Intro – Farmhouse Hanging Basket Crochet Pattern
I am a little bit obsessed with baskets, and so I keep making basket crochet patterns! I just love a crochet project that is cute and useful… and this farmhouse hanging basket crochet pattern is no exception!! I’ve been wanting to create a hanging basket for a while now, but just needed the proper motivation – in this case organization! I’m in the midst of switching my craft room workspace location with one of my kids’ bedrooms, so organizing is on the forefront of my mind.
These cute little crochet hanging baskets work up quickly with doubled worsted weight cotton, so you can make one or a few to your heart’s content!! The size makes them great for storing a wide variety of items depending on where you plan to hang and use them! From remote controls, to yarn, to books and a flashlight by your kid’s bed, to yarn, to toys and paci’s for baby, to snacks in the car, to yarn I’m sure you’ll have no trouble finding a million ways to use them! Grab your yarn and hook and let’s make a Farmhouse Hanging Basket!
