Easter egg free pattern

Yeah blogger is now hopefully working and I can get the first of the free patterns up. This is for these really sweet Easter eggs. Get making these now cause you'll need 4 for a I've got pattern I've got coming up of a basket for them to go in with an Easter bunny to look after them.

Easter egg pattern
You will need
DK weight yarn mixed colour or self patterning work best
3.5mm crochet hook
Wool needle
Toy stuffing

St Stitches (this is shown at the end of every row so you know how many stitches you should have at the end of the round)
CH chain
SC single crochet
INC single crochet increase (2 single crochet into the stitch)
DEC single crochet decrease (single crochet the next 2 stitches together by inserting yarn into the next stitch, draw through a loop, insert hook into the next stitch, draw through a loop, yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook) *I like to give the yarn a little tug after doing this stitch to make sure the decrease is nice and tight which is important cause these guys are so little*
() around Brackets show an action that is to be repeated .

* A note on starting out. You can use magic ring or if you can do what I do which is make sure the ball of yarn is to your right and the cut end in you left hand, make a loop, chain up 2 then work your starting round in the second chain from hook. It’s up to you there is no one right or wrong way to do it *

  1. Your Eggs look great. I love how they are rounder than most of the other patterns I've seen.

  2. Success! A beautiful egg! Thanks for the great pattern!
