Birch Bark Basket


Tamara Kelly


Feeling inspired by nature? I was when I came up with the Birch Bark Basket! This easy crochet pattern is almost more of a technique and tutorial – you can crochet big baskets, small baskets, gift baskets… You get the idea! And each one will have you thinking of a walk in the woods.

This crochet basket pattern as written is pretty big – I find it to be a great storage basket for my other current yarn project! And better looking than plastic baskets too. At about 43″ around, it holds a lot! But this pattern is super easy to downsize. Just crochet the base to the dimensions you desire and work the sides using the technique outlined below.

Materials List

  • US – I, 5.5mm hook
  • 900-1000 yds Worsted or Aran weight yarn, as follows: Color A – 826 yds (Caron One Pound in Lace shown); Color B – 100 yds (Caron One Pound in Espresso shown)
  • 1 stitch marker


Two strands of Color A are held together and worked over a single strand of Color B.
