Chunky Basket Free Crochet Pattern | Posh Pooch Designs

Chunky Basket Free Crochet Pattern 
By Sara Sach of Posh Pooch Designs

The Chunky Little Basket is made with
Red Heart Soft Essentials Yarn Cream, teal, orchid and pink.

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.
