Mini Pom Pom Paper Basket - Free Pattern

Happy Easter everyone!

Here's a quick make to ensure you have somewhere to store all the mini eggs the Easter Bunny brings!

The pattern is worked in the round, joining with a slip stitch at the end of each round. I used Rico Creative Paper, but anything with a bit of structure such as tshirt yarn, twine, or thick cotton yarn would work! 

If you do make the pattern I'd love to see! Tag me as #lottieandalbert or @lottieandalbert on Instagram, or find me on Ravelry under the same name!
