With Easter just a few days away, I thought a crochet Easter basket with crochet Easter eggs would a great pattern to design and share with you all.  I know it's a tough time for everyone and shopping for Easter decorations and presents isn't possible right now. Don't stress about it! You can quickly and easily whip up some of these fun Easter baskets for your kiddos. You can even use some green yarn in place of the grass. The basket and the eggs are worked using single crochet stitches in the round from the bottom up. Both patterns work up very quickly which makes them perfect for beginner crocheters.

Basket: 8 rows and 7 stitches= 2 inches
Eggs: 6 rows and 7 stitches= 1 inch

Basket
Height: 3.5 inches to brim & 10.5 inches to top of handle
Diameter: 7.75 inches

Eggs
Height: 2.5 inches
Diameter: 1.5 inches

  • you are crocheting in the round
  • basket is worked from the bottom up
  • the ch at the beginning of each round never counts as your first stitch
  • basket: you are working with two strands of yarn held together
