An original Easter Egg crochet pattern by June Gilbank.

Pattern includes 4 egg designs, so that, using only 2 colours of yarn, you can make 8 different eggs!

This pattern is a great way to practice crochet colourwork and maybe learn a new stitch. The four egg designs are arranged in order of difficulty, so that novice crocheters can start with the basic plain egg, and move up through the designs, learning something new about colourwork with each one.

The patterns are all designed so that there are no ends to weave in: just drop the unused yarn to the inside of the egg, and pick it back up again when you work back around to it!

With no sewing involved, these eggs make a quick and gorgeous Easter decoration. You could arrange them in a bowl or basket as a centrepiece, hang them from an Easter tree, or string them into an Easter garland. Make your own delicious chocolate eggs, but without the calories!

Yarn: worsted weight yarn in any two colours of your choice

Hook: US E / 3.5mm

Size: Approx 2.75” tall
