Mini Easter Eggs Crochet Pattern

Here’ what you need:

Click here to reference the Crochet Abbreviations Chart.

This pattern is written to be worked in a spiral, therefore it is helpful to use a stitch marker to keep track of rounds. If changing colors with each round you may refer to join rounds instead and start the next round with a chain 1.

 

Make a magic ring.

Foundation Round: Work 8 sc into ring, do not join after rounds here and throughout (see note above), pull tail to close up ring — 8 sts.

Round 1: *Work 2 sc in next st, 1 sc in each of the next 3 sts, rep from * around — 10 sts.

Round 2: *Work 2 sc in next st, 1 sc in each of the next 4 sts, rep from * around — 12 sts.

Round 3: *Work 2 sc in next st, 1 sc in each of the next 5 sts, rep from * around — 14 sts.

Round 4: *Work 2 sc in next st, 1 sc in each of the next 6 sts, rep from * around — 16 sts. 

Round 5: *Work 2 sc in next st, 1 sc in each of the next 7 sts, rep from * around — 18 sts. 

Round 6: *Work 2 sc in next st, 1 sc in each of the next 8 sts, rep from * around — 20 sts.

Round 7: *Work 2 sc in next st, 1 sc in each of the next 9 sts, rep from * around — 22 sts.

Round 8: Work 1 sc in each st around — 22 sts.

Round 9: *sc 2 tog, 1 sc in each of the next 3 sts, sc2tog, 1 sc in each of the next 4 sts, rep from * 1 more time — 18 sts.

Round 10: *sc 2 tog, 1 sc in each of the next 2 sts, sc2tog, 1 sc in each of the next 3 sts, rep from * 1 more time — 14 sts.

**At this point, fill with stuffing or yarn scraps to desired density, but take care not to overstuff.**

Round 11: *sc 2 tog, 1 sc in next st, sc2tog, 1 sc in each of the next 2 sts, rep from * 1 more time — 10 sts.

Round 12: sc 2 tog around — 5 sts.

Fasten off, leaving a 6-in. tail. Use tail to weave in and out of sts from Round 12, pull to close up circle (Planet June has an awesome tutorial for finishing off amigurumi pieces). Weave in end. This is the bottom of the egg.

    These are adorable! It seems since I’ve learned how to crochet everything crochet made is that much more adorable! Will probably be trying this pattern out, if I can find the time before Easter. Thanks for sharing!
