Linked Crochet Tutorial
If you are new to the world of linked crochet, this is a great starter pattern for you. You are working in simple turning rows with no increases and no decreases. Additionally, you are only working with one stitch – the linked double crochet stitch – the whole time.
Linked crochet is truly quite simple. All of the basic stitches that you already know are the same in linked crochet – the only difference is where you will insert your hook. Otherwise, the stitch is still made the same way you know it.
Here is a really great video tutorial to get you started. Or maybe you’ve done linked crochet in the past but you are feeling a little rusty. This video tutorial will be a great refresher for you.

Crochet Square Basket
Because this is such a simple crochet pattern, you can very easily adjust the size to fit your needs. Need something small? Start with a shorter starting chain. Or maybe you want something bigger. Then you would start with a longer starting chain.
I don’t know about you, but I just love the organization aspect of keeping things in little baskets. You can make a tiny basket just to hold small things like hair ties or hairpins. On the other hand, you could make it to fit a large bowl or even a casserole dish. You get to customize this to fit many different sizes of things.
No matter what you choose, at the end of the day, it’s something that’s handmade and you or your loved ones can use it for years to come.
