This is a free Spring Basket Crochet Pattern made with single crochet stitches and the spike stitch, as well as super bulky cotton yarn.
Spring is in the air. And it’s time to make some fun baskets. I use my baskets mainly for yarn and WIP storage, but you can use baskets for many other reasons, too. In fact, I think this Spring Basket Crochet Pattern also makes a great Easter Basket.
If you have multiple kids just make this basket for each kid. You don’t want them to fight over this cute basket. Trust me! LOL
I actually got this beautiful cotton yarn from DMC. They sent it to me to try it out and I’m in love. I stopped all my other projects just so I can use all 3 skeins they sent me to make this cute Spring Basket.
And it turned out so cute, don’t you think? Especially with the Spike stitch creating a color pop of yellow into the green yarn.
I made the basket bottom black because most of my baskets always get dirty – cause I use them that much! LOL
PS: If you prefer baskets without handles, you can easily leave out the handles and just repeat the last full round 2 more times. Some crocheters even like only 1 handle going from one side to another. That is fine too, but you may need extra yarn if you chose to go with this option.

Crocheting baskets is not only fun, but they are usually very functional patterns. Their purpose is a storage solution and to style up the home where it will be used.
Typically baskets are made with very thick and strong – nonstretchy – yarn, you will see them being made often in cotton or t-shirt yarn. This basket was made with the new DMC Nova Vita yarn that comes in 26 different colors.
