I love this coffee bar crochet tea basket pattern. It is perfect to hold your specialty tea bags, pencils, pens, or anything that is long and slender. You will find a tutorial on how to add a stiff fabric covered cardboard liner to this Tea basket on my youtube channel. Pair it with other Crochet Heart Stitch items from the Proverb’s Series.

The stiff fabric covered lining can be removed for easy cleaning of the coffee bar crochet tea basket.
A change of fabric will create a new look for your coffee bar.The gray flannel plaid is so nice. It seems to give a farmhouse vibe.

Coffee Bar Crochet Tea Basket Pattern
Beginning: Using MC, ch 11
sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across; ch 1 & Turn (10 st’s)
Row 2 – 28:
sc in 1st st and in each ch across; ch 1 & Turn; (10 st’s)
The rest of the pattern will be written in rounds, and the round numbers will start over.
(It is very helpful to watch this video, starting at the 2:30 mark) Turn slightly, and begin to sc around the edge of the base. starting with 3 sc st’s at the corner, placing it on the side of the sc that was just made.
Place a sc in the side of each row & Place 3 sc st’s at each corner, placing them at the edge or the side of the stitch.
Join w/slp st to first st made & ch1.
Stitch count is not important at this point, as we will take care of the stitch count by doing a little bit of math. Don’t worry, it’s easy.
bp hdc in 1st st, and in each st around, join w/slp st to beg. st, ch1 (83 sc)
Now it is time to do some Math. Count your stitches.
Please watch this video & fast forward to the 11.00 mark, and it will help you understand the reason for the math equation down below.
My stitch count was 83. The heart stitch requires a multiple of 6 stitches exactly. I will work the math equation using my numbers, but you will find a fill in the blank equation for you, below this equation. There is no wrong number count. If you have a stitch count that is divisible by 6, then decrease 3 stitches in Round’s 3 & 5.
Divide your stitch count by 6.
83 ÷ 6 = 13.8 Next multiply 6 x 13
6 x 13 = 78 Next subtract 78 from 83
83 – 78 = 5 I have 5 stitches left over. I will need to decrease by 5 stitches. If you have 3 stitches at the end of the equation, you will need to decrease by 3 stitches.
I will randomly, but evenly place markers around the basket, with a concentration of placing them on the sides of the basket. The sides of the basket will be soft and could collapse out. We need the sides of the basket to start pushing into the center.
Blank Equation For You To Fill In Your Numbers to create the coffee bar crochet tea basket:
- Your stitch count ÷ 6 = (whole number) dot. blah blah:
a. Next multiply 6 x by the whole number only
- 6 x whole number = a
b. Next subtract a from Your stitch count
- Your stitch count – a = b
c. The answer for step 3, is the amount of times you need to decrease, to get your stitch count, to a multiple of 6.
Round 3: You are looking at the outside of the coffee bar crochet tea basket IMPORTANT: Switch to G-6/4.00 mm crochet hook
hdc in 1st/joining st, and in each st around, making sure to execute a hdc dec at each marker, join w/slp st to beg. hdc; ch 1
Execute 6 decreases around the perimeter of the basket, 2 on each side, and 1 on each short end. Do not decrease directly over the top of a decrease, in the previous round.
hdc in 1st/joining st, and in each st across, until you reach a marker, and then execute a hdc dec. join w/slp st to beg. hdc, dropping the MC and pulling up the CC at the join; ch 2 & Turn
