Finger Crochet a Gorgeous Basket with Natural Rope

I have a new finger crochet pattern to announce, and the kit is now available in the shop. Meet the Rosalie Rope Basket! No tools are required for this one… just use your hands to crochet a beautiful, sturdy basket to stash all of your favorite little things. Beginning crocheters can follow the pattern and how-to video to make a gorgeous, modern piece of home decor.

Let’s talk about the rope. This 100% cotton, chunky fiber gives your basket a textural and modern look. What I love about working with this material is that it gives your project enough structure to stand up on its own. The 7/32" braided rope basket is also super durable. If you’ve never crocheted with rope before, you’re going to fall in love with this natural fiber. Its light and airy color reflects light beautifully. And if you prefer MORE color, this cotton rope can be dyed any color of the rainbow. Or try it in subtle neutrals like grey or brown.

This finger crochet basket is easy to make, and you can also customize the dimensions. If you want to make it taller, just crochet additional rows. Speaking of options, you can add short or long leather handles to this project for extra flair—just specify your preference when ordering the kit! Measuring 12" wide x 6" tall, this container holds more items than you would expect. I’m currently using it to carry all my linen yarn.

The Rosalie Rope Basket Kits and Pattern (with Video) are available now in my shop! The kit includes:

:: 75 yds of 100% cotton rope
:: Rosalie Rope Basket Pattern and Video

Optional Add-ons:
:: 7" Leather Handle (as in Chelsea Rope Basket)
:: 2 x 12" Leather Handles (as in Felted Woven Basket Kit)

I adore this simple rope basket, and can’t wait to release these kits out into the world! Imagine the gifting possibilities. I’d love to try filling this with homemade treats and gifting it to a favorite teacher. Or stashing some bath salts and loofahs inside to treat a family member or friend to the perfect gift. Whatever you fill it with, the basket itself makes a stunning handmade gift. Get your kit today!
