Ahhhh, my first free pattern!! I’m so excited to have this space to share free content with you all now.
I stumbled on the Big Twist Tubular Yarn while wandering around Jo-Ann, and I just had to pick up a couple of skeins. I got home and immediately started digging into them! A day or two later, and this little cutie was created!
There are so many things that I love about this pattern. It is created using only ONE SKEIN, it can be crocheted in just an hour or two, and it’s the perfect little couch buddy to keep all of your current project materials contained. Ready to get started?!

I used 1 skein of Big Twist Tubular by Loops & Threads. This yarn is very unique. The best way to describe it is a thin knit-like tube that is stuffed on the inside. One “strand” of this yarn is roughly as wide around as your thumb. This makes for a very sturdy end result! You can shop this yarn at Joann here.
If you don’t have access to this yarn, you can look for approximately 40yds of a similar JUMBO 7 weight yarn.
- 19.00mm hoo (I purchased mine at Joann here
- Flexible Tape Measure
- Stitch Marker
- ch: chain
- sc: single crochet
- sc-flo: single crochet in the front loop only
- slst: slip stitch
Follow along with the “end of round” measurements throughout the pattern. Your measurements do not need to exactly align with mine, but I recommend staying close so that you do not run out of yarn.
10″ long x 7″ wide x 5″ tall
- Written in US Terms
- Beginning ch 1 does NOT count as a stitch
- When working your stitches, make sure that you are scooting your stitches all the way onto your hook. This ensures that your loops are reaching their proper size, in comparison to the hook you are using.
START THE PATTERN
Row 1: Starting in the second ch from the hook, sc in each stitch across. (5)
From this point on, you will be working in rounds around the base row you just created.
If needed, use a stitch marker of the beginning of each round to help keep track of your stitch count.
Rnd 2: Ch 1. 2sc in the first stitch, sc in each of the next 3 stitches, 2sc in each of the next 2 stitches, sc in each of the next 3 stitches, and 2sc in the last stitch. Sl st join to the starting stitch. (14)
Rnd 3: Ch 1. You will be starting in the same stitch that you just joined into. 2sc in the first stitch, sc in each of the next 5 stitches, 2sc in each of the next 2 stitches, sc in each of the next 5 stitches, and 2sc in the last stitch. Place one last sc in the join space from the previous row and sl st join to the starting stitch. (19)
You’ve completed the base, and you will now be working the sides of the basket.
Rnd 4: Ch 1. You will be starting in the same stitch that you just joined into. Sc-flo in each stitch around. Sl st join to the starting stitch. (19)
Rnd 5: Ch 1. You will be starting in the same stitch that you just joined into. Sc in each stitch around. Sl st join to the starting stitch. (19)
You will be creating the handles during this last round.
Rnd 6: Ch 1. You will be starting in the same stitch that you just joined into. Sc in each of the next 9 stitches. Ch 3, skip a stitch, sc in each of the next 9 stitches, and ch 3.
You have now used up all 19 stitches. Your second handle will go across the join stitch from the previous rnd.
Cut your yarn, leaving a 12”-18” tail. To secure your handle to the basket, pull the tail through the last ch from the ch 3. This will secure the ch closed. Locate the first sc stitch from the last round. From the inside to outside of the basket, pull the tail through the stitch. Then relocate the 3rd ch from the ch 3 and pull the tail back through the ch. This creates an “invisible join”.
To weave in your ends, locate lines in the work that you can hide the tails along. Align your tail with a line in the work, push the tail through to the other side of the basket, and repeat multiple times until your ends feel secure.
You’re all finished! Load up your caddy with your next yarn WIP and enjoy the organization that your new basket brings!
