Every year on Easter Sunday morning we do an Easter Egg hunt in the lounge room. (Even though my boys are 22 & 25 yo and past this little kids game, they still love the family and competitive race to find the most).
This year a bit different since we can’t all be together in the living room on Sunday. I made these crocheted eggs. Not the same as a “hunt” but still feeling the family love.
Crochet Egg Pattern
ch = chain dc = double crochet ss= slip stitch sts = stitches tr = treble tog= together
Make a magic loop (slip ring)
Round 1: 2ch, 7dc into ring, pull to close ring, ss in top ch of 2ch. (8)
Round 2: 3ch, tr in chain below, 2tr in each of the 7sts, ss in top of 3ch. (16)
Round 3: 3ch, 2tr in the next st, [1tr in next st, 2tr in next st] 7 times, ss in top of 3ch (24)

Round 7: 3ch, 2tr tog in next 2 sts, [1tr in next st, 2tr tog in next 2 sts] 7 times, ss in top of 3ch (16)
Push in some stuffing until full
Round 8: 3ch, 1tr in next 1 st, 2tr tog in next 2sts, [1tr in next 2sts, 2tr tog in next 2 sts] 3 times, ss in top of 3ch (12)

Push in more stuffing to fill the cavity. Fasten off, leaving a tail long enough to make gather sts through last round. Pull tail until closed and tie off. Pass remaining tail through the cavity and out, trim.
