I have to share my new favorite way of decorating eggs … these pretty lace wraps! They are a quick, no mess way of creating charming Easter decor … and best of all you can use them again and again every year. For more free crochet Easter decor, check out my free Easter crochet patterns here.
Crochet Easter Pattern … Lace Wrap Egg Decor
Here’s what you will need:
- size 10 crochet thread
- 2 mm steel hook
- 7 small beads (I used 6/0 seed beads)
- scissors and sewing needle
Finished wraps measure approximately 5 in. × ¾ in. and should fit most extra large eggs.
Using a sewing needle, string all 7 beads onto crochet thread before beginning.
Ch 3, pull 1 bead up to hook and ch 1 enclosing the bead, *ch 5, pull next bead up to hook and ch 1 enclosing the bead, repeat from * 5 more times, ch 4 — 44 ch.
Round 1: Beginning in 2nd ch from hook, *work 1 sc, skip next 2 ch, 5 dc in next ch, skip next 2 ch, repeat from * 6 more times, work 3 sc in last ch; rotating piece to work across opposite side of beginning chain, **skip next 2 ch, 5 dc in next ch, skip next 2 ch, 1 sc in next ch, repeat from * 6 more times, work 1 sc in same st as last sc was made, join and fasten off — 88 sts.
Weave in ends with a sewing needle. Use removable glue dots to adhere wraps to hard boiled eggs (see supply links below).
