HDSS Fall Basket

Hey there! I recently discovered a crochet stitch called the Half Double Slip Stitch. So, to practice with it, I designed a cute little fall basket! I really like this stitch, and it adds a cool dimension to your work. You might even find me incorporating it in some sweaters!

This little fall basket is super cute. I used #6 (super bulky) yarn and a 9mm hook. It not only works up super fast, but if you use some cute fall colored yarn, you can use it for an apple basket or to keep your fall wip’s in! You can also try t-shirt yarn and it’ll be a bit more sturdy!

Here’s what you need:

#6 yarn – about 100 yards total; I used two different colors, but you can do it all with one, or with scrap yarn and make a rainbow!

9mm hook – gauge not important

Pattern written in US terminology

Finished Measurements: 12” x 4” x 4”


Ch: Chain

HDSS: Half Double Slip Stitch (With one loop on the hook, YO, insert hook into stitch. YO, pull thru all loops, leaving one loop on the hook.)

BLO: Back Loop Only

Sts: StitchesFO: Finish Off

This basket is made in the round, and you will NOT be joining after each round, only at the color change.  You may want to keep a stitch marker to mark the beginning of each round.  Be sure to move it each round.

So, without further ado, the HDSS Fall Basket:
