Easter is almost here and you probably have all your decorating figured out by now, but if you feel like squeezing in another Easter project, this is a cute one.
This is not an "out of the box" pattern. It depends on your choice of yarn and the size of the egg.
You'll need these materials:
Easter egg (any kind of material and size)
Crochet-hook (that goes with the yarn of your choice)
Start with a magic ring.
R1: ch 2, dc into loop 5 times, join with sl st into second ch, pull loop closed – 6 sts
R2: ch 2, dc in same st, dc 2 in every chain, with sl st into second ch – 12sts
R3: increase in every 3rd ch
R3: increase in every 4th ch
Continue increasing until you reach the thickest part of the egg.
Now you start decreasing, and when you reach ¾ of the egg, you need to put the egg inside, before you finish the project.
You may need to measure the work during the process by putting the egg inside the crochet piece, to make sure it fits the egg. Otherwise you have to adjust by increasing or decreasing more or less.
Happy project and have a great Tuesday.
