Crocheted Easter Eggs Pattern | | #crochet #Easter #eggs #decor #holiday

Colored Easter eggs are a staple of the season.  This easy egg pattern will help you crochet up a basketful to adorn your holiday table.  And you can do so many variations from this basic pattern.  Join the rounds and change colors with each round for a striped egg, add a row of spike stitches for a pretty design … the options are limitless.

Crocheted Easter Eggs Pattern

Here’s what you need:

  • worsted weight cotton yarn
  • G hook
  • tapestry needle, stitch marker, polyester fiberfill stuffing

Click here to reference the Crochet Abbreviations Chart.


Add this pattern to your Ravelry library.


Note:  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 prefer to join rounds instead and start the next round with a chain 1.


Make a magic ring (as an alternative to the magic ring, you can ch 4 and join with a slip stitch in furthest chain from hook to form a ring).

Foundation Round: Ch 1 (does not count as st), work 8 sc into ring, 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 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.

    Beautiful! Perfect for a Grandmother like myself who doesn’t have kids young enough to “color” eggs with any more! I can’t wait to do these!!

    Adorable! I’m made two of them already 😀 I don’t have any fiberfill, so I improvised. 1 leg of a pair of pantyhose stuffs an egg just right! I’m going to experiment with the next one. I’m going to use some scented oil on a cotton ball and bury it in the middle of the hosiery to make a scented egg.

      Wow!! What great ideas!! Thanks for sharing them. I am so glad you are enjoying the pattern 🙂

    I have made eggs similar to these for years. Great for little ones, who really are too young for eggs, they can have special eggs just for them. Gave some to a neighbor for their infant’s first Easter.

    Love these – can’t wait to begin them. One question: must I use cotton rather than acrylic worsted yarn?

    • Kara March 24, 2014 at 5:59 pm #

      You can definitely use worsted. I just preferred cotton for this 🙂
