Only a few days left until Easter, and I suddenly realized that I had not yet made Easter decorations.
An unfailing attribute of the holiday is Easter eggs, they are a symbol of new life and rebirth. But where to put Easter eggs? Of course we need a basket! Or even a few small baskets for each egg!
So today I suggest you to crochet mini Easter egg baskets. They are very cute and will be a great gift for friends and family.
- Acrilic yarn (100 g / 180 m)
- 4 mm crochet hook
Measurement: Easter egg basket is approx. 2.3 inches diameter and 2.5 inches height.
Abbreviations Used (In American Terms)
sc = single crochet
ps = puff stitch
sl st = slip stitch
How to crochet a Easter egg basket:
Work in continuous rounds. Using a stitch marker, so you know where one row ends and another begins. I use a small piece of brown color yarn.
