Crochet Easter Basket – Free Pattern and Instruction

Mini Crochet Basket Avyastore

Love the Easter crochet basket, got the inspiration from these baskets for this project.

This attractive basket is quick and easy to make and is a good bazaar or gift item. It can be made in a variety of colors.  Willing to try the tulip stitch, I have modified the stitch and tried to get the look.

The mini crochet basket is started with a center and extends upwards, i.e. working in spirals. The level of skills required are intermediate.
