Square woven basket set scroll down for a free crochet free pattern.

After I released the round woven basket set pattern I’ve got so many inquiries about the square shape baskets. Based on the love I’ve got from so many of you for the round baskets pattern I didn’t think twice and created the square basket set.

I used the same poly crochet cords in a square woven basket set pattern as in a round woven basket set but in vanilla color. Since I wanted square baskets to be similar to it’s older sibling I went with the same stitch combo, waistcoat stitch and single crochet back loop. And I created kits with wooden lids included. Yes, the square woven basket set has wooden lids too! Both sets are proudly displayed in my home and used as cute storage baskets.

Kits include 3 poly crochet cord bobbins and 3 wooden lids necessary for the entire set. And when you purchase a kit the included PDF pattern is free!
