Crochet this round basket to decorate your seaside or farm house home. You can use it as a bread basket or a catch-all for coasters and mug rugs. Adding a fabric covered cardboard liner, will give it a bit of sturdiness, and increase it’s decorating value. I will show you how to add that liner in a video I have produced for you. I really enjoy adding stiff linings to crocheted baskets. The free crochet pattern is below, just keep scrolling, or you can purchase an ad free pdf at Ravelry or Etsy for less than a cup of coffee.
I sometimes use affiliate links in my posts. This won’t cost you anything, but will help offset the cost of yarn and other supplies needed, so that I can continue bringing you crochet patterns and craft ideas. Thank you so much for your support.
This video will show you how to add a liner to this round basket.
Coordinate this round basket with the Summer Celebration Table Runner. Place the round basket on a side table, or just put it in the middle of the table with your Summer Celebration Placemats, either would be a decorating win! There is also a square napkin basket to help create a beautiful table setting.

Love the drop stitch on this and the size!
Thank you! The tutorial video on the mug rug shows how to execute the Spike Single Crochet stitch. It’s so easy and adds a pop of color.

I’m always looking for ways to stabilize my baskets. This is the reason I don’t make crochet baskets. But since I’ve found your ideas on this I love it. This basket is perfect for the suggestions you’ve given as well as for baby items that will go on the changing table!
Oh yes! A changing table! You could add a lot of little things that can easily be lost in this basket! Thank you for the idea!
