This free crochet Easter Egg pattern is absolutely addictive!

Get ready for a really fun and fast crochet project! These crochet Easter eggs can be made in any size or color. String five or six together for a festive garland. Sew onto a blanket or table cloth. Use as clothing or backpack patches, really the possibilities are endless.

Have fun with different yarn colors, weights, and crochet hooks. I tried to show how using different yarns and hooks can give any size you need.

Try your hand at embroidery to add a special touch to these eggs. I’m not very good at embroidery, but I won’t stop trying.

Crochet Terminology

This tutorial is written using US crochet terminology in the following abbreviations:

CH = Chain
SC = Single Crochet

SC2TOG = Single crochet 2 stitches together = Insert hook in next stitch, yarn over and pull up loop. You will have 2 loops on your hook. Then insert hook in next stitch, yarn over and pull up loop (3 loops on hook), yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook.

Hook Size

Use a hook size to get the size you need.

Pattern Notes

The CH1 at the end of each row does not count as a stitch.

The last stitch in each row should be made in the turning chain. This gives a nice, even edge.

Crochet over your ends and weave them in as you go to reduce the amount of finishing at the end.

Count your stitches, especially those SC rows. It is easy to miss a stitch in the beginning of the rows.
