Are you in need of some Easter decoration? Here’s the perfect pattern for you!
With this pattern you can crochet whole eggs, egg-halves with jagged edges and chicks.

Eggs and Chicks are fast and easy to crochet. Whether single-colored or multicolored… let your imagination run free. :)

The Rainbow-Egg was inspired by the Umizoomi episode „Umi Egg Hunt“. My kids are huge fans and now so proud of their own Rainbow-Eggs. :)

You’ll find the following patterns/instructions within the Egg-Collection:

  • whole Egg with round bottom
  • whole Egg with flat bottom
  • top Egg-Half
  • bottom Egg-Half with round bottom
  • bottom Egg-Half with flat bottom
  • details on color-changes for whole Eggs (Rainbow-Egg)
  • Chick
  • details on color-changes for Egg-Halves
  • details on embroidering flowers/stars onto whole Eggs ✿ ✿ ✿

❤ Crochet skill level: easy.

❤ Size: 6.5 – 7.0 cm (Egg) & 3.5 cm (Chick)
The size depends on the gauge and yarn you’re using.
I’m using Puppets Lyric yarn from Coats and a 3 mm hook.

❤ The pattern contains lots of reference pictures and step-by-step-instructions.

❤ Crochet pattern in PDF format, available in two languages:

English: US crochet terms, English texts and descriptions
German: German crochet terms, German texts and descriptions

Note: The German version is available through Etsy and DaWanda.

❤ info:
The figure is crocheted in continuous rounds/spirals;
rounds are not joined;
use a stitch-marker to mark the beginning of each round;

❤ techniques used in this pattern:

  • magic ring (recommended)
  • chain
  • single crochet
  • double crochet
  • crocheting in the back loop (instructions included)
  • increase and (invisible) decrease
  • slip stitch
  • changing yarn-color (instructions included)
  • crocheting in the round (rounds are not joined!)
  • crocheting back and forth in rows
  • some embroidery (eyes, optional flowers)
  • some basic sewing (beak, sewing remaining openings closed)

❤ materials used:

  • crochet hook (size depends on your yarn)
  • stuffing
  • tapestry needle
  • scissors

If you are making the figure for a child, washable yarn and stuffing is recommended.
