Crochet Easter Basket Pattern. Bunny Bag with Drawstrings

This cute Bunny Bag with Drawstrings and floppy ears makes for a really cute Easter Basket. I  was wanting to crochet something for my husband's friend's children for putting in as part of their easter gift.

 SO I set out to crochet a cute treat gift bag to give them easter as a gift. Big enough to put a few little chocolate eggs into but also a handy size that they could use at any time of the year to keep their bits and bobs in. 
You could also crochet the 5 Little ducks and put them in the bag, I originally crocheted my grandson the 5 little ducks, as he just loved the nursery rhyme.

I decided that since they are in primary I wasn't going to crochet a traditional basket as I wanted something they could carry without anything falling out of it.  So when I started out crocheting them an easter basket, somehow along the way I made the cute Easter Bunny Basket with pull ties. 

I Love how it pulls together and looks ends up looking like a long-eared bunny. I used this yarn i had laying around and it made quite a rustic easter bag.

It is so easy to Crochet a Bunny Easter Bag, with Drawstring, and with long floppy ears. And you can crochet easter eggs and let the kids have a fantastic easter hunt and fill their little bags 

This is a beginner-friendly crochet pattern. YES, you read that right. 
You will work in continuous rounds, and use markers to help keep track of rounds. 

I try to make the sequencing of the crochet pattern easy to remember where to place the increases. 
So to Simplify the Pattern, I have added some Cheats within the pattern. 

When you START the crochet bunny basket, You work a chain and work on either side of these initial chains.
YOu will INCREASE by 4 stitches in each round, and EACH increase will be into the middle of previous rounds 2 single crochet that you work into the SAME stitch. 
SO once the first round is done simply remember to work 2sc into the middle of the previous rounds 2 sc. 
I have made several of these. And love adding little crochet items into the bag 

The most Perfect size I have found Using a 4.5mm hook and ARAN yarn (PINK as shown in tutorial photos)
