There are many reasons you might want to crochet a basket. Storage baskets are popular right now, and baskets make great catch-all containers for yarns or other craft supplies. You could make gift baskets for different holidays and occasions: Christmas gift baskets, Easter baskets, Halloween candy baskets, etc.

Here are some ideas for crocheting different baskets using a variety of different techniques. Links to the free crochet patterns are included.
