Two Red Easter Baskets

I whipped up these two baskets while Thomas was sleeping, we might use them for Easter this year when my young nephews come to visit.

I used some fluffy craft yarn I got from Lincraft on special, and some plain red yarn for the larger basket. I didn’t follow a pattern for these, I just made them up using a 4mm hook.

My pattern for an Easter basket

2. 8 sc (UK dc) in loop, sl st
