Herringbone Single Crochet Basket Free Pattern

Sharing is caring!

I have become that plant lady. Well, at least a plant lady in training. I feel like it's the latest trend and a pretty one. In fact, I love it so much that I've adopted ten new house plants over the last few months. Let's not talk about the ones that didn't survive lol. An extra fun part is that I can also use my craft skills to jazz up their containers a little. For example, I whipped up the Herringbone Single Crochet Basket free pattern and love how it looks with my plants in the home.

Are You a Plant Person?

I was also able to see a good friend and discovered she also developed the same passion! It was so fun to follow her around her home and see all of her plant babies. I have a new wish list of plants and also learned a tip. Did you know you can use old coffee grounds as a fertilizer? I had no clue.

Make A Herringbone Single Crochet Stitch Plant Cozy Instead

These Herringbone Crochet Baskets can also be a plant cozy by merely omitting the plant base. Not having the bottom can be helpful if your plant sits on a water tray. And don't be afraid to play with sizing.

And If You're Not a Plant Person ...

Of course, you don't have to be a plant person to make use of the herringbone single crochet stitch baskets. This pattern is very flexible to fit your needs. It's a cute storage basket for any room in the house thanks to the textured and softness it has. Use it to hold yarn, toys, and more.
