Cute and Easy Crochet Eggs

Yes, more crochet eggs!  There have been a lot around these parts lately, with the bright colourful Easter eggs I made for Hobbycraft - see them here.

Now, here are some in a different - more subtle - style!

Looking for a free pattern to crochet some cute and easy eggs?  This quick and easy pattern is perfect to handmake some sweet easter decorations.

They are made with very thin embroidery cotton held alongside some white Rico Creative Cotton Aran yarn, which was left over from my other Easter eggs.  The thin embroidery cotton was given to me last year by a friend of my Mum - I have a mixture of Coats and Twilleys in size 20 - it's so thin!  (You might have seen it before when I showed the delicate snowflakes I made last year.)  So this was a completely stash-busting project!

What makes these so effective is that the thin coloured crochet cotton is variegated, so the colour darkening and lightening throughout the egg gives a lovely natural effect.  Ok, maybe not completely natural with some of the colours I've used!

The three one-coloured eggs use the orangey, the blue and the mint variegated cottons.  The multi-coloured egg was made by holding the blue, orangey and purple (non-variegated) together with the white aran cotton.

  1. Hi maria, I made the egg decoration and it was good. I think my eggs must have been smaller from hobbycraft as I couldn't fit on the spike stitch round.. mmm will try some more. Jo x

    1. Hi Jo - I'm so pleased you gave it a go and it looked good! Thanks for letting me know! Perhaps going down a hook size or more might help you fit all the rounds in? I find that I have a tight tension, so even though I actually used a larger than recommended hook size for the aran yarn, my tension meant I could fit all the rounds in. What size did you use? Maybe experiment with smaller hooks and see how it goes! Have you put any pictures online of your egg? Maria x
