Quick Crochet hanging basket free pattern

It’s time for another fun, a practical project with this crochet basket hanging-free pattern. A crochet hanging basket is a cute storage item.

The crochet hanging basket typically features a round or oval base, sides that extend upwards to form the basket, and a handle or loop at the top that allows it to be hung. I have added a functional handle that can be hung from a hook on a wall, a door knob, or even from a ceiling fixture.

These baskets are a versatile storage solution and can be used to organize various items around the home, such as fruit in the kitchen, toiletries in the bathroom, or craft supplies in your workspace. They also add a touch of handmade, rustic charm to your home decor.

The beauty of this crochet wall hanging basket is that it allows for a lot of customization in terms of size, and color making this basket a unique piece. This means you can create a crochet hanging basket that perfectly fits your space and meets your needs.

A few other crochet baskets to check out include the yarn basket, Easter basket, and mini basket.
