Recently, I found myself strolling at the Ace Hardware store more often than usual. I used to go to craft shops to get my craft supplies but now seems like I have found an alternative 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 the crochet method.

If you have been a Facebook fan of Craft Passion, I asked a question a few hours ago about what you can make with the rope, yarn, and a crochet hook, and here is my answer: a crochet basket. Sara has had the closest answer, and many of you guessed it right… basket, bingo!!!! I also especially like the answer from others, they said plant hangers, coasters, and hot pads for the table/countertop, doormat, and table mat. There are many other creative ideas from the answers, there is no limit when it comes to creativity. I enjoyed reading through all your answers, you are simply awesome!!!!

Craft Supplies

The finished size of the basket is approximately 11″ in diameter and 5″ in height. Just need to prepare 2 craft materials and a few tools and you are all set to begin the crochet basket project.

MATERIALS

We used 1 coil of 50 feet ¼” Ace Manila Twisted Rope (75853) and partial ball of beige cotton yarn to crochet this rustic hemp basket. If you can’t find the exact rope to crochet, try to get something simiar, or you can twist a few strands narrower rope together to make up the size.

TOOLS

In this crochet basket pattern, we are using a 4mm crochet hook to crochet the cotton yarn that “tie” the rope together with some basic crochet stitches. A stitch marker will be handy to mark the first stitch of every round you go. At the end of the project, cut the yarn and rope with a pair of scissors then use a quick dry adhesive glue (UHU or Hog Glue) to the yarn to the basket. If you are using UHU glue, you might need a clothespin or clip to compress the rope and yarn until they are securely glued to the basket.

Do you happen to have a video of how to make this basket?

Hi there thanks for the pattern. I am wondering if I could make it taller and just continue crocheting more rows?

Thanks Sara

Sure, Sara, as long as the stitches are snug enough to hold the structure of the basket well.

Hey that's a great basket.. I've made a few.. but... having trouble with the rope and crochet sagging mostly at the bottom..and becoming bigger at the top. Also, how did you get so few crochet stitches around the rope? I have a many when I make the rope baskets, and I think it's contributing to the sagging and stretching of the rope and yarn.Any hints? Thank you kindly! Pat

First, the crochet yarn has to be a rigid type, like cotton, so that it can catch the rope well. Secondly, the tension has to be firm too. Hope these tips helped.

I am new to Crocheting so my problems are likely due to lack of experience, but I am having trouble with this pattern. Every time I finish a round, I am finding I have a gap between the end of my round and the first chain space in the next row. It means I have to reach over a gap to get to the next chain space. I have tried charting it out a number of times and I am always left with a blank gap at the end of each round that I have to reach over for the next stitch. The only way I started to seem to make more sense was it I added an uncounted chain stitch at the end of each row. But that doesn't seem right since that isn't what is listed in the pattern. Also, I am confused about the pattern itself. On Row 1, you say single crochet 8 times into the second chain from the hook, chain one, then place marker. That last chain doesn't seem to be counted in the stitch count, but chains are counted as stitches everywhere else. Why isn't it counted here?

Thanks for the feedback. I should have mentioned that the last ch1 at round 1 is not counted as a stitch, that's why it is still counted as 8 stitches on round 1. I just edited the pattern and sorry for the confusion.
