This is a free handy basket crochet pattern with removable dividers made with just single crochet stitches. This is a great beginner pattern with a video tutorial.
The easiest way to crochet a hard and strong basket is with cotton yarn and then harden it with a glue-water mixture. But it’s also important for a basket to be multi-functional. And this cotton basket is exactly that. It has removable dividers. It is the 5th free crochet pattern of the Advent Calendar Mystery Crochet Along.
This handy gift pattern is the 5th pattern (December 5th) of the 24 patterns. The cotton basket with removable dividers can be used for makeup, notions, jewelry, or anything else you need to store, organize and keep in a safe place.
This cotton basket with removable dividers was made with just single crochet stitches. Easily change up the color or use multiple colors to make the basket more eye-catching. I chose the color ecru to keep it neutral and elegant.
This pattern as all the patterns in this Advent Calendar Mystery Crochet Along comes with a video tutorial to guide you through the pattern.

First, you’ll start by crocheting the bottom of the basket, then you’ll move on to the sides. Lastly, you’ll crochet two dividers and then sew them together.
Instructions for the Organizer Basket
Start with a Magic Ring
R1: ch 1, add 8 sc to the ring, close the ring, sl st to the 1st st
R2: *1 sc, in the next st crochet [1sc, ch 1, 1 sc], repeat from * until the end of the round, sl st
R3: 1 sc in each sc, and in each corner (where the ch space is) crochet [1sc, ch 1, 1 sc]
Repeat R3 until have 11 rounds
Then crochet the following:
R1: turn your project around, 1 sc in the blo (from your current perspective), all around, sl st
R2-11: 1 sc per sts, sl st
Fasten off and weave in your ends.
Dividers for the Organizer Basket
Crochet 2 rectangles
R1: ch 21, starting from the 2nd ch from the hook, 1 sc per ch, turn
R2 – 11: 1 sc per sts, turn
Fold the rectangles in half and sew them together in on the dividing edge.
Harden and Stiffen the Cotton Basket
Soak the pieces in the 50 to 50% glue-water mixture and let it dry to harden (may take 2 days).
