Oval Basket Pattern

Here is my own pattern for an oval basket with decorative top and optional strap. This works fantastically for holding your pegs or as with any basket 101 different uses with or without the strap 🙂

This pattern is written using US terms and worked in one piece from the bottom up
Sc = single crochet
Dc = double crochet
BLO = back loop only
Slst = slip stitch
2sc = 2 sc in same stitch/ increase
scX = sc in next X stitches
skx = skip x stitches
()x = repeat instruction in brackets x times
[x] = stitch total for row

In all above instructions X counts as any number eg 2dc, dc10, sk5.


Any yarn could be used for this project but I’d advise for a decent size and stability chunky or thicker. In the photos above the red is Aldi macrame yarn with a 6.5mm hook, this worked up fantastically. The purple is made with Aldi chunky yarn and a 6mm hook which also worked very well. You’ll also need scissors and either a large darning needle or a smaller hook for weaving in your ends.
