Hopscotch Easter Baskets
New Crochet Pattern!
It’s finally spring and I’m totally jazzed… How about you? I love the season of new life and pretty flowers, and finally wanting to run around outside because, it’s warm, ykwim! And of course there’s the fun of Easter too! My kids favorite part is the egg hunt and so I just had to create the perfect Easter Baskets for the hunt of course! This is a quick and fun pattern, and easy to master, so you can make all the baskets you need for your favorite little bunnies too! I hope y’all love this new pattern as much as I do! 🙂
Easter Baskets to Crochet
I’m a pretty big fan of Crochet Baskets, how about you? They are such fun to make, and so useful too! My first ever basket design was part of my Farmers Market Veggies pattern – gotta have somewhere to store all those veggies, right? Later on we had some fun with color, y’all know how much I love colorwork and baskets are such a great palette for color play. So you can decorate and store your favorites in the Hometown Holiday Baskets all winter long. You can make the Buffalo Plaid Baskets in any color you like, to match your decor or the season you’re in! Or play with all the colors and make the Pop of Color Basket where you can use up your scrap yarn or choose colors to match any room of the house. If you’re more of a hanging basket kind of crocheter, then you will love the Farmhouse Hanging Basket, which is ideal for showing off your fave plant or a bouquet of flowers – this one is a favorite gift for Mother’s Day! But I couldn’t stop there! I’ve been searching for a quick to make, sturdy Easter basket for my kids because those straw baskets just fall apart. So what’s the solution, but to design my own of course, and here we are. Read on to learn more about the latest Hopscotch Easter basket pattern too!

Easy Easter Crochet Project
The Hopscotch Easter Basket Pattern is so quick and fun to make y’all! I’m almost finished making one for each of my kids, on top of the samples I made, they’re quick! The baskets are pretty simple because you work in the round all the way and then just create the handle in rows, with very minimal sewing! The pattern does use a couple of intermediate stitches, but they are really so easy to learn and master! You can sit down and complete a basket in 1-2 evenings, so you can easily make a few of these babies before Easter. I love the look you can get using 2 strands of worsted held together. Some of my testers got such amazing results with their color choices, and you can really have some fun playing with colors.
With 3 sizes to choose from too, you can make these as home decor, for your kids to hunt for eggs, to give as gifts, or as a gift basket! You could also leave off the handle and make the basket to hold napkins, linens, etc. even as a pretty way to hold spare rolls of toilet paper. I’m planning to use my mini baskets to store treats for the kiddos.
This is 100% a Netflix and chill type of project so whether you watch your fave movie on Netflix or Prime Video, or pick a new, bingeable audiobook, while working on your crochet shoulder bag! I just started listening to The Time of Contempt – The Witcher Book #4 on Audible and I highly recommend it and I’m really enjoying the entire series! Plus when you’re done reading you can watch the series on Netflix. as much as I love mine! 💜
Crochet an Easter Basket!
This mini Easter Basket crochet pattern is perfect for an intermediate crocheter or a confident advanced beginner who is ready to master a few intermediate stitches! I have included photo tutorials for adding the handle and detailed photos and instructions for how to crochet the more advanced stitches. You will be able to confidently say you KNOW how to crochet an Easter Basket once you’ve completed the pattern!
Here’s what you need to get started: 2 balls (you hold 2 strands together) total 150-350 yards of Red Heart Super Saver Ombrés or any Worsted/Aran Weight 4 Yarn of your choice. You will also need a J/10 6.0 mm crochet hook. ← I highly recommend this gorgeous beauty! My 100% go to hooks are Furls Streamline Resin Hooks, I loved using mine to create this sturdy crochet Easter Basket!
Below are the yarns I used to create my samples! For this project I used RHSS Ombrés in Jazzy Ombré, Scuba Ombré, and Coral Ombré paired with White, Spearmint Ombré paired with Minty, and True Blue Ombré paired with Light Blue and I’m honestly not sure which I like best!! 😍 I think you will have a LOT of fun choosing your colors for this project, whether you go for a high contrast pair or a more subtle blend. These baskets also look amazing in RHSS Stripes!! I have one going in Retro Stripes and White and it’s truly TDF but not quite ready for it’s close up yet.
