Grab your free copy of this cute heart basket crochet pattern via the link below! Although it would make a great Valentine’s Day gift if done in red, pink, or variegated yarn in different shades of reds, pinks, and whites, it would also come out great in pretty much other color you could decide to use also!
It’s impossible to provide you with the exact measurements of a finished basket. You can basically use any size hook and any size yarn or thread for this project.
The pattern does, however, suggest a Wendy Supreme Cotton Chunky yarn with a 5.5 mm hook, which results in a basket that is approximately 5-1/2 inches wide x 4 inches high with a depth of about 1-1/2 inches.
For this project, you will need to keep your stitches somewhat snug/tight to help the basket be more firm when it is finished. One way to help you do this is to go down a hook size if needed, to lessen the gaps between stitches, which will result in a more “dense” finished basket.
The finished basket is very cute and works great for holding all types of small items that you or your recipient can dream up to fill it with!
