Octopus Crochet Basket Tutorial

The Octopus Crochet Basket limited-time free period has ended.

Never miss out on limited time free pattern releases by following me now.

The Octopus Crochet Basket is a fun way to organize your space. The spacious basket would look great in an under the sea nursery. You can customize the color of the basket to match the decor.

The basket measures 28″ around and 10″ tall and holds a ton of stuff.

Great in a nautical-themed room.

The Yarn

I used Bernat Velvet yarn in Softened Blue for the basket and Bernat Baby Velvet yarn in Emerald for the pupils of the eyes. This yarn is one of my new favorites. The colors are so beautiful and it makes the basket super sturdy.

This yarn is so soft!

Leaving off the eyes gives it a modern look that looks great in minimal homes.

Would look great in a minimal nursery.

You will be using a 5mm [US-H] crochet hook. I love and used Clover Amour Crochet Hooks for this pattern.

Video Tutorial

The video tutorial below will walk you through making the eyes for the basket, as well as attaching them to the basket.
