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”.
2″ wide by 2.75″ long
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).
Round 1: Make a magic ring with 6 sc. Do not join, continue to work in spiral throughout. Use a stitch marker to identify first stitch of each round.
Round 2: Make 2 sc in each st. (12 sts)
Round 3: 1 sc in each st. (12 sts)
Round 4: 1 sc in the first st. *2 sc in next st. 1 sc in next st. Rep from * to end of round. (18 sts)
Round 5: 1 sc in each st. (18 sts)
Round 6: 1 sc in the first 2 sts. *2 sc in next st. 1 sc in next 2 sts. Rep from * to end of round (24 sts)
Rounds 7-12: 1 sc in each st. (24 sts)
Round 13: 1 sc in the first 2 sts. Sc2tog. *1 Sc in next 2 sts. Sc2tog. Rep from * to end of round. (18 sts)
Round 14: 1 sc in the first st. *Sc2tog. 1 Sc in next st. Rep from * to end of round. (12 sts)
Stuff egg at end of this round.
Round 15: *Sc2tog. Rep from * to end of round. (6 sts) Remove stitch marker and slst into that st to correct jog from working in a spiral.
Fasten off leaving a 5-6″ tail. Using a darning needle, run the tail in and out of each of the 6 stitches of your final round (this will create a drawstring closure). Pull on the tail to draw up the opening and weave in your end.
