This crochet planter basket pattern is a simple project that can quickly add some style to your home decor. It works up really fast in a size 5 chunky yarn and fits nicely around a standard 6″ pot.

Though I styled this planter basket for Christmas, it would really work during any season. You can use it as a quick dress-up for seasonal items like the tree in the photo, a poinsettia, or mums in the fall. Or, you could use it all year long for your permanent house plants.

The pattern is easy enough to whip up more than one and get all your plants covered, or even use a basket or two for other storage. It is a nice size and stands up well by itself with this thick yarn.

Materials:
-135 yards Size 5/ Bulky Yarn (I used 135 yards/ 124 grams of Premier Serenity Chunky yarn in Pristine, which was a little more than one skein )
–US N/15/10.00 mm Crochet Hook
–Yarn Needle
–Scissors

Sizing:
7” tall.
The base is technically 6 ½” wide, but with the “slouchiness” of the sides, the width of the basket is more like 7-8”. This basket fits loosely around a 6” flower pot, leaving about a 3/4” gap around all edges.

Stitches Used:
(ch) chain
(sl st) slip stitch
(sc) single crochet
(wc) waistcoat stitch (instructions in pattern)
(rsc) reverse single crochet (instructions in pattern)
