I love these crochet oval baskets because they are rounded and I like the more fluent shapes than the geometric squares. They are made with bulky yarn and hold their shape nicely. I came up with two sizes because having things in sets is adorable, plus, you can always find more than enough little things just lying around the house that need a little basket.

Let’s get into the details!

You will need:

Super bulky yarn approximately 110 m (120 yds)
US L/ 8 mm and US M/ 9 mm crochet hook
yarn needle
scissors

Gauge: 4 st and 4 rows is 2 inches in sc

Dimensions

Small: 7,5 x 4,5 x 3,5 inches   (19 x 11 x 8 cm)
Large: 9,5 x 5,5 x 4 inches  (24 x 14 x 10 cm)

  1. Will any super bulky yarn work, or do you need a percentage of wool to make it stiff enough?
    These are really cute by the way!

    1. Thank you Layne! I believe that having a percentage of acrylic is better if we are talking about stiffness.
