The Easter Basket C2C Square is a free pattern for the third square in my Easter Blanket Crochet a Long!
I just love how cute this square turned out! A little pink bunny peeking his head out over the top of the basket next to a multicolored Easter egg!
If you would like to purchase the ad-free pdf of this pattern you can find it on Ravelry here. For one price you will get all 9 pattern pdfs for each individual square of the blanket as well as border instructions to finish! As each square is posted, the corresponding pdf will get added to Ravelry as they are released so if you purchase now each pdf will get added as we work through the blanket!
This square is just slightly more challenging than the previous squares with several color changes throughout the square but so worth it!
For those of you that are new to the Corner to Corner (C2C) technique I have several photo and video tutorials which will help you with this blanket —

This blanket will end up being a total of 9 squares and here is a sneak peek at next week’s square —
