Hemp Basket Crochet Pattern

crochet hemp basket

Recently, I found myself strolling at Ace Hardware store more often than usual. I used to go to craft shops to get my craft supplies but now seems like I found an “auxiliary” place to buy… the HARDWARE shop!!! I bought a roll of manila rope from my local Ace Hardware store and made a hemp basket by coiling the rope with yarn using crochet method.

If you have been a facebook fans of Craft Passion, I have asked a question a few hours ago about what can you make with the rope, yarn and a crochet hook, and this is my answer: a hemp basket. Sara has had the closest answer and many of you guessed it right… basket, bingo!!!! I also specially like the answer from Lorraine and Alison, they said plant hanger, coasters, hot pads for the table/counter top, Dimple H said door mat, Yusi said table mat, yes, they can be done with this method too. There are many other creative ideas from the answers, **love them all** I am going to explore them out with it possibilities if time permits, like build a house as Gillian mentioned… may be with a huge roll of rope, who knows… there is no limit when it comes to creativity. I enjoyed reading through all your answers, you are simply awesome!!!!

  1. this is a beautiful basket, I started it last night and it made a flat mat, but it sure is beautiful LOL! I used what I had and the rope isn’t thick or stiff enough so I’m going to get some different rope to work with! It took a little bit to get the hang of the stitches and the instructions but by about the 10th row I figured it all out. Thank you so much for the beautiful pattern

  2. very beautiful..want to make it..Is it works for ordinary yarn??

  3. Would you recommend this as a tote? I currently use a straw bag for church, but it’s breaking because of how much I have to carry.

    • Using this rope to crochet a tote might not be suitable as the tote will be quite heavy. Perhaps substitute the rope with something lighter weight will be a better choice.

      • Thanks. I have rope like this already, so I think I’ll make a doormat. How much yarn do you think I would need for this technique?

        • Hi Janae, I didn’t actually measure how much yarn I use to crochet. It is not much actually, as you can see from the picture that most of the stitches are just chain stitches with single crochet in intervals. I would say half a skein will do just an estimate.

  4. What kind of glue would you suggest?

  5. hello i am french please can bring me french text…impossible to track your insctructions…..with a translator on the net.thank you a lot

  6. Love this craft. I’m sure I’ll try someday. Meanwhile I’ve use a link to this post in my web to explain the technic I’ve used to make a scarf as it’s just the same you’ve explained brilliantly hear. Hope you don’t mind… Otherwise I’ll remove any reference. Thank you very much, Joanne.

  7. Love this! Do you know approx. how many yards of twine you need for a basket this size?

    • Hi bookyeti, I didn’t measure the exact length of the rope I have used for this basket. I remember I used less than a roll of 50ft, so if you convert 50ft into yard, it will be about 16 to 17 yards. Hope this helps.

  8. nossa gostei muito, mas nao consigo traduzir, ha alguma forma de traduzir para o portugues, ficaria muito feliz bjs

    Translation (by Google):
