Crochet Rope Baskets
I love statement piece accessories, so when Ana Luisa Jewelry shared a few of their gorgeous, gold items: Betty Earrings, Alexa Necklace, and Janet Ring, I was thrilled to create something display them in.
These crochet rope baskets are made quickly using single crochet wrapped around plain, ol’ rope. I love the juxtaposition of the hand-dyed wool and unbleached cotton against the cool, geometric metal when used to display jewelry.
Right now you can get $15 off any Ana Luisa Jewelry by going here. Use code Vickie15 at checkout.
Then, watch the tutorial below and get started. By the time your new favorite accessories arrive, you’ll have cute containers to keep them in. Enjoy!
Crochet Rope Basket Directions
Cotton rope (Approx 25 yds will make both baskets)
Small amount sock-weight (DK would work, too) yarn
US G/4mm hook (or appropriate size for yarn weight)
Sharp tapestry needle
Small 5″ x 3 1/2″ (Large 7 1/2″ x 5 1/2″)
Ch 8 (18).
Round 1: Holding rope parallel to the chain, with about 1″/2.5 cm of rope standing taller than yarn chain, sc into the 2nd ch from hook AND around rope; sc around rope and in every ch to end (after a few stitches worked, snip excess rope so it’s now at the same level as crochet — see above video for reference), bend rope so that it comes back against itself (like an oval spiral), 2sc around rope and in SAME st as the last st worked (3sc total in last st); *sc around rope and into the bottom of the next st; rep from * to last st, 3 sc in last st.
Round 2: Continuing to spiral the rope, [sc around rope in next st and to one end of the piece; 3 sc in center st of one end] TWICE.
Repeat Round 2 until the basket base measures 5″(7 1/2″) long.
Next Round: Continuing to spiral the rope, sc around rope in next st and every st around (without increasing at either end.)
Repeat the last round until basket 1 (3) times more.
Secure rope end by sc into 1 row below, 3 times.
Fasten off; cut rope.
Weave in ends.
Use sharp tapestry needle and yarn tail to further secure rope end into place.
