Super bulky yarn and big needles = Easy, fast knit ~ I finished easily in an afternoon.

Worked in the round, bottom up.

Totally reversible patterning - different on each side but equally appealing on both. To me, one side looks like half and half textured Easter eggs, the other the baskets to put them in. Hence the A Tisket A Tasket title.

Very simple stitches -just knit, purl, YO and p3tog, worked in an 8 round by 6 stitch repeat. The edge is designed to curl under, just to the first line of the stitch repeat.

You can leave piece 'as knit' or block lightly.

I think this would also be lovely worked as a shoulderette/wrap/oversized cowl with more stitches at CO and more yarn (2+ hanks)

It is very easy to +/- circumference; Each rep = aprox 3" (15.25 cm)
Stitch multiple is 6, so +/- multiples of 6 at CO for each +/- 3" (15.25 cm) desired.


9 sts = 4" (10 cm) as knit
8 sts = 4" (10 cm) blocked
pattern for gauge stockinette
Gauge not critical but will affect yardage and finished dimensions

  • Unblocked 24"(61cm) by 10" (25cm) tall
  • Blocked it is 27" (68.5 cm) by 11.5" (29 cm)


  • 1 hank (90yds) Malabrigo Rasta yarn or another super bulky
  • US sz 15 or 17 (10 or 12.75 mm) 20" (50 cm) long

You Will Also Need:
