Crocheted Easter Eggs are so much fun and the pattern is super simple!
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 14: (Sc Dec, sc in next st) repeat 5 times. (10 sc)
(Finish stuffing egg.)

Thread yarn though remain stitches. Pull yarn through the top of the egg to finish off.
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.
