Easter Basket - Work in Progress

I am hard at work trying to help out the Easter Bunny by making some crocheted Easter baskets for him (her?) to fill. This is my first basket.  It still needs to be blocked a bit, but I thought I'd show it as it is now.

After eating all the Easter goodies, I thought my girls could use the baskets in their rooms to store lotions,  jewelry, or whatever they wish.

 The pattern came from the book "Learn to do Bavarian Crochet" by Jenny King. The basket came together quite easily, especially since I have been using an almost identical stitch pattern for my Wool-Eater blanket.

It is such a beautiful day here!  With the door to my deck open I can feel the breeze blowing and hear the birds calling to each other. I am yearning to get out in the garden, but I am in the middle of some spring cleaning and furniture rearranging - you know, the kind of job which looks worse before it gets better. I am definitely in the "looking worse" stage!


  1. Very pretty basket - great idea to keep them out all year instead of putting them away. :)

  2. Thanks! Now I need to make one more.

  3. Love the basket! I would love one of these.

  4. Thanks! I'm about to sit down and start number two. Trying to decide on colors.
