15 Easter Yarn Crafts To Try This Spring
Thursday, 24 March 2022 | Admin
It's time to crochet up those bunnies, knit up those chicks, and just get creative with yarn this Easter!
We love any excuse to get out the crochet hooks and knitting needles, and there are just so many great Easter inspired patterns out there that we just can't wait to share with you!
Once again we've decided to include a range of free and paid patterns, with a particular focus on Ukrainian designers with a view to being able to support them in some small way
So let's jump right to it!
For the Knitters:
Hare Finger Puppets - Ala Ela
These simple finger puppets would make such a lovely gift for a little one! They are really easy to knit and can easily fit in your pocket for long journeys. They don't take much yarn at all, so they are a great way to use up those scraps you have lying around.
Knitted Easter Basket - Gina Michele
We love a pattern that calls for a pom pom! This Easter Bunny Basket makes for a great home decor item and is knitted on circular needles.
Breakfast Egg Hats - Morgunova Olga
How do you like your eggs in the morning? Warm? Good - then you'll be needing these hats for your eggs!! There are some classic Easter themed animals (chicks and bunnies) but you'll also find a bear, frog, cat and an elephant pattern!
Easter Egg Cosy - Morgunova Olga
This Easter Egg Cosy is adorable. It comes in a few different designs, but we love the lamb with it's fluffy body and long ears - it has such character! Again, perfect for a gift (with a chocolate egg of course!) or simply for decoration.
Easter Waldorf Bunnies - Morgunova Olga
I'm struggling to find another word other than adorable to describe these patterns, but this one is too! Love the idea of having a small collection of these as part of an Easer display, perhaps for the table.
Mini Reversible Duck to Bunny - Susan B Anderson
If you can't decide between ducks and bunnies, then this is the pattern for you This reversible toy can be whipped up in no time at all and would make a lovely little 'buddy' for someone.
Floral Miniature Cardigan - Anna Kibalchich-Poda
This dainty little Easter Cardigan is to fit a small 32cm/13 in doll. There are also other Easter themed dolls clothes from this designer which you'll find recommended in the pattern link.
Those are all of our patterns for knitting. If you are more of a crochet hook kind of person, then these next patterns are for you:
For those who love to crochet:
Bunny Lady and Gentleman - Yulia Mozhaiska
Here's another really clever egg hat pattern, in crochet this time. Whether you want a bow tie, or a bow in the hair, this pattern is quick and easy to make. It also has photo tutorials so you can follow along that way if you wish.
Bunny Ears Headband - Bright Crochet Crafts
Make a little girls day with this cute Easter Bunny headband (and I won't judge if you want to make one for yourself!) Customise with your own colours and get into the spirit of Easter.

Snuggly Bunny Crochet - Bright Crochet Crafts
Having tested this pattern, we can say that it truly is a fabulously squishy bunny made using Cygnet Scrumpalicious Yarn. Great for a baby toy as it's so soft and comforting.

If you're looking for something a little bit novel, then this Easter Chick photo frame is it - It doesn't get much cuter than this!
