Green Crocheting: Fabric Nesting Baskets Pattern

Fabric Nesting Baskets Crochet Pattern

I love these little nesting baskets!  They are perfect for organizing your office, counter tops, baby’s room, or anywhere else you need an attractive storage solution.  The fabric yarn used to make these baskets gives them a cozy charm and makes them more durable to use for storage than baskets made from regular yarn. To learn how to make fabric yarn, see my tutorial Making Fabric into Yarn.

Fabric Nesting Baskets

Here’s what you need:

  • Fabric yarn (approx. ½ full-size flat sheet)
  • M hook
  • tapestry needle
  • stitch marker

Click here to reference the Crochet Abbreviations Chart.

Finished baskets measure as follows: Small = approx. 6 in. x 2½ in.; Medium = approx. 7 in. x 3 in.; Large = approx. 8 in. x 3½ in.

 

Tip: Use a stitch marker to keep track of rounds.
