Easy Bunny Basket Knitting Pattern- beginner friendly & knits up fast!
This bunny basket is perfect for holding treats or as Easter decor. It’s knit on circular needles without increases or decreases. Once you’re finished knitting, the bottom is closed off by running a length of yarn to gather and then pulling it tight. The ears are knit separately on single point needles and then sewn on. Finally, a fluffy faux fur pom pom makes it complete!

Yarn: Red Heart Grande in Aran (1 skein)
With the circular needles, cast on 36 sts. Knit in the round until pieces measures approximately 7 inches from the cast on edge. Bind off on a right side row.
For the ears (make 2):
Using the single point needles, cast on 2 sts. Working in stockinette stitch, increase 1 stitch at each end until you have 6 stitches. Work in stockinette stitch for 4 rows. Decrease 1 stitch at each end until 4 sts remain. Bind off.
Run a length of yarn around the bottom of the piece and pull to tighten. Tie and weave in ends.
Sew on ears.
The pom pom has a small loop. Thread a piece of yarn through the loop to secure the pom pom to the back.
