Best yarn to crochet Easter baskets

Typically, crochet baskets need to be sturdy and firm, so the heavier weight yarns work best for them. Acrylic, cotton, and T-shirt bulky weight yarns are the best for crochet Easter baskets because they are durable and build up super quick. 

However, worsted weight yarns are okay for baskets as well. And if you are making larger baskets, I recommend that you use 100% cotton or cotton/acrylic blend, that way you will have more solid baskets.

How to make the free crochet easter basket patterns?

Baskets are one of the easiest projects to crochet and single crochet stitches are the best to make a solid basket. If you would rather create your own pattern, my tip is to make a circle with single crochet as the bottom of the basket.

And then, add as many increase rounds as needed to your desired bottom size. Next, keep adding plain rounds of single crochet until you reach the height you want your basket to be.

And finally, crochet the handle with back-and-forth rows of single crochet. The best stitch for the handle will be single crochet stitch, as it makes it stand sturdy and tall. You will notice that most baskets in this list of free crochet easter basket patterns call for single crochet stitches.
