These sweet little Easter baskets are perfect for holding a treat, toys, 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 makes it complete!
These knit easter eggs are knit flat and they make a great stash-busting project! I knit these eggs using different weights of yarn- worsted weight yarn and #2 fine weight. For the fine-weight eggs, I knit using 2 strands of yarn at the same time. Since this pattern is pretty simple, you can customize it by adding more stripes or even designs if you want to get fancy. These knit eggs make great gifts to add to a kid’s Easter Basket.
Looking for something cute to spruce up your Easter decor? This cheerful yellow Knit Easter Chick Basket is easy and fun to make! It’s knit flat (entirely in Garter Stitch), so it’s perfect for beginners. The basket has a small opening so it’s perfect for holding chocolate eggs, other candy, or Easter eggs. This quick knit little chick would also make a great addition to a kid’s Easter Basket.

It’s created by knitting a square using the Stockingette (knit one side, purl the other) stitch. The bunny shape is made using a couple of cleverly placed seams.
This bonnet pattern is beginner-friendly and knits up fast. The bonnet is knit flat using the Garter stitch. The ears are knit separately and then sewn on. This bunny bonnet is perfect for Easter pictures, events, and family dinners.
