6 Rope Crochet Basket Patterns



1. Rope Crochet Basket

This rope crochet basket is similar to the Ropey Rainbows basket we featured a few weeks back? We’ve had some requests for more baskets, and this one was a big contrast to the other one we posted. So thought you might like this too, for a bit of a change.

This one features less of the yarn and more of the rope for a more natural and rustic look and feel. The Rainbow Basket was round, thisbasket has a rectangular base with rounded corners.

It works up the same way but with a lot less yarn. Using about a 1/4 to a 3rd of the yarn used in the ropey rainbows basket.

You will need:

  • Length of rope (this one used was 38m in length and 6mm diameter, for a 22x42x17cm basket)  Try looking in hardware stores and garden centers.
  • Stash yarn (this example used 310m of Patons 100% cotton 4ply in a cream colourway)
  • Size 5.00mm crochet hook (use a metal hook if possible as the work is quite stiff), or larger if your rope is thicker

Our tip – get a nice set of ergonomic crochet hooks or use some crochet hook cushions for this project as it can be quite stiff and you’ll want to crochet quite tightly in places.

2. Rope Crochet Basket Pattern by Cara Corey

This rope crochet basket pattern shows you how to crochet a basket with thick cotton rope, using your fingers rather than a crochet hook to make the stitches. 

These rope basket crochets are great for storing craft supplies, toys, books, and other household items. The crochet pattern creates very sturdy sides.

The basket is approximately 10 inches in diameter and 8 inches tall, although yours may come out slightly different. If you wanted to adjust the size of the basket, you could make a bigger or smaller ring of stitches before starting your side stitches.

6. Coiled Crochet Basket with Rope Pattern by 1 Dog Woof

Here’s a way to make a Coiled Crochet Basket that’s quick and easy, and allows you to use up scraps of thinner yarn in the process.

You may use cord that is very soft and flexible or use ropes so you’d get something much sturdier, but also much heavier and/or less flexible.
