Chick Easter Basket

IMG_6624a

I decided that I needed to make an Easter basket for my Moonpie’s first Easter this year. I was trying to decide between a bunny and a chick, but the chick just seemed like more fun to me. So here is my chick Easter basket. This pattern is worked in both loops and should work for left or right handed crocheters.

Abbreviations:

ch: chain

sc: single crochet

sl st: slip stitch

inc: increase (2 single crochets in one loop)

dec: decrease (pull yarn through loop, pull yarn through second loop, yarn over and pull through all loops)

Materials needed (with affiliate links):

5.25 MM (I) crochet hook

Red Heart yarns in pale yellow, carrot and black

Yarn needle

Basket:

Using 2 strands of yellow yarn at once ch 3. Sl st to first ch to create circle. (Instead, you can perform the “magic circle” if you’d like.)

Row 1: ch 1, 10 sc inside of circle. Sl st to first sc, ch 1, turn.

Row 2: Inc, 1 sc, repeat around. Sl st to first sc, ch 1, turn.

Row 3: Inc, 2 sc, repeat around. Sl st to first sc, ch 1, turn.

Row 4: Inc, 3 sc, repeat around. Sl st to first sc, ch 1, turn.

Row 5: Inc, 4 sc, repeat around. Sl st to first sc, ch 1, turn.

Row 6: Inc, 5 sc, repeat around. Sl st to first sc, ch 1, turn.

Row 7: Inc, 6 sc, repeat around. Sl st to first sc, ch 1, turn.

Row 8: Inc, 7 sc, repeat around. Sl st to first sc, ch 1, turn.

Row 9: Inc, 8 sc, repeat around. Sl st to first sc, ch 1, turn.

Row 10:  Inc, 9 sc, repeat around. Sl st to first sc, ch 1, turn.

Row 11:  Inc, 10 sc, repeat around. Sl st to first sc, ch 1, turn.

Row 12: Dec, 10 sc, repeat around. Sl st to first sc, ch 1, turn.

*At this point your basket should curve up. You can flip it inside out if you like the way it looks better. You decide which is the outside and which is the inside.*

Tie off.
