Twine Garden Harvest Crochet Pattern

Happy May Crafties! It is gardening season at last and I've been super excited since the end of last season to start mine up again. Last year was full of trial and error and I wanted to find an

inexpensive way to personalize my gardening experience. That lead to me buying a bit of twine and sitting in my studio at late hours to make my own little gardening hod...thingy lol.


One of my favorite things about this basket is that it's proven to be quite durable, which is important if you're going to be using it for your precious vegetables and flowers. Another awesome feature is that, this was relatively cheap to make! With prices increasing as they are, it's really hard to find a decent basket or hod that is affordable. So, in the true spirit of "I can make that myself", here were are!




I've finally fished through the abyss that is my written pattern folder to introduce this pattern I wrote up in 2021. It's a simple make but, I hope that it brings you as much joy and usefulness as it has for me.

Pattern


Ch 18


Round 1: Hdc in 2nd ch from hook. Make 2 more hdc into the same ch. Make 1 hdc into each ch to the end, then make a total of 6 hdc into the last ch. Now going up the other side of the ch, work 1 hdc into each. Hdc 3 into the final ch and close with a sl st.


Round 2: Ch 2, hdc in base of ch 2, *make 2 hdc in the next st] x2. Make 1 hdc in the next 18 sts. * Make 2 hdc in the next st] x3. Hdc into the next 17 sts, *make 2 hdc in the next st] x2. Close row with a sl st in the top of the ch 2.


Round 3: Ch 2, *hdc in the next st, 2 hdc in the next st] x3. Hdc in the next 17 sts, * make 2 hdc in the next st, 1 hdc in the next st] x4. Hdc in the next 16 sts, 2 hdc into the next st, 1 hdc into the next. Close the row with a sl st in the top of the ch 2.


Round 4: Ch 3, dc into the next st, * dc 2 in the next st, dc 1 in the next 2 sts] x3. Dc into the next 15 sts, *dc in the next 2 sts, make 2 dc into the next st] x4. Dc into the next 17 sts, dc into the next sts, dc 2 in the last st. Close row with a sl st in the top of the ch 3.



Round 5: Ch 3, dc into the next 2 sts, make 2 dc into the next. * Dc into the next 3 sts, make 2 dc into the next st ] x 2, dc into the next 3 sts. Dc 1 into the next 13 sts. *Dc 1 into the next 3 sts, make 2 dc into the next st.] x4 (you should end with making 1 dc in 3 sts. Dc into the next 15 sts. Dc into the next 3 sts, make 2 dc into the next. Close the row with a sl st in the top of the ch 3.


Round 6: Ch 3, dc 1 into the next 3 sts * dc 2 in the next st, make 1 dc into the next 4 sts.] x3 Dc into the next 12 sts, *dc 2 into the next st, make 1 dc into the next 4 sts] x4. Dc 1 in each of the next 15 sts, dc 1 in the next 4 sts, dc 2 into the next st, dc into the last st and close the round with a sl st in the top of the ch 3.


The length of the bottom of your basket totally depends on what you're growing/planning to harvest from your garden. For my purposes, the bottom only needed to be about 12 inches. After round 6, it measured 12" exactly. So expand for as many rows as you see fit. Just remember to account for how much twine you'll need.


Round 7: Ch 2, hdc in each st around and close the row with a sl st in the top of the ch 2.


Round 8 - 12: Ch 1, sc into each st around and close row with a sl st into the top of the 1st sc of the round.


For a deeper basket, continue repeating Round 8 beyond round 12.



Round 13: Ch 2, hdc into the base of the ch 2. *Make 1 hdc ino the next st, make 2 hdc into the next st] x6, end making 1 hdc in the next st. Sc 1 in the next 23 sts. * Make 1 hdc into the next, make 2 hdc into the next st] x12, end making 1 hdc in the next st. Sc in the next 18 sts. * Make 1 hdc into the next st, make 2 hdc into the next st] x 5 end with 1 hdc in the last st. Close the row with a sl st into the top of the ch 2.


Round 14: Ch 1, sc into the base of th ch 1, sc in each stitch around. Close row with a sl st into the top of the first sc.


Round 15: Ch 1, reverse sc in each st around. Close row with a sl st.


The Straps


Make two chains as long as you'd like for your basket and then sew the chain to the body of the

basket.

If you worked with a thinner twine, make the same length of chain 6 times. Then braid together three of the chains together per strap. If you go this route, be sure to knot the braids on both ends so the strap does not unravel.
