How adorable is this fox basket crochet pattern? I’m obsessed with this cute DIY storage solution. It’s so adorable for an eclectic living room or kids room. This free crochet pattern works up quickly but requires some intermediate skills to complete. Think about the possibilities! Using a different color for the top, this fox can turn into a hedgehog or a raccoon. You can even complete this crochet pattern in shades of brown and make yourself a bear basket! Our heads are spinning with ideas. If you have some advanced crochet skills, you can even make a whole set in different sizes. The download for this pattern only comes in one size, but if you’ve created this same basket in bigger or smaller sizes, let us know in the comments!

I love working in Lily’s Sugar’n Cream for projects like this because it’s the perfect yarn for home decor projects. It’s stiffer and a little sturdier than apparel yarn, so I always get great results when making dishtowels, coasters, baskets, and other crochet items to use around the house. This pattern can of course also be made up in your yarn of choice as long as it’s the same weight, but I highly recommend checking your gauge if you’re working in a different yarn. Actually, I highly recommend checking your gauge either way because, let’s face it, it’s really helpful in removing frustration down the line.
