Indian Star Basket design was inspired by Native American textile art. Using this pattern you can create basket, pillow or a pounch for your make-up, for example.

In order basket keeps its shape well, it’s recommended to line it with fabric. Old jeans will work perfect!

The pattern contains complete instructions how to complete a pillow throw.

The basket/pillow is made in Overlay Crochet technique. This easy to follow pattern (16 pages) is written for one size, but can be easily adjusted for any size. It contains step by step full written instructions in English using standard crochet abbreviations and US terms (stitch guide is given in the pattern). It also contains lots of pictures explaining all the tricky and difficult places.

Please, read more about this design HERE on my blog.

Crochet level: Intermediate (front post stitches)


  • Yarn in 4 colors. I used yarn “Bloom” by Scheepjes: shades 403, 410, 413, 419.
  • Crochet hook 4.5 mm (US7) or the size that will give an acceptable gauge.
  • Scissors and Tapestry needle to weave the ends in.
  • Zip for a pillow

Size: The size of the finished basket/pillow depends on the yarn and hook you use. My basket is approx. 82cm/32in in circumference - 25cm/10in wide across the bottom, and 21cm/8 ½ in high. The pilllow is approx. 40cm/16” large.
