If you’re a beginner looking to get your needles into the world of Easter knitting patterns, you are in the right place.

There are so many easy, adorable and colourful patterns out there that are perfect for both new knitters and those with a more experienced level. From cute and cuddly bunnies, colourful knitted Easter eggs, various themed creme egg covers, as well as soft knitted animal toys to remind us all that it’s Spring time again.

Basic Knitting Skills

In this post, we’ll explore some of the best things to knit for Easter that are suited to those who have just learned the foundational skills of knitting. They will, I am sure, bring a smile to your face, delight young children and remind us all of the true meaning of Easter’s resurrection and renewal.

Use Up Left Over Yarn

Many of these knitting projects can be created from very small amounts of yarn that you may already have lying around from previous things you have made. If you do have to buy yarn chances are that you’ll be asked to make more so that purchase is not likely to be wasted. I find that whenever I knit something friends and family who see it always ask for one so left over yarn always comes in handy.

Now it’s time to choose which project you want to make.
