"I love the idea of crocheting Easter Baskets for an Easter Egg Hunt, but obviously, yarn can be a bit flimsy. To remedy this, I used 2 strands together, which strengthened and stiffened the basket. I used a standard basketweave stitch and worked in the round. It was extremely quick and easy to make. - The pattern is written in both UK and US terms. The US terms are in [parenthesis]. - You need to work in the round, starting with a magic ring. I hope this brings you creative joy and inspiration."

NotesIn order to work 2 strands together, you can use each end of the 100g ball of yarn, OR, wind 2 separate balls from the 100g ball.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I really like this little quick and simple Easter basket. The season has since past but I can get started or at least save the pattern for next year. Thanks for the link to the working in the round and the magic ring method video. I want to make the simple bag too, lol. Not a very big basket but just right for small hands. Thanks again.

A basket weave basket, genius!

Does it say anywhere in the pattern, to maybe add a plastic needlepoint layer, cut to fit on the bottom, for extra resiliency? I don't even know what they are called, but it is a piece of plastic usually in a square, that has holes all over it. Now, I don't have a child who is young enough to use this for an egg hunt, but it would work nicely on the table centerpiece!

This is just adorable! I love the basket weave detail and that undulating handle is so unique. My Army vet son used to send us German Kinder Eggs when he was stationed overseas, so this little project brought back some memories for me. Many thanks for that! The designer has kindly offered a free .pdf download through Ravelry and an additional site, too.
