Description

EGG BASKET

Colorful easter eggs or plain boiled eggs – in this basket they really stand out. Thanks to the unconventional design it‘s a real eyecatcher on every breakfast table. The egg-shaped basket has room for about 10 – 15 eggs (depending on their size).

Of course it looks great in different colors, too. Or with stripes, or gradient yarn... There are many possibilities. :) The decoration leaves room for lots of creativity, too: embroidery, sewn-on buttons, bows etc. You can also leave it completely plain.

All steps are explained in detail in words and pictures, so this pattern is suitable for (practiced) beginners as well. This pattern contains 7 pages of crochet instructions and 12 pages of detailed step-by-step instructions.

Used techniques (US crochet terms): magic ring, slip stitch, single crochet, increases and (invisible) decreases, crocheting in front loops and back loops – explained. The figures are crocheted in continuous rounds/spirals.

The basket gets to be 15 x 15 cm tall (with 3.0 mm hook and DK yarn like Puppets Lyric 8/8 or 2 strands of Sport yarn like Catania Originals).

You need it smaller or bigger? No problem! Simply use lighter or heavier yarn (and a hook 1 or 2 sizes smaller than recommended for your chosen type of yarn).

MATERIAL For the basket: 140 g White For embroidery: 3 g Green, 2 g Orange, 2 g Yellow, 1 g Red
