Crocheted Rope Basket

When we were on vacation in Ruurlo, The Netherlands last week (how fast time flies when you're back to work, it seems like three months ago!) my daughters collected chestnuts, acorns, pinecones and such, as children do when fall comes. Normally it's roaming around the house in a plastic bag for a couple of week to be tossed away in the bin in the end, but this year, after my experimenting with plant pots crocheted from rope, I made a small basket for it, which is now standing by the front door, between the pumpkins and the heather.


Thank you very much, Laurie!


  1. Great way to display their fall treasures

  2. oh fun! I don't know how to crochet - would this be a good beginners project?

  3. oh and did you publish the pattern somewhere?

    1. It's a great beginners project, because it's just single crochet and increase. You start with six sc in a magic circle. Then increase six times in every round until the bottom is as large as your plant pot and then it's just sc all the time until it fits your plant pot.

  4. I love this idea and great job! Thank you for sharing on Merry Monday! Hope to see ya next week!

  5. What a great basket! love this look!

  6. What a great post. I would love for you to share it with us at Creatively Crafty Link Party #CCBG

  7. That looks sweet, a few drops of a spicy pot pourri oil would be nice too.

  8. Such a pretty basket! Love everything you have collected inside of it. Thank you so much for sharing at the Whimsical Wednesdays Link Party!

  9. Thanks for sharing at Reader Tip Tuesday. I can't wait to see what you have to share at this week's party. Have a great week - xo

  10. I love this sort of crochet basket, and yours even more so because of its stringy look. Thanks for joining in Ginx Woolly Linx this month.
