Chunky Basket Free Crochet Pattern | Posh Pooch Designs


This Chunky Little Basket is made with
Red Heart Soft Essentials Yarn in Greyhound and Orchid.
And  a cute little Bunny Button on the Flower.
This yarn is perfect, because it is a Chunk (5) and 
holds the shape of the basket.
The Basket measures  about 8 inches across..
The basket portion is about 6 inches high.

There is 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.
This Basket is made From Tweed Stripes 
By Lion Brand - Limeade.
