Sweet Little Easter Baskets
Kids go crazy for miniature knits, and these Sweet Little Easter Baskets are no exception. Easter patterns like these are instant classics because not only do little girls love them for their dollhouses, but they can carry the oh-so-important jellybeans and chocolate eggs.
Hooded Bunny Cowl
Who doesn't love dressing up for the holidays? Kids, that's who... unless they get to dress up like a character. Your toddler or small child will adore wearing bunny ears for the day, and you'll get bonus points for not making them wear a nice dress to Easter dinner.
Easter Bunny Egg Cosy
You may be wondering what exactly the point of an egg cozy is, and the point is that there isn't a point! It's just cute, and it brings joy to those who receive one, and sometimes that's all you need. Decorate your eggs the yarny way this Easter!
Lil' Baby Bunny Hat
So many Easter patterns focus on home decor or gifts, and not enough focus on wearables! The best part about bunny hats such as this Lil' Baby Bunny Hat is that it's recyclable for Halloween!
Knit Easter Chick Basket
Bunnies may be the big Easter mascot, but I'm on Team Chicks, myself. Look how precious they are! And, hey, the whole Easter egg motif makes a whole lot more sense with little chicks... I would be ecstatic as a child to receive a little baby chick basket full of goodies on Easter day, and so will your children or grandchildren.
Fuzzy Lamb Knitting Pattern
I'm not ashamed to admit that my best friend growing up was a little stuffed lamb. This Easter, give your young loved one a gift that'll stand the test of time, rather than just another bag of candy that will be forgotten in two days.
Fuzzy Easter Chicks and Mini Easter Eggs
The best thing about adorable Easter patterns like these chicks and eggs is that they're equally as great for decor as they are for gifts for the little ones! We especially love the little twiggy nest they've been propped up on in this picture... how cute!
Baby Bunny Hat Knitting Pattern
Free Easter knitting patterns for babies to wear are easily the cutest, and typically, the little ones are none the wiser that they're sporting a bunny hat. Prepare yourself for a barrage of "awws" after you dress the baby up in this precious hat.
Easter Egg Ornaments
Maybe you don't have an Easter tree, but my family always had a fake tree in the corner growing up that we would decorate with Easter eggs in the springtime and fairy lights in the winter. Decorate your house with some easy-to-knit Easter egg ornaments this season!
One Square Knit Bunny
That's right: this bunny is made using just one square. The precious pom pom tail on this little guy is the only thing cuter than its precious sleepy eyes. Kids of all age will love him.
Knit Cross Bookmarks
Remember the meaning of Easter this season with special Knit Cross Bookmarks for your Bible. Mark a special passage to read on the special day this year, or make a bunch to hand out to your church friends.
