Today is officially the first day of spring! We didn’t have much of a winter, but I am excited that spring is here and Easter is just a few weeks away! If you’re looking for something quick and easy to make, these little crochet easter eggs are perfect!These eggs are so easy and quick to make! They are worked in a continuous round, so you will need some kind of stitch marker. I used my Clover stitch markers, but you can easily use a scrap piece of yarn or a spare bobby pin!
I made these eggs with a 4.00mm hook and used Lily’s Sugar ‘n’ Cream yarn. They have a lot of really pretty colors that are perfect for bright Easter eggs!
Round 1: Starting with a magic ring, work 6 sc in the ring. Do not join this round with a slip stitch. You will just continue working in the previous stitches, creating kind of a spiral. Slip your stitch marker on the 6th stitch to mark when you get back to the beginning.
Round 2: In each sc, work 2sc (12 sc) Move your stitch marker to the 12th stitch. Continue to move your stitch marker to the last stitch at the end of each round so you know when you’re back to the start.
Round 3: *In first sc, work 2sc. Work 1 sc in next sc* Repeat between ** to finish the round (18 sc)
Round 4: *In first sc, work 2sc. Work 1 sc in next 2 sc* Repeat between ** to finish the round (24 sc)
Your circle will start to curl as you go through these rounds. You will start to see the bottom of your egg!Round 9: This is your first round with a decrease. *In the first two stitches, work a sc2tog. Work 1 sc in the next 4 stitches* Repeat between ** to finish the round
Round 10: Work 1 sc in each stitch
Round 11: This round also has a decrease. *In the first two stitches, work a sc2tog. Work 1 sc in the next 3 stitches* Repeat between ** to finish the round
Round 12: Work 1 sc in each stitch.
You will notice that it is starting to taper in at the top, creating the egg shape.Round 13: *In the first two stitches, work a sc2tog. Work 1 sc in the next 2 stitches* Repeat between ** to finish the round
You will probably still have a little hole at the top. That’s okay, just take your tail and weave it through the last round of stitches and pull it tight to cinch the top closed.
I like to hide the tail by using a needle to sew it into the egg. Push the needle into the top of the egg and pull it out through the side.
I love the way these turned out! They are so cute and are a perfect decoration or gift for Easter. Unfortunately though, there isn’t any candy hiding in the center of these!
