A tisket a tasket a easter basket

Posted on: March 31, 2012


Hi all I hope everone is having a great weekend! I have been pretty focused on making mini Easter Baskets for my babies at work. I originally wanted to loom knit them but had difficulty finding the right pattern. I could have used the Jelly Bean basket from Loomlore but I made several of them a couple of years ago and wanted something a bit quicker to make so I turned to crochet first I tried this pattern mini easter basket I discovered that I can no longer crochet using plastic bags, makes my hands hurt too much, so than I tried it again ( it is the little pink basket in the backgound of the above picture) I used 2strands of ww yarn but it wasn’t quite what I wanted so I went back to searching and found this cute little pattern mini basket and it is perfect each little basket takes about 20 minutes to make leaving me time to make the marshmellow bunnies the bunnies take a bit longer to make but I love them they are so cute. Last weekend I found a link for a knit basket that I thought I would convert to the loom, but so far have not had time to try it. I was going to post a link for it but can’t find the site right now maybe I will remember later what I did with it. At some point I really need to get my links better organized, but not today it is back to bunnies nd baskets for me. Have a great weekend.

Those are so adorable and will be wonderful Easter gifts. Happy Easter!

Cindy thank you very much, they have been alot of fun to make. I was very disappointed to find that I would not be able to use your cute basket pattern. Many years ago I made my father in law a hat out of plastic bags and it turned out great, I was quite suprised to learn that it hurt to crochet with the plastic now. I really like your site.

Cindy forgot to say Happy Easter to you also.

Your bunnies and baskets are darling, Angel! Love them πŸ™‚
