Todays project is one for the Home. Aren’t these Crochet Nesting baskets SO cute? Ideal for gifts too! I for one would love to receive something hand made like this filled with goodies. I’ve made use of mine in various ways around the home, from holding my Beauty essentials, to my crochet hooks. I’ve even used one as a super pretty plant pot.
Today I shall be showing you how to create your own Crochet Nesting Baskets with an easy to follow tutorial. I shall be also walking you through the written pattern step-by-step, so if you want to improve your pattern reading skills, this is perfect for you!

The yarn I shall be using today is Lily Sugar ‘n Cream in the shade Potpourri. Lily Sugar ‘n Cream Original is a worsted weight yarn which comes in a 400g cone. It is made in Canada and is 100% USA Cotton. This particular pattern is created using 2 strand of yarn together which creates a sturdy basket. I love the quality of this yarn and I especially love the Pink, Purple and Teal flecks of colour my chosen shade Potpourri has to offer.

Unsure of the differences between UK and US terms? Need a refresher on how to do your stitches? In my ‘How to crochet: A handy reference guild’ EBook I help you with all of these terms and you can always have them to hand! You will also get exclusive access to free video instructions. You can find my EBook HERE.
The FREE pattern for these Crochet Nesting Baskets can be found HERE. I would highly recommend that you download and print out the pattern in order to follow along with the tutorial. The pattern is written in US terms and I will be working in UK terms. Please don’t let this put you off! It’s really handy to get to grips with both sets of terminology as it can help you out a lot in the future. I would suggest that you highlight any changes in terminology to help you through. I will also be pointing out the differences throughout the tutorial.
