This is a free crochet pattern for a woven cable stitch basket! It is a stunning crochet pattern that will look impressive in any room of the house.

Right now I am in the mood to make lots and lots of crochet baskets.

Perfect timing, as it is springtime, spring cleaning and re-organizing the house for me is to make the house pretty with decorations.

In my case handmade decorations.

This woven cable basket is fast and easy to make. First, you make the cable pattern which has a 4-row repeat, therefore super easy to do.

I even have a video below on how to do the woven cable stitch.

Now, you need to attach the circle bottom to the woven cable pattern by holding the pretty side of the bottom as such that it is on the inside the basket, then do 1 sc per sc of the circle to the woven cable basket (like you did with the edge just this time to the bottom).

Fasten off and weave in the ends. You are done!

Of course, you can make the basket taller and bigger in diameter. All you have to do is increase the number of chains or foundation single crochets by 6 as many times as you need/want to reach the height of the basket you would like to have.

Furthermore, you increase the diameter, by repeating the 4 rows more than 12 times in total.

Correspondingly, you can increase the circle for the bottom by continuing with the pattern as written above.

Just be sure to check that the circle is neither too large or too small when increasing the number of repeats of the rows for the woven cable pattern.

  1. Just wondering for durability purposes if this could somehow be adapted to be crocheted as one piece? What I was thinking was using two strands of yarn, crocheting the bottom then working up the sides. Just not sure how to get some pattern for sides. As you can tell I’m not a designer.

    1. Yes, you could do that. But it would not work for this cable pattern if you want it to run side ways (Like me). But I you want it to go upwards then yes, you can do it in one whole piece without sewing. Hope tis helps.
