Crocheted Egg Pattern

Whew! I’m exhausted. Like a lot of bloggers that I follow, I’ve been working on a little spring cleaning. Ironically we are expecting a blizzard for the next few days. Go figure…

6-DSCN5172This crocheted egg pattern stitches up quickly and uses a “real” fake plastic Easter egg for the inside form.

The egg is made using a G-hook and worsted weight yarn.

Ch 3. Slip stitch to the first chain to form a ring. Note: The egg is crocheted in continuous rounds.

Round 1
6 sc in the ring.

Round 2
2 sc in each st. (12 sc)

Round 3
*Sc in next st, 2 sc in the next. Repeat from * around. (18 sc)

Rounds 4-9
Sc in each st.

Round 10
*Sc in next st, dec the next two stitches together. Repeat from * around (12 sc)

1-DSCN5165Slip a plastic egg inside with the fat end in the bottom of the pouch.

Rounds 11-13
Sc in each st around.

Round 14

Slip stitch in the next st. Finish off leaving a tail approximately 12 inches long. Thread the tail on a yarn needle. Sew a running stitch around the last row. Pull the thread to draw the opening closed. Knot and cut the yarn. Weave the end under the stitches.

2-DSCN5167The flowers are made using a D-hook and worsted weight yarn.

Ch 3. Slip stitch to the first chain to form a ring.
