Corded Leather Nesting Baskets

SKILL LEVEL: ADVANCED BEGINNER

Materials

Notes

I used approximately 90 yards of 3mm Macrame Cord to create all 3 baskets but any Weight 6 yarn could easily be substituted.

Abbreviations (US Terms)

  • slst – Slip Stitch
  • blo – Back Loop Only

Dimensions

My baskets are approximately 3 inches tall, you can continue on with the repeated row to make your baskets as tall as you’d like, but this will change the yardage of macrame cord needed to complete your baskets.

Pattern

Join cord to your leather base using a slip stitch in any of the holes. You will be working with the outside of the basket facing you.

ROW 1

  • slst around leather base into each hole, ending by slst into the hole you joined your cord

*Do not join, you will now work in continuous rows.

ROW 2

  • slst into the blo of the first stitch of the previous row, continue to slst into the blo around

*Repeat Row 2 until your basket reaches desired height.

Finishing

When you’ve reached your desired height, fasten off and secure cord end, sew on the leather tag provided to hide your end.
