Easter Basket Pattern


Designed by Marlene O’Reilly, this round basket is the ideal size for a certain little gooey chocolate egg, or it can be filled with mini eggs, flowers, or anything else you fancy. You will use circular peyote, tubular peyote, twisted tubular herringbone, flat even count peyote (with shaping) and a leaf fringe technique.

Approx diameter at the top of the basket is 4.5cm. Overall height is about 8.5cm.

You should have some experience of peyote stitch and herringbone weave, although full instructions with diagrams and photographs are provided over 16 pages.

See description below for more information and material requirements.
