I'd really like to know if anyone here has a pattern for a crocheted twine basket?  I wanted to make some for storage, but the only pattern I've found so far is in a $20 book that I don't have the funds to purchase right now....and the basket is really too big for what i'm looking for...although it could be modified.  If anyone has just a basket pattern for a twine (or leather strap) crocheted basket, I would greatly appreciate it!!  Thanks so much!

this is rather bad but
you can always buy the book and photo copy the pattern than return it

or if its at michaels use the 40% off coupon they have in the ad
acmoores is the same way

i dont know what other stores honor the coupons though, i know joanne fabrics doesnt

Your local library might have what you're looking for. Thats where I get most of my patterns from when I can't find them online. Its also where I browse books I'm interested in buying. Just an Idea Smiley

I made some twine baskets for Xmas presents.  The pattern came from Simple Crochet by Erika Knight.  I found the book at the library.  If your local library doesn't have the book, they can usually get it through Interlibrary Loan.  Just ask a reference librarian and they can help you.   

The baskets were really simple to do.  Basically just five single crochet pieces.  All you really did was decide how tall you wanted  the basket and how long, then sc until you get the right dimensions.  Then sc a bottom piece with the same number of stitches as the bottom edges of the four sides and sew all the pieces together. 

The twine was kind of hard on the fingers after awhile, but other than that it was really easy.  I highly recommend the above book because it gives much clearer instructions than I have been able to.  Also, there is some finishing step that I'm not quite remembering.

Good luck!

Actually, your post made it rather easy for me...That gave me the gist of it, at least.  I'll definitely look for that book at my local library.  I have some other research to do there on Tuesday, so I'll add that to my list!!  Thanks so much, ladies!!!
