This hanging basket crochet pattern is absolutely darling, free and whips up quickly! It’s perfect for organizing kids toys or stuffed animals in.
My boys have a ton of stuffed animals in their bedrooms and I needed an easy storage solution! So I created this simple hanging basket that can be used to store all kinds of things.
I love quick and easy projects like this that also provide a useful organizational hack for our home! Fun to create and great for using in the kids bedrooms.
This free pattern is easy to make bigger or smaller depending on the size of hanging basket that you want. I made a smaller version as well for hanging plants in!

Cute basket! It would be good to know if the CH2 counts as a stitch. Also are we not joining w a slip stitch at the end of each round? Thanks for the pattern!
Thank you so much! I’ve added a note to the post. The Ch 2 does not count as a stitch and there is no sl st needed at the end of each round. Happy crocheting!
So, when decreasing, it says 15 DC then 5 DC then 2tog. So, is that 20DC then 2tog?
It’s 20 DC then 10 DC 2tog stitches (taking 20 regular stitches down to 10). Hope that helps!
So why separate 15 and then 5?
I am going to update the pattern soon!
Hey! Thanks for the pattern! I’m on my second and I keep ending up with a bit of a nipple shape with my first 2 rows. Is that normal? The second row, DC 10 in the loop, am I just picking 2 stitches of the first row to do 2 DC in?
