This is a quick-and-easy egg crochet pattern to whip up a bunch of eggs when you need Easter or Spring Solstice decorations in a hurry. Once I got the pattern down, they took me less than five minutes each. You can work them up in one color or several. They are great stash busters! And I really like that they have a “yolk.” 🙂

The pictures show the pattern being worked from left to right because I am left handed. This pattern is symmetrical, so it can be worked either left to right or right to left and achieve the same results.
ch 5; j r with sl st to form a loop. Round 1: ch 3; dc 8 in loop; j r with sl st and round 2: 2 sc in first s; loosely sc in each st; j r with sl st Halfway through round 3… ch 1; 2 sc in same st, 3 sc each in next 2 sts, 1 hdc, 2 dc in next st, 1 dc, 2 trc in next st The other half of round 3… 2 trc, 1 dc in next st, 2 dc, 1 hdc in next st, 3 sc each in next 3 sts, j r with sl st Stitching around the yolk: tie on; sl st in each sp around yolk. Grab the yarn on the wrong side of the egg through to the right side… … and then pull through the loop on the right side, working all the way around the yolk. All done! Purty if I do say so myself. So is this a great pattern or did I get egg on my face? Let me know! 🙂
