This pattern is available for free.

Make yourself some colorful Easter eggs to decorate your house, go egg hunting with your toddlers or make a colorful basketful to give as a gift. Or use a white or brown yarn for a more realistic-looking play food.

About 6 cm (2.4 in) high and 4,5 cm (1.8 in) wide with sport weight cotton yarn and a 1,75 mm crochet hook.

Skills required
You should know how to crochet single crochet stitches (double crochet in the UK), start a piece with an adjustable loop, increase, decrease, finish a closed piece, and hide yarn tails. If you have not mastered them yet, take a look at my tutorials library.

You will need

  • Yarn. I used sport weight cotton yarn, 125 m = 50 g (135 yd = 50 g) / 4 ply / 14 wpi (Madame Tricote ”Camilla”, Steinbach Wolle “Capri”), but any yarn can be used. You will need about 6-10 g of yarn for each egg.
  • 1,75 mm crochet hook or according to the yarn.
  • Polyester fiberfill, wool, wadding etc. for stuffing.
  • Scissors, yarn needle, stitch marker.
  • Beads, buttons, embroidery floss, ribbon etc. for decorating, thread and sewing needle.
