This colorful Easter Egg Dishcloth Knitting Pattern is a fun project to make in a variety of sizes. You can get really creative with your knitted Easter decor by making these garter stitch egg shapes into pennant banners, table decor, drink coasters, party trivets, potholders, and hot pads. It’s an easy quick-knit, so it’s a perfect last minute Easter knitting pattern.

Feel free to use any weight yarn and appropriately sized knitting needles. My two size examples used size 7 US Needles and #4 Worsted Weight Yarn.
4” x 4” Gauge Garter Stitch = 18 Sts + 30 Rows
Smaller Size Pattern = 5” x 6”
Larger Size Pattern = 8” x 9”
