Pattern - Paper Basket

So if you fancy crocheting with something different or would like a quick and easy project then have a go at these cute little paper yarn baskets. Ideal for keeping your craft projects in if you are 'on the go' or even for a little one to use a handbag!


Hook - 8mm

Yarn - Rico Paper Yarn
Yarn A - Variegated (Yarn 15)
Yarn B - Blue (Yarn 9)








This pattern will be worked in the amigurumi style, working continually round with no requirement to start a new round each time. Recommend you use a stitch marker in the last stitch of each round and move up as you go.

With yarn A make a magic ring and work first round into ring (alternatively you can make 2 chain and then work into the 2nd chain - you may find this method preferable with paper yarn)

Round 1 - 1 ch (does not count as st), 7 dc into ring. 
Round 2 - 2 dc in each st (14 sts)
Round 3 - 2 dc in next st, 1 dc in next st, repeat to end (21 sts)
Round 4 - 2 dc in next st, 1 dc in next 2 sts, repeat to end (28 sts)
Round 5 - 2 dc in next st, 1 dc in next 3 sts, repeat to end (35 sts)
Round 6 - 2 dc in next st, 1 dc in next 4 sts, repeat to end (42 sts)
Round 7 - 2 dc in next st, 1 dc in next 5 sts, repeat to end (49 sts)
Round 8 - 2 dc in next st, 1 dc in next 6 sts, repeat to end (56 sts)
Round 9 - 1 dc in each st to end (56 sts)


Round 10 - Working in the back loops of the previous round, 1 dctog, 1 dc in next 6 sts, repeat to end (49 sts)
Round 11 - 1 dc in each st to end (49 sts)
Round 12 - 1 dctog, 1 dc in next 5 sts, repeat to end (42 sts)
Rounds 13 to 18 - 1 dc in each st to end (42 sts)
Change to Yarn B
Rounds 19 to 23 - 1 dc in each st to end (42 sts)
Round 24 - *10 ch, skip 10 sts, 1 dc in each of next 11 sts*, repeat from * to * (22 sts)
Round 25 - *10 dc in 10 ch sp, 1 dc in each of next 11 sts*, repeat from * to * (42 sts)
Round 26 - 1 dc in each st to end, join with a sl st in next st.
Fasten off and sew in ends

Finishing - To create a neat finish, using a yarn needle, thread Yarn B and work a whip stitch around the top sts of the basket.
