Easter Egg Crochet Pattern

Easter Egg Crochet Pattern

The weather is really starting to warm up and spring is almost here! Now I love me some play food and since Easter is right around the corner, I'm sharing this pattern for cute little crochet eggs. Done up in soft pastel yarn, these eggs make a sweet alternative to candy for an Easter basket!

These little eggs crochet up quickly and you can switch up the colors to fit any theme. You can even make them using brown yarn to make chocolate eggs. I did that and my brother told me they looked like little nuggets of poop. Whatever. They were still cute!

If you make some eggs of your own, tag your pics with #thepudgyrabbit or @thepudgyrabbit on Instagram, I'd love to see them!
