Crochet Basket for Easter

This basket was crocheted with jute which gives it a lot of stability. Dark lilac just seemed like a nice Easter color but any other color would also work well. The jute is not easy to work with as it is stiff and tends to hurt the fingers while crocheting so after you are finished with one basket, you may wish to take a break first, if you want to make more of these.

 

 

Crochet Easter Basket

For this project you will need:

- a ball of twine or jute (at least 30 meters in length) in color of choice - here the color purple was chosen
- crochet hook #3 metric or about a size D for the USA

- ribbon to embellish the basket when finished
