Crochet Easter Eggs

Crochet Easter Eggs are a quick fun holiday project and a great way to use up both acrylic and cotton kitchen scraps. There are plenty of free patterns out there if you search. There are simple eggs like these and beautiful decorative eggs.

It had been a few years since I'd made the eggs and I experimented with a few patterns and finally pulled up the last blog entry I made talking about making Easter Eggs to find out what pattern I had used. Sure enough it sent me back to Amigurumi World: Seriously Cute Crochetbecause I like the larger sized simple eggs for kids. Made with vareigated kitchen cotton or acrylic scraps they make fun decorations or Easter toys. I know several of the ones I've made over the years have ended up in some rousing Easter games. They can be used in Egg hunts and toss games and unlike the plastic or other decorative eggs they don't break apart or hurt when they get tossed at someone.

I know some people like to crochet covers for the plastic eggs, but I prefer not to worry about the plastic cracking inside when the eggs get a little rough treatment. When I stuff them the worst that happens is they get squished. Occasionally the dogs chew through one when they get left on the floor and I have to replace it, but I don't have to worry about plastic shards coming out and hurting anyone.

Wow, I've never seen crocheted eggs before and obviously have never tried them either. I love this idea!
