Crocheted Easter Eggs & Pattern

Crocheted Easter Eggs are so much fun and the pattern is super simple!

Crocheted_Easter_Eggs_Pattern

Most of you know that I love to crochet.  I just have a hard time finding the time :)  This past weekend I set out to crochet some Easter eggs and developed this Crocheted Easter Egg pattern (after many futile attempts!) that makes eggs that are darn near the same size as a large egg and so fun to make!  I think making this with bold and bright colors would be just beautiful too!

These Crocheted Easter Eggs are a great way to use up leftover yarn.  I used some from baby blankets that I have made.  You will also need some sort of filling – I used Poly-Fil.

I used an F hook and a variety of yarn.  Change the colors where you wish to make your own unique Easter Egg!

Sc Dec = Single Crochet Decrease (Insert hook in first stitch, yo, pull up loop, insert hook in second stitch, yo, pull up loop, yo, pull thru remaining 3 loops on hook.)

Crocheted Easter Egg Pattern: 
Ch 3. Sl st to form ring.
Round 1: 5 sc in ring.
Round 1: 2 sc in each st around. (10 sc)
Round 3: (2 sc in next st, sc in next st) repeat 5 times. (15 sc)
Round 4: (2 sc in next st, sc in next 2 st) repeat 5 times. (20 sc)

Round 5: (2 sc in next st, sc in next 3 st) repeat 5 times. (25 sc)
(I usually turn the egg inside out around this point.)
Rounds 6-9:  sc in each st around (25 sc)
(Start stuffing the egg.)
Round 10:  (Sc Dec, sc in next 3 st)  repeat 5 times. (20 sc)

Round 11:  sc in each st around (20 sc)
Round 12:   (Sc Dec, sc in next 2 st)  repeat 5 times. (15 sc)
Round 13:  sc in each st around (15 sc)

Round 14:   (Sc Dec, sc in next st)  repeat 5 times. (10 sc)
(Finish stuffing egg.)
Round 15:  (Sc Dec) repeat 5 times (5 sc)
Thread yarn though remain stitches.  Pull yarn through the top of the egg to finish off.

Flower Instructions:
Ch 4. Sl st to form ring.
(Ch 3, sc. to form a petal) Repeat until you have the desired number of petals.  I did between 5-7.

  17. Great eggs, and you don’t have to make new ones every year or throw out hardboiled rotton eggs. Am hunting up some yarn almost as I write this. Came to visit via Made by you Mondays…

  18. I have a whole crate of yarn balls. I promised I would use them all before I bought new yarn. I will be testing these out and using some of those balls now! Came via MBYM

  19. Those are absolutely the cutest eggs! Now I have the perfect solution to all of my extra yarn. Thanks for being a part of our “Strut Your Stuff Saturday.” We loved having you and hope you’ll be back! -The Sisters

  21. Those are neat. Did you stuff them with something? My 10 year old knits and crochets a lot. I think this would be a nice quick project for her.

  22. Thank you for the great tutorial. I re-worked your pattern a bit so that I could crochet around some plastic Easter eggs.. you can find my post about it here:

  27. SO cute! I am going to have to whip up a bunch of these. I can’t seem to find plastic easter eggs here in Hong Kong, so all the cute tutorials for covering those aren’t helping me decorate! Love this!!! pinning!
