These Hooty Owl Crochet Baskets are just what I've been looking for. My youngest daughter loves owls and these cute baskets will help her keep her stuff in one place. I'm thinking of making a larger one for her to put her laundry in. I'm looking forward to making all of these.. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet baskets pattern.

These baskets are just so cute. I am going to try to make them for charity. They would be great for families, unfortunately, living in shelters or alternative housing. It is portable but oh so cute.

This are totally cute and would be perfect for my kids rooms to store all of the toys that get scattered and never really have a specific home. I absolutely love owls, but I think these would be easy to change some for an angry birds fan, too.

These are not only cute, they are also functional. A soft yarn is not recommended for this project because it will not keep shape. Use a thick and course yarn or cord for best results. Use double strands for even better results. It also helps to use a smaller hook than your yarn calls for, and to keep your stitches nice and snug.

So these cutesy owl baskets are comprised of the body of the basket, then each of the body parts are constructed separately and sewn onto the basket. Some sewing skills required! It does say that the yarn is a super bulky type, so it should stand up on its own. A previous crafter posted that hers did not stand because the yarn is too soft.

I made one of the owls and was curious to know if the bags are supposed to stand alone like it shows in the picture. Mine doesn't. The yarn is too soft. Just wondering. It's cute, though!

I am going to make two of these. One for each of my grand kids rooms. They both like owls and maybe I can get them to put their toys away by seeing how fast they can "feed" the owl and fill him up. Thank you for a fun and easy pattern idea.

If I just make the large basket how many Platium color skeins would I need? And the blue skeins?
Apr 09, 2015
You can also use two strands of Worsted Weight (4) held together to get the same result. Red Heart from the 'Cheap-mart' of your choice would be affordable. If two strands doesn't quite make the gauge, try three, I have done this before and not been disappointed. Using several strands also gives you an opportunity to play with the colors in multiple ways.....perhaps allowing you to combine colors from your stash to get the color And texture that pleases you. I have combined many different yarn textures, colors, weights with wonderful results! Warning! Make sure they all have the same washing instructions Before You Combine Them!!! Good Luck!

I figured out that to make these two owl baskets would cost me about $120. Does anyone know where to get this yarn for less than $6.99 a ball?
Oct 20, 2014
You could try Bernat Roving (though it is a #5 chunky and that may alter the size a bit). You get about 120 yds per ball instead of the 49 yds in the macra-made. Wool Ease thick and quick is 100 yards and considered a true super bulky (#6) but at 6.99 it would at least cut the price in half.
