The Teton Crochet Basket is a flexible pattern that can be created in many sizes. I’m going to walk you through a few sizes, but with the easy stitch repeat, feel free to customize and adjust. And the best part is this crochet pattern comes with a video tutorial.
This crochet basket pattern is worked from bottom-up and in the round.
If you don’t want to use this as a plant cover, going down a hook size can help the basket be firmer and it will stand up better.
