The Christmas Reindeer Basket is a free crochet pattern on my blog.

This cute and quick treat cup works up so fast - perfect last minute Christmas idea!

If you are looking to make a few quick gifts for kids, teachers and friends or to sell at craft fairs this festive little basket would be perfect.

These cute little treat cups would make the perfect alternative to Christmas stockings. They are quick and you could customize each one. And, they actually hold quite a few treats in there. Present holiday treats like candy, trinkets, small bottles of body wash, perfume, lip balm or even small toys. Present a gift card and candy to a coworker or for a teacher. So many ways to use these fun treat baskets!

These cups are beginner friendly using simple stitches with links to video tutorials for how to make a perfect circle for the base as well as the tutorial for the crab stitch or reverse single crochet stitch used at the top of the cups.

Great project for scrap amounts of yarn. Pattern is for the reindeer, to make the snowman you would change the color of the basket to white and add buttons (or crochet a nose and eyes if desired) for the snowman.
