Hello, I'm just popping in today with a little Easter crochet pattern for you...

Free Crochet Pattern - Floral Easter Eggs | Lululoves Blog

I have been enjoying working on these sweet crochet eggs so much this past week. This is the kind of project that fuels my imagination and lets me go wild with embellishments. They are so quick and easy to make and are a perfect project for yarn scraps. I've been doing my usual trick of experimenting with lots of different weight yarns, even using two yarns held together and I absolutely love the freedom of it. 

I'm going to use mine for a little Easter centrepiece for my table but you could even use these to hide around the house for an Easter treasure hunt. I love to make seasonal items that I can bring out year after year so I know these eggs will get a lot of love.

Leaves:

Make one large and one small

Large: 10ch, 3tr into fourth ch from hook, 1tr into each of next 3 ch, 1htr into next ch, 1dc into next ch, sl st into last ch, 1ch (you will now be working into the back loops of the foundation chain) sl st, 1dc, 1htr, 1tr into each of next 3 ch, 3tr into last ch, join with a sl st.

Small: 8ch, 3tr into fourth ch from hook, 1tr into next ch, 1htr into next ch, 1dc into next ch, sl st into last ch, 1ch (you will now be working the same stitches in reverse into the back loops of the foundation chain) sl st, 1dc, 1htr, 1tr, 3tr into last ch, join with a sl st.

Embellishments:

If you would like to decorate your flowers as I have, simply stitch some seed pearls or beads onto your flowers with a needle and thread BEFORE you attach them to your eggs. I used a selection of beads such as these and these.

Sew your flower and leaves in place on your eggs using a needle and thread in a similar colour to the yarn you’ve picked.
