I remember the joy of getting an Easter basket as a kid. We would put our baskets out on the table the night before Easter and the Easter Bunny would fill them with candy and other goodies while we were asleep. I always had the cheap store-bought Easter baskets but if I were going to make Easter baskets for kids today I'd definitely make crochet Easter baskets. Here are 10 free crochet Easter basket patterns for those of you who are thinking the same thing!
Note: You could also adapt many of these patterns to work as gift baskets and home decor items all throughout the year. Never limit yourself to just one holiday when working with a crochet pattern!

I love how colorful crochet looks but the truth is that I don't like changing colors in my own work so I appreciate a good single-color textured crochet project like this basketweave basket from Planet M Files. It adds rich coziness to the room and would work as an every day basket, not just as an Easter basket.
