Item details

This pattern shows you how to knit a basket with thick cotton rope, where to get the materials, and how to alter the dimensions to make baskets in different sizes and shapes. The large basket is approximately 13 inches in diameter and 12 inches tall.

The pattern comes as a PDF file, which should become available to download as soon as your payment clears.

This is not the actual knit basket! If you are interested in purchasing a finished knit basket, check out my other listings for finished items.

Difficulty: Easy. The pattern uses a basic garter stitch. And because the rope is so thick, you only need a few stitches per row!

Cost: The rope required to knit a large basket costs around $35. The size 36 circular knitting needle can cost anywhere from $10-$25. Of course you can always use the pattern as a starting point and substitute your own materials.

This pattern is now available as a kit!

This is an easy and fun project!!! I made mine out of water skiing rope (even though the pattern said to use cotton) - it is really cute and will be great for dog toys out on the deck! i even did it a little bigger than the large (for more toys), so it's a little floppy - I would stick to the 300'! Easy pattern though! Although, (unrelated to the pattern) it is a little awkward knitting with rope... casting on was a bit of a challenge, and it gets a little heavy.

OMG I love this basket. My only lament is that I made it a little while ago and still can't decide what to store in it! But I will find something, for now it looks beautiful sitting on my bedroom floor. I plan to make more in the future, even as gifts. I struggled with the tips for gluing cut ends of the rope together, that didn't really work for me. However I was able to hide those pieces pretty well on the basket. Very happy with it, and it was so fun to make!
