Easy Easter Basket Crochet Pattern

Celebrate Easter in style with this fun Easter basket crochet pattern! This adorable basket is perfect for adding a personal touch to your Easter celebrations and can be used as extra storage once Easter is over.

About the Pattern

This Easter basket crochet pattern is beginner friendly. It uses basic stitches with an easy decorative trim.

The pattern is worked by holding 2 strands of worsted weight yarn together to give it more structure.

Add some simple facial features to up the cute factor and you have yourself a fun Easter basket to fill with goodies.

If you’re looking to simplify it further, leave off the face for a great basic basket pattern that would look amazing in all the colours.

Adjusting the Size

The basket is on the smaller side but the pattern is easily adjustable – adding more increase rounds will give you a wider basket while adding more single crochet rounds will give you extra height.


I used 4 Seasons Spot Saver USA Style for my basket which you can get at Spotlight if you’re from Australia or New Zealand, otherwise any worsted weight yarn should work.

Since we’re using 2 strands held together, you can use 2 separate skeins of yarn or you can do what I did and use a single skein but pull yarn from both the inside and the outside.

I’ve included how much yarn you need in the materials list. However, you may need more or less depending on your chosen yarn and your own personal tension.

Finished Size

The finished Easter basket measures approximately 4.25″ (11cm) tall. Size may vary depending on tension and materials used.


Gauge is not important in this pattern. Your basket may turn out bigger or smaller depending on the yarn used and your own personal tension. Use the measurement below as a guide and adjust hook size as necessary.

Gauge = 4.25″ (11cm) after R7.


  • The basket is worked in a continuous spiral starting with a magic ring unless otherwise specified. Mark the first stitch of each round with a removable stitch marker.
  • You will be using 2 strands of yarn held together for the basket.
  • The cheeks are made with only a single strand of yarn and a smaller hook size.

R23: [Sl st, ch 1] x56

Cheeks (3.5mm hook, make 2, pink)

R1: 6 sc in magic ring (6)

Fasten off invisibly leaving a long tail for sewing.


  • Using orange yarn, sew the beak between R15 and R16. Try and layer your sts so that they sit next to each other and sew over it as many times as you like until you get your desired look (I stitched over mine about 8-10 times).
  • Using black 4 ply yarn or black embroidery floss, embroider the eyes over R17 approximately 1 st away from the beak on either side. You can embroider them however you like but I chose to do a simple triangle shape with a couple of eyelashes. I always find it helpful to mark out the eyes with pins first.
  • Sew the cheeks just below the outer corner of each eye over R15 and R16.
  • Using 2 strands of embroidery floss, add the finishing touch to the beak by stitching a line across the centre.
