Details for the crochet picnic basket pattern

Create this cute mini picnic basket style bag for a fun and handy way to carry your packed lunch.
You will need DK/Light Worsted and Chunky/Bulky sized yarn for this project. Alternatively, you can use 2 strands of DK worked together instead of Chunky yarn. I have used acrylic yarn, but any type of washable yarn is suitable. A piece of cardboard covered in foil or plastic will be placed inside the base for sturdiness and to help even weight distribution. You may use a sandwich Tupperware box base measuring 15x15cm instead.

  • Yarn Weight: UK DK and Chunky/US Light Worsted and Bulky
  • Hook Size: 4mm and 5mm
  • Size: Finished basket measures approx. W15 x D15cm x H12cm closed or H18cm open excluding the handle​​

To crochet this lunch bag picnic basket, you will need

Brown DK yarn for the basket – under 300yds
Red and White Chunky/Bulky yarn for the blanket detail – under 70yds of each
1 button 20-25mm in diameter for the closure
Optional: 2 wooden buttons 20-25mm for the basket decoration
