This crochet basket pattern combines the coziness of super bulky yarn with the texture of the Celtic weave stitch to create a homey, handy basket. This charming basket with optional handles (or a drawstring!) is an intermediate crochet pattern, but don’t worry! We’ve done our best to make sure you don’t get lost in the pattern. You can use this basket to hold household items, books, blankets, or anything else your heart desires! Finish this pattern with handles or a drawstring, or make two baskets so you’ll have one of both!
