Introduction

About this Pattern


If you’re looking for a fun little Easter crochet project, look no further than these cute little crochet Easter eggs. They’re perfect to add to Easter baskets, to decorate your table or island, to gift to your kids’ teachers and if you’re real ambitious, to host a handmade crochet Easter egg hunt!

This project will allow you to practice crocheting in the round and is a good introduction into “non-traditional” increases to achieve an oblong shape.

Before you begin, review this page entirely so you understand the full scope of the project. We’ve prepared a list of recommended supplies, abbreviations as well as written instructions and a video tutorial to help you through the project from start to finish.

You will find the full pattern for free here on this page.

However, B.Hooked Insiders will have online access to all B.Hooked patterns ad-free, including weekly office hours for pattern support?

B.Hooked Insider will launch later in 2020!

Abbreviations


This pattern is written using standard US crochet terminology.

  • Ch Chain
  • Rep Repeat
  • Sc Single Crochet
  • Sc2tog Single Crochet Two Together **
  • Slst Slip Stitch
  • St(s) Stitch(es)

Single Crochet Two Together (Sc2tog): Insert hook in designated stitch through the front loop only, yarn over and pull up a loop. Insert hook into next stitch through the front loop only, yarn over and pull up a loop. Yarn over and pull through all three loops on your hook.

By using the front loops only, you are creating what is called the “invisible decrease”.


Finished Size

2″ wide by 2.75″ long

Gauge

Use finished size to measure gauge.

These crochet easter eggs are worked in spiral rounds beginning with a magic ring. You will use a variety of increasing and non-increasing rounds to achieve the desired shape.

Decreases (sc2tog) are worked using the invisible method to reduce the size of the holes you will see on the bottom of your egg. Please see special stitches for instructions on how to crochet the invisible decrease (sc2tog).
