  1. This is adorable. I thought I had already commented on this but do not see it. What I like is that it is a perfect size for a few jelly beans, a Hershey's Miniature, and a marshmallow bunny. AND, it is SO easy to do. I can see myself also doing these during the year in appropriate colors for other holidays. They's make great "favor" baskets, too.

    I am blogging about your website tonight. I'll come back and leave the link.
    Hugs and prayers

  2. Ok, I did blog about your site. I just had to share it. I also posted the photo of your little basket - I meant to ask first, but I hope you do not mind. I gave full credit for coming from your site, and I linked to your site.
    Here's the post:

  7. X favor alguien me puede decir como se hace no entiendo el tutorial se me hace dificil por favor.....gracias anticipadamente

  8. Love this little basket. Made 3 for grandbabies. I also used to colors of yarn to make 3 more larger and used a k hook. Love it. Thanks for pattern. Vivian

  9. I am still using and loving this pattern. Today and tomorrow, will be making 12 for treat baskets for neighbors, in Christmas variegated colors...they are adorable and perfectly sized to place a paper cupcake liner inside of them...thanks again for posting and sharing this which has been a fave of mine since I first found it in 2010!

  10. This is such a great pattern! They're easy to make and are able to be made in about ten minutes. However, there is a suggestion I would like to make: When you finish R5, you don't have to fasten off. Since you're already at a sc space, you can connect your R5 to that sc space and from there just chain 22, then connect to the other side and then fasten off.
