Easter Crochet and Knitting Patterns: Bunny Rabbits, Easter Baskets and More

Isn’t it fascinating to think about the history and origins of Easter? This holiday is meaningful to many people from many different religious, philosophical and non-religious traditions. Easter is one of the most important holidays on the Christian and Catholic calendars. Popular Easter motifs include religious symbols such as crosses, plus fertility symbols such as bunnies, eggs and Easter lilies. If you’d like to portray any of these themes in yarn or thread, you’ll find many different Easter crochet and knitting patterns available on our website. Discover bunches of charts, patterns and designs for knitting and crocheting bunny toys, Easter baskets and many other Easter projects. If you celebrate Easter at all — perhaps with an Easter Egg hunt, a sunrise church service, or both, you might also enjoy adding fun Easter craft projects to your particular mix of festivities.
