Morando Hanging Basket ~ A Free Crochet Pattern

Share this

There’s something about crocheted storage items that I love! (Maybe it the fact I can pack, carry, hide more yarn or projects in them.) Regardless of why, there’s just so many uses for bags, totes, nesting bowls, etc. Everyone can find a use for those items, which makes this a pattern a perfect project as well as stash buster! The Morando Hanging Basket Crochet Pattern can be used for those cleaning rags, toys, Easter eggs, and my personal favorite, little yarn skeins! This pattern offers multiple design options depending on variety of colors and how often they’re changed throughout the pattern. So let’s take a look…

Special Pattern Notes:

Beginning chain does not count as a stitch unless noted.

When working two rounds below, you can either work over the ch 2 or keep the ch 2 behind the stitches. Either way, keep consistent throughout the piece.

You’ll want to alternate three or more colors for round for a checkered look. Change color every 2 rounds for a horizontal wave. Alternating between 2 colors every round, you will have vertical stripes.
