Easy pattern to follow but it doies not give yarn or needle size in the main pattern I scrolled down and did find in the comments below that it was DK yarn and 4mm needles. They would make great little easter gifts filled with mini eggs or you could use a thicker yarn and larger needles to make one big enough for a larger egg. They do not take a great amount of yarn so you can get a few out of a ball of DK or use up yarn from your stash as I have also made some stripey ones which look great.

I agree, these are really cute! If you use what the pattern says, DK yarn and 4mm (size 6) needles, the baskets will be small, and could be small enough to use a table favors for a party or get-together. It doesn't really matter what color you make them in, so just use up your leftover yarn balls and have fun!

Hello Kris1010, the author said "I used DK yarn and 4mm needles" 4mm needles are size US 6. I suspect you could make these baskets of worsted weight yarn with size 8 needles and they would work up nicely, just a little bigger. You could boy it up by using bright primary colors, orange, yellow or green and making sure you include some boy toys nestled in the Easter grass. Plastic dinosaurs with dinosaur eggs, small cars etc. You could also sew on boy style buttons around the rim. Hope that helps.

These are so cute! Does anyone know what size needles or gauge yarn were used for the pattern? I'm assuming worsted, probably a size 8 needle? With two littler boys, I'm wondering if there's a way to "boy" it up a little. Does anyone have any ideas, other than just to use a blue shade of yarn?

Adorable baskets to knit for Easter! Little kids will have a blast carrying their mini Easter baskets filled with chocolate eggs! Can't wait to get started on making a couple of these cute baskets for my little niece. Wouldn't it be great to use ribbon for handles instead of knitting it?
