I love Easter for two reasons: spring flowers, and chocolate. Let me add a third reason: dyeing eggs. There’s nothing you can’t accomplish with some vinegar and food coloring.

A couple weeks ago, when I was reviewing cotton spring yarns over on the LoveKnitting blog, I was struck by how perfect the Plymouth Fantasy Naturale was for a basket. It’s 100% cotton with a rope like texture that gives it the stability a basket needs to survive the challenges of a competitive egg hunt.

I’m feeling very inspired by this rainbow yarn today, and I think it wants to be made into an Easter basket! ?

Pattern:

To start, make a magic ring with 10 stitches. If you don’t know how to make a magic ring, you can chain 4 to make a ring, and then do 10 single crochet (UK double crochet) stitches into the ring.

Optional handle

If you want a handle for your basket (rather than the kind that just sits on the table), Carry on from the end of the last round by crocheting a single crochet into the next four stitches.

Chain one and turn to work these four stitches back and forth until the handle is as long as you want it to be, sew it to the other side, and weave in ends.
