Crochet Easter Eggs.  Sigh.  Nothing says spring like cheery little eggs and these crochet eggs are perfect for the season.
Crochet Easter EggsI love Easter. It is everything that is spring.  The sun shining.  The grass growing.  The birds coming back from their winter rest and chirping in the trees.  I love the bright spring colors of flowers poking their heads up in anticipation of sunny, warm days.

Fresh beginnings arising from the cold, dark winter.  Hope springs eternal. And this Crochet Easter Eggs pattern will warm your heart and brighten your spring day.

This is a three-part Easter crochet series.  First, these cute Crochet Easter Eggs, then the Crochet Easter Basket and finally the darling Easter Egg Bunny Pattern.  All three are available together as a set in the ad-free PDF, if you’d prefer.Crochet Easter EggsFirst up, these perfect eggs.  I searched high and low for an egg pattern I liked.  One that was not too pointy and rounded in just the right places.  In worsted weight yarn with a nice sized hook.  Because who wants to crochet eggs forever.  When I couldn’t find what I wanted, I experimented until I made just the thing.Crochet Easter EggsThese crochet eggs start at the top so you can see a nice, neat finish and gradually build to chunky, rounded bottom.  You can stuff them full for a jumbo sized egg, or not so full, for a large sized egg.  If you want them smaller than that, drop down a hook size.  Make them with scrap yarn in spring colors.  For a striped egg, just alternate colors.

  1. Thank you so much for these wonderful Easter patterns; these eggs I can ‘hide’ in the outdoors and they will not be eaten by the resident coyotes or bears! So excited! You are a kind soul to publish these free patterns. At 82 + my funds are very limited and buying most patterns just not possible.I so appreciate what you do.
