I was wanting at my Easter knitting styles the other working day, and I was reminded of this little Easter basket knitting sample that I remembered generating but I could not recall when or what website it was for.

I searched around for it and realized it was on About, but the page for it doesn’t exist any more (and it was in no way posted on Ravelry, my terrible), so I resolved I’d re-knit it and publish it all over again for people who might be in the marketplace for a wee basket.

About the Basket

This sweet very little knit basket is worked from the bottom up in the round, starting in stockinette stitch and doing the job up to a basketweave overall body. The take care of is I-wire labored from a couple of system stitches after the rest are sure off.

The pink bag is about 2.5 inches (6 cm) across the base and 3 inches (7.5 cm) tall with out cope with. I created the purple one particular a small bigger and the gauge is slightly distinctive, so it is extra like 3 inches (7.5 cm) throughout the bottom and 3.5 inches (9 cm) tall without the need of the cope with.
