Crochet Easter Egg

Easy Crochet Easter Egg Pattern – Spring Decor Three Ways

Crochet Easter Egg

With Easter a month away, I have been trucking along figuring out some crochet Easter egg patterns to share. After I discovered how wonderful it is to use DK yarn to make amigurumi’s with, I have been using it non stop in my pattern designs! It creates a much softer look and it curves nicer than some thicker yarns when you are making more detailed items.

Today I wanted to share one pattern, but by making a few changes to them you can make many different eggs with just a few different stitches or colour changes. You can use them for decorations or add it to your egg hunt this year! Remember to check out my pattern for the tulip basket to use on your egg hunting day!
