has a crochet chart for you to follow. You will then switch to a smaller crochet hook and use only one strand of yarn, and yes the lace is easy too!
This oval basket is lovely and is the first crochet pattern to be released in the “Victorian Heirloom Bath Set”. My testers have fallen in love with this piece and they have already crocheted a few baskets for gift giving!
The Jar Covers are a lovely accompaniment to the basket.
A New Color Combination
My daughter fell in love with this set, and requested that it be made in a yellow, gray, cream color combination. It’s a lovely color choice and will match her bedroom set.
I will use Royal blue and white next time I make the “Victorian Heirloom Bath Set”. What color combinations would you use when making this basket? If you make this basket or any other piece in this set, maybe you could drop by my facebook group and share a picture or two? Here’s the Link

Belinda Ehl says
Your patterns look lovely. Having said that, I received a notice for a free pattern Victorian Baskets. I can not find the pattern even after signing up for an account!
How can I help you? Did you get a notification from Ravelry?
I have the same problem can you help me sending the link to my email
Hi Priya, When I first released this pattern it was free…I was excited about my new blog and I posted about it on the blog, but I was clear it was free only for a limited time. Lesson learned, someone took my photos and ran with it. When I release a pattern and if I have a time of sharing, I announce it on my instagram, and face book accounts only. Please join my FB group as that is the best place to find announcements about free patterns. Thank you so much for understanding.
I have the same problem can you please send me the pattern
I responded to a second of your comments…not sure if you saw it or not.
This basket is beautiful! Thank you so much for sharing!! 🙂
Thank you, and you are so welcome!
You are so welcome!

I love them I am going to make them for my granddaughter Savannah as a remembrance of me. Her favorite color is blue so I will make it Victorian blue trimmed in ivory for her vanity and the jars when released. She is a girly girl and the only granddaughter we spend hours together just reading and telling stories. I know she will love them as I do. Thank you for such a beautiful item.
Wow love the colours
Thank you Colleen.
I saw on Ravelry that a code was available on your web site so the pattern for your basket could be purchased for $2.50. I can’t seem to find it on here. Can you please help me? Thank you. They are beautiful!
My apologies, that sale was over, but it was my mistake, so I am putting it back on sale through June 30 2018.
Here is the ravelry listing to make it easier. I do apologize.
I,too, saw this lovely basket as a free pattern. If it isn’t free and no longer on sale for $2.50,how much is it ?
The basket was on sale through June 30th. Here is a link to the pattern. Thank you so much for asking.

This said it was a free pattern on Pinterest! I wish people weren’t allowed to do that.
I agree Carmen. When I released this pattern it was free for a day or two. I was excited about my new blog and I posted about it on the blog, but I was clear it was free only for a limited time. Lesson learned, they took my photos and ran with it. Now if I have a time of sharing, I announce it on my instagram, and face book accounts only. Please join my FB group as that is the best place to find announcements about free patterns. Thank you so much for understanding.
Hi, I love the toilet paper basket! I’d love to make it. Is the pattern available for free?
I am so sorry it is not a free pattern, the mason jar cover than matches the tissue basket is a free pattern on my blog.
How would you recommend to increase this for the rows if one were to make a bigger size?
It totally depends on what you want to do with it. Are you wanting to square it up, round it out? There are so many directions you can take with any basic design. The key is knowing the height of your stitches and placing them in the places you want, to get the effect that you want. It’s like building blocks.
