Add a Touch of Spring to Your Home With 7 Easter Knitting Patterns

We just had a 6-inch snow here in North Carolina, followed by a 60-degree Sunday that made me ache for spring. I need something to keep me busy while the weather pulls it together, so I’ll cope with it the only way I know how: Easter knitting patterns!

From chicks to bunnies and baskets, busy yourself with decorating your home with seven spring-inspired knitting patterns.

Sweet Bunny Easter Egg Holder

This bunny is meant to hold eggs, but you could also stash Easter grass, candy, or other spring treats in there. It’s also a great way to present an Easter gift! You’ll get plenty of short row practice as you stitch your bunny.

Flowers aren’t super cooperative this time of year, and real ones wilt quickly anyway, so pop a little color into your home with a vase full of daffodils. Designer Julie Taylor also suggests using one of the flowers as a brooch, wreath embellishment, or even a napkin ring.

If you’re a fan of those famous creamy Easter eggs, you’ll definitely want to knit one of these owls. After Easter is over, you can fill the owl’s arms with other seasonal goodies, or just keep it around because it’s cute!

Knit and Felt Egg Ornaments

Have any 100% wool yarn in your stash? I bet it would felt beautifully to make a little collection of these Easter eggs. Embroider them or add trim, buttons, and other embellishments to add a little something special.

Easter Egg Sheep Cozies

Rabbits and chickens often overshadow sheep in Easter decor. You can give sheep the attention they deserve when you place these sweet little cozies on top of your eggs. It would make a great Easter table decoration.

Easter Basket

This is a versatile Easter knitting pattern. It’s a great little basket for giving Easter treats, but it could also be a tabletop decoration or even a soft toy. You won’t need much yarn to knit this one up. Don’t be afraid to use unexpected, nontraditional colors!

I love the inspiration behind this cute pattern. Designer Cutiepatootees created this pattern after being inspired by her three daughters who are seriously into preparing food in their play kitchen. Use the plain eggs for play and save the cute chicks for your Easter decor.
