Braided Basket Crochet Pattern

Braided Basket Crochet Pattern

I wanted to design a basket that actually looked like a woven basket so that is how I came up with the Braided Basket Crochet Pattern.  This design came about at the right time, it is almost Easter time!  I am always SO excited about this time of year! This season brings resurrection of Jesus and flowers and birds and oh so much more!

When my kids were little I loved filling in for the Easter Bunny by placing an Easter Basket at the end of my kids’ beds!  I loved seeing the excitement on their faces when they woke up in the morning that would be the first thing they seen!
