Retool: Rag Basket / Rug Crochet Pattern

[nivoslider id=”3748″]

Fabric Crochet Workshop PDF Pattern

In this Workshop:
The Pattern: Simple Basket with Handles
Step by Step Detailed Instructions, complete with photos
The Method: Breakdown of the crochet components
Cutting continuous fabric strips: detailed instructions

Crocheting fabric instead of yarn opens up all kinds of design possibilities not found with traditional yarn. Like polka dots. It’s a skill every Maker should have.

Crochet is exceedingly fast. Use fat strips of fabric and a giant hook and you can whip out a basket in an hour or two.

This is so easy. You need not know how to crochet to follow these simple instructions. Once you’ve made the basket from the pattern below, you’ll have mastered all of the components necessary to design your own round shaped object – be it a basket of any size, a chair pad, potholder, or rug.

If you’ve never crocheted before, you may need to supplement this pattern with a quick video tutorial of how to hold the yarn, use the hook, and do Single Crochet. Don’t let that stop you – great video tutorials of these basics abound! All other techniques are spelled out fairly well within the following detailed instructions.
