Sharing the sweet vintage pattern for crochet Easter eggs. Crochet in pretty pastel colors and fill a basket or bowl for a lovely and decorative holiday centerpiece. Pattern works up quickly and uses just a little yarn.
- yarn of choice in any color you like. My mom made hers smaller by using a sport-weight yarn. You can use a worsted-weight yarn for larger eggs.
- Choose a hooks size for a nice tight-ish stitch.
Crochet Easter Egg
NOTE: When working in rounds, I mark the end of each round with a piece of contrasting yarn and move it as I complete each round.
Starting at the bottom of the egg
Rnd 6: sc in each sc around; increasing in every 4th sc. (30 sc)
Rnd 7-8: work even for two rounds (30 sc)
Rnd 9: sc in each sc around, increasing in every 10th sc. (33 sc)
Rnd 10-15: work even (33 sc)
Rnd 16: sc in each sc around decreasing in every 10th sc (30 sc)Begin stuffing your egg. You will need to add more at the end but I think you can get a better shape if you begin at this point.
Rnd 17: Work even (30 sc).
Rnd 18: sc in each sc decreasing every 5th sc (25 sc)
Rnd 19-20: work even (25)
Rnd 21: Sc in each around decreasing every 4th sc (20 sc). Continue stuffing your egg.
Rnd 22: Repeat last rnd. (16 sc)
Rnd 23: Sc in each sc around, decreasing every 3rd sc (12 sc)
Rnd 24: Sc in each sc around, decreasing every other stitch for two rounds till closed. Break off.
