Item details

My sons inspired this pattern because lately they have been pretending to have a picnic a LOT. This crochet pattern includes instructions for:
-- picnic basket: 8.25" long, 7" wide and 6" tall (not including the handles);
-- chicken drumsticks: 5.5" long and 1.5" in diameter;
-- potato salad and baked beans in containers: 4" in diamter and 3" tall;
-- watermellon: 5.5" long;
-- picnic blanket: 32.5" wide and 42" long.

All of the food fits into the basket with room to spare in case you want to add some plates, etc.

To complete this project you will need to know how to chain, make a magic adjustable ring, half double crochet, single crochet in the round, increase and decrease stitches, and slip stitch.

PDF pattern is available for immediate download. It will not be sent by email.

Average review
This pattern is great! I double up the worsted weight yarn for a bigger basket. It's very heavy and sturdy and fits lots of food in it. Definitely recommend this pattern.

I love this pattern! It is nice and solid, and the plastic mesh makes the lid fall down solidly with a nice thump. My niece absolutely loves it. I will note that it is many pieces sewn together. But that's what makes it look so nice and authentic. Make sure you have a good bit of time to devote to it. It took me around a week, but I really only got to work on it at night for a few hours at a time. I suppose if I'd had uninterrupted time it would have been maybe two or three days.

The pattern was received promptly, as it was an auto download. As the pictured shows, the picnic basket is supposed to be a rectangle. Mine came out as a square. Before posting this review, I contacted the shop owner and have received no response. Between the square & lack of customer service, I have given 1 star for disappointed. There were no options for giving no star.
