I absolutely love knitting, and am always looking for a knitted Easter basket pattern. I mostly especially love design knitting patterns, and have decided to share them with you all! My patterns will always be free to you all, and they’ll always be easy to follow patterns. With Easter coming right around
the corner, I was inspired to do make Easter baskets! I had a couple of ideas in mind. I was really thinking of what to do for table settings and of things to add a little bit of cuteness and charm to. Then I though, let’s make Mini Easter Baskets! You can put these on your tables for decorations, write names on the eggs to create a personalized table setting, or you can make them and fill with treats to add to your Easter Tree. The best part is that these little basket take no time to make, you will only need to know on how to knit on double pointed needles. If you’re not too familiar in knitting on Double Pointed Needles (DPNS), then you can watch the video I attached. I really enjoy the simplicity on how the guy explains it and shows you a couple of tricks that I use to keep my knitting in the round going strong and secure. The video will be posted at the very bottom. Please enjoy, and keep a lookout for more Knitting Patterns and DIY projects.
