Chunky Basket Free Crochet Pattern | Posh Pooch Designs

There nothing cuter then a fun 
Easter basket with a Bunny inside.
The Bunny I made last year From This Pattern
I used Worsted Weight yarn and  H hook,
 so my bunny is a little bit bigger then hers.
The pattern is really easy to Follow.
And She Fits perfectly in my Chunky Basket.
The Basket measures  about 6 inches across..
The basket portion is about 4 inches high.

it works up great for this basket, because it is
 nice and chunky and keeps it's shape.
