Here's an easy weekend project! This is a free crochet pattern for a basket which when Easter is over can be used as a jewelry/ trinkets holder, so it can be used all year round.
The basket pattern makes it gain an interesting bubbly shape. DK yarn is used for this project and a 3 mm hook.
For the flowers I use embroidery floss and a 1mm hook.
Ch 5 and join to make a ring. Sc 5 in ring.
Round 1: sc2 in every stitch (10)
Round 2: sc2 in every stitch (20)
Round 3:sc2 in every stitch (40)
Round 4: sc1 in every stitch (40)
Round 5: sc2, sc1 (60)
Round 6-7: sc1 in every stitch (60)
Round 8: sc2, sc1 (90)
Round 9: sc1 in every stitch (90)
Round 10: sc2, sc1 (135)

Round 12: sc2tog, sc1 (90)
Round 13: sc2tog, sc1 (60)
Round 14: sc1 in every stitch (60).
The increase and decrease make this unusual shape. Add flowers, ribbons or whatever tickles your fancy and it is ready! Making this was a bit tedious, to be honest, but I believe the effort was worth it!
For the flowers and leaves use some of the patterns I shared here
Have a lovely weekend!
