This Lemon Farmhouse Basket is so quick to crochet. Add a stiff cardboard liner and the sides will stay tall and strait. You can use it to hold dinner rolls, and it coordinates perfectly with the other Lemon Farmhouse items. This basket uses unique stitches that give it that little pop. This pattern is part of the “Summer Celebration at Krissys”.
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.
The Lemon Farmhouse Basket goes perfectly with the other items in the Lemon Farmhouse Kitchen and Table Decor Crochet patterns.
I created a Towel Topper It was a first for me. I really enjoyed designing it, and I am sure there will be more variations to come. The Lovely Lemons are the perfect embellishment to the towel topper, and I think they would look so cute as a garland. Of course there are placemats, mug rugs and coasters.
If you would like to know how to add a stiff liner with a cute ruffle to the top of the Lemon Farmhouse Basket, this video will show you how.

Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across, ch 1 & turn

Hooks Needed For the Lemon Farmhouse Basket
MC = Main Color = White
CC1 = Contrasting Color = Yellow
CC2 = Contrasting Color = Navy
ch = Chain
sc = Single Crochet
bp sc = Back Post Single Crochet
h bp sc = High Back Post Single Crochet – wrap the hook high around the post, above the third loop to execute a back post sc
dc = Double Crochet
join w/ = join with
slp st = Slip Stitch
skp = Skip
sp. = Space
nxt = Next
prev. = previous
st./st’s = stitch or stitches
beg. = beginning
* * = Complete sequence between the stars, the number of times stated;
x = Times; example Repeat 2 x or 2 times; 3 x or 3 times and so on;
in = example “in nxt st” means you will be inserting the hook under the top two loops of the next stitch to complete stitch or sequence of stitches stated
yo = Yarn Over
Special Stitch Guide:
crab stitch = reverse single crochet, executing a sc backwards.
mb = Mini Bean Stitch = insert hook into the stitch indicated, draw up a loop, yo, insert hook into the same st, draw up a loop, yo, draw thru all 4 loops on hook, ch 1 to close the stitch.
The mb stitch is a unique cluster stitch. When the pattern is worked in rows each row of stitches has a right and left tilt. It is easy to use the ch 1 space to execute the cluster, but it will not give you the right, left tilt.

slp st in each st around, in a loose fashion, execute a join by slip stitching under the first slp st made, end off . Yarn tails should be at the front, to finish this round thread the yarn tail into a yarn needle, and put the needle in between the “V” of the two loops, and draw the yarn to the inside of the basket. This sequence of stitches should not be tight as it will pull the basket out of shape. (55 st’s)
