Easter is coming up, so it’s time to get started on some decorations. This is a pretty easy (10 minutes or less) pattern for an Easter egg applique. It’s going to be part of a larger project that I’m working on, but this pattern is great to use for any project idea that you have too.
– Tools –
- 5 mm “H” Crochet Hook (I use Susan Bates Crystalites. They are a nice cost efficient choice.)
- Worsted weight yarn (My favorite go-to is Caron Simply Soft. It really, truly is super-soft.)
- Embroidery floss in a contrasting color or extra yarn
- Yarn Needle
- Embroidery Needle

– Egg Base –
Row 1: Create magic ring, CH 3, and DC 12 into the magic ring, pull to tighten. Sl St 1 into the top of the original chain that you created.
Row 2: CH 3, DC twice into each stitch. Sl St 1 into the top of your row 2 chain to complete this round.
– Zigzag / Stripe Detail –
With the embroidery thread or extra yarn, stitch a zigzag or striped pattern near the top of the narrow end of your crochet egg. When finished, secure and bind off.
Don’t forget to show me all of your cool crafting! I love to see your work!
