Hi again!
How was your week? I’m doing well, just designing and hanging out. 😀  I hope this week’s design will be another crowd pleaser… because who doesn’t love baskets? I’ve got them all over my house right now, with little odds and ends in them. I think one of these days I’m going to make a HUGE basket, one that fits a couple blankets in it. But those sorts of designs take a ton of time to make and I love quick, fun projects that take less than a day.
Either way, I hope you like this design and give it a try! Let me know in the comments if you like this pineapple or what sort of basket you’d like to see next!

There is a pdf available for purchase in my Ravelry shop for $.50, I hope you consider purchasing a pdf to help me continue to bring you patterns in the future.

Materials:

  • US G (4.00 mm) crochet hook
  • Worsted/ medium/ size #4 weight yarn
    • 1.8 oz. / 111 yards
    • I used Bernat Super Value
  • Yarn needle

Gauge:

  • 4″ = 16 scs x 16 rows

Terms/ stitches:

  • Magic circle
  • RS: right side (side that faces out)
  • Ch: chain
  • St: stitch
  • Slip st: slip stitch
  • Sc: single crochet

Notes:

  • This pattern is worked in the round, with a slip st into the first st from the last st.Ravelry link
  • The ch 1 at the beginning of the row does not count as a stitch.
  • Following the base, sc into the back loop only.
  • If you don’t work this pattern in the back loop only, it might end up leaning. You can block the finished item to make it lean less.
  • This pattern is worked from the bottom up
  • All of the stitches in this pattern are single crochets, because of this the sides portion (where all the color changes are) only tells you how many stitches to do in what color, this is what the number in the parentheses means.
  • Color A is dark blue, color B is yellow, and color C green.
  • The repeat on this is 16. If you want to make this basket larger, keep increasing the base as written here and make sure your final row has a stitch count that is divisible by 16.
  • Also check out this post about tapestry crochet from Moogly, it’s helpful.

Finished measurements:

  • Height: 5.75″ (sides), 6.5″ (handles pulled up)
  • Diameter: 7.25″
  • Base: 3.75″ in diameter

Sides:

Note:

  • Every row of the sides are worked into the back loop only.
  • Every stitch in the sides portion of the pattern is a single crochet, because of this the directions only tell you what color (ie: Color A, Color B, etc…) and the number in the parentheses then tells you how many single crochets to make.
  • Following the ch 1, the first st is worked into the same st as join.
