The Lucky Charm Easter Basket - Super Speedy, Squishy, & Easy

The Lucky Charm Easter Basket is the perfect spring project for beginner crocheters who know the basics. It includes the magic ring, single crochet, half double crochet, and slip stitch.

This Easter Basket features an Easter-rainbow-inspired stripe pattern. It is super speedy and works up in no time.

P.S Keep your eyes open for the rest of March's free patterns as they are all going to be a part of The Lucky Charm collection!


I used the following materials:

  • 6mm hook
  • Sweet Snuggles Lite in: lavender, baby green, daffodil, omphalodes, barely pink, and white
  • Stitch markers
  • Yarn needle
  • Scissors



R1: 10 sc in a magic ring

R2: 10 increases (20)

R3: (1 sc, inc) x 10 (30)

R4: (2 sc, inc) x 10 (40)

R5-7 (3 rows): 40 sc

I recommend steam blocking it at this point so that your base is flat and does not curl up. If it still tries to curl up into a bowl shape, your tension may be too tight and you may have to do your base with a larger hook.


R8: (3 hdc, inc) x 10 in the back loop only (50)

R9: 50 hdc in-between the stitches of the previous round. (See picture for reference) 

At this point, I like to hit with the steamer again. I press out the bottom of the basket with my hands while it dries so that it keeps its shape.

Change colour to yellow. Note that every hdc from here on is going to be placed in-between the stitches, not under only the "v" part of the stitch.

R10: 50 hdc

Change colour to green

R11: 50 hdc 

Change colour to blue

R12: 50 hdc 

Change colour to purple

R13: 50 hdc

Change colour to pink

R14: 50 hdc 

Change colour to purple

R15: 50 hdc

Change colour to blue

R16: 50 hdc

Change colour to green

R17: 50 hdc

Change colour to yellow

R18: 50 hdc

Change colour to pink

R19-20 (2 rows): 50 hdc

R21: Slip stitch in each stitch around and fasten off.

Weave in all your ends.


Handle (optional):

Chain 4 

In the second chain from your hook, half double crochet in each chain across (3). Chain 1 and turn your work. *3 hdc across. Chain 1, turn.*

Repeat * until the handle is as long as you wish. I did 35 rows in total. Fasten off and sew on the handle on each side of the basket, ensuring that the colour changes are centered between the handle so that it is at the back.


Tip: To add some stiffness to the basket, you can spray it with “spray starch” (that stuff used for ironing men’s dress shirts)!
