I loved the result so much, that I had to show you that! This is the first T-shirt yarn basket I ever made and it came out just perfect. I was searching for days to find an easy and attractive pattern and as always I used two and three patterns and techniques at the end! Enjoy the below tutorial and free pattern!

Supplies: 

  1. one big ball of T-shirt yarn at grey color
  2. a small a mount of T-shirt yarn at yellow-mustard color
  3. crochet hook 12mm
  4. scissors

Procedure: 

With the 12mm hook and the grey fabric chain 2.

Round 1: 8 sc in 2nd ch from hook

Round 2: 2 hdc in each st. Join with sl st. (16 hdc)

Round 3: Ch 2, hdc in same st, hdc in next st, (2 hdc in next st, hdc in next st) around. Join with sl st. (24 hdc)

Round 4: Ch 2, hdc in same st, hdc in next 2 sts, (2 hdc in next st, hdc in next 2 sts) around. Join with sl st. (32 hdc)

Round 5: Ch 2, hdc in same st, hdc in next 3 sts, (2 hdc in next st, hdc in next 3 sts) around. Join with sl st. (40 hdc)

The next round will be the first row of the body of the basket. You will be working into the back of each hdc.(Half double crochet stitches have a line or ridge on the back of the stitch). You will be working under this line or ridge, not into the regular loops.8.jpg

Round 6: Ch 1, sc under the line or ridge on the back of the first st of previous round. Continue working sc around. Join with a sl st.

That way you will create a seam separating the bottom and body of the basket.
