Hi, Nj here! The first crochet mini basket has been posted and it is time for the second one. The crochet snowman mini Christmas basket is part of the mini crochet Christmas cups. Pretty quick and easy Christmas gift!
- Santa Claus crochet mini basket.
- Reindeer crochet mini basket
- The Grinch crochet mini basket
- The Gingerman crochet mini basket
- The penguin mini basket.
These crochet cups are quick and easy last-minute gift projects that you can make in just an hour or less! With the coming of School’s holiday break, you can crochet a few for your child’s class and fill them with some candy and small gifts. The kids will love them! Last year, I made some easter baskets and fill them with chocolate bunnies for my mom’s kindergarten class. It was a blast among the little ones.
Don’t have time to make this pattern right now?
A few notes before we start:
As I said the snowman is part of the Christmas mini basket collection. Before you start with this pattern please read all the information on the main post- Crochet Santa Claus cup.
The baskets can be worked in waistcoat stitch or regular single crochet stitch. If you use a single crochet stitch you need to reduce the rounds and work them till round 14 and then make the last round of crab stitch. I have a full video tutorial for this cup so if you have any troubles through out the pattern you check it out.
- worsted weight yarn/aran weight yarn in white, a small amount of red for the scarf, and orange for the nose.
- crochet hook size – 6mm/ J- hook size
- safety eyes – 12mm(not necessary)- you can always crochet them
SC- single crochet
**- repeat the stitches in ** indicated times
FO- fasten off
MR- magic ring
