Little Egg Friends! Free Amigurumi Egg Crochet Pattern for Easter

Hi friends! Easter is quickly approaching, and I’m so excited to share this simple and fun egg amigurumi pattern with you. This pattern is an amazing stash buster and it works up really quickly. I am a slow crocheter, but I can still make one in under 30 minutes (uninterrupted).

I made these in preparation for the egg hunt (and any future egg hunts) that we will be doing with my daughter. The plan is to have her find these little egg friends, then trade them in for candy/chocolate. This way, we can extend the fun without giving her too much candy.

To make them a little more fun, I decided to add little shakers to a few of them. These would be really fun with squeakers in them too!

Yarn I Used

I used Brava Speckle yarn from Knit Picks for my eggs and I love the way they turned out; the yarn gives it a dyed egg look. I love using variegated yarns, because you never know what design you’ll end up with, and I think that’s perfect for something simple like this.

You can use any yarn you want for this egg, just make sure to adjust the size of your hook accordingly. Like I said, it’s a great stash buster, so use up the little bits of yarn you have sitting around in your yarn shelf. Or you can switch up the colours every few rounds for a painted egg look.

TERMINOLOGY

st(s): stitch(es)
ch: chain
sl st: slip stitch
sc: single crochet
inc: two single crochet in one stitch
dec: invisible decrease- single crochet two stitches together through the front loops only
(…) x #: repeat anything in the parenthesis however many times the number indicates
[#]: total number of stitches for that row
#sc/inc: one sc/inc in the following # stitches

THINGS YOU NEED

Optional:

Safety eyes are not recommended for little kids/babies, so if you are planning to make these for a child, make sure to sub out the eyes for embroidered eyes instead. My daughter doesn’t chew on her toys, so we’re comfortable giving these to her.

Other options for customization include (but are not limited to) embroidery, beads, sequins, etc. The possibilities are endless!


Notes & Guides

This pattern is worked in continuous rounds unless otherwise stated. Mark the first stitch of the round with a stitch marker to help keep track of where the beginning of the round is.

Closing the Hole To close the hole, fasten off and thread the yarn tail onto a darning needle. Insert the needle under the front loop of the next stitch and pull through. Repeat with the rest of the stitches, then pull on the tail to close the hole. Weave the tail into the centre of the hole to hide the tail.

I am working with the x-stitch (yarn under/yarn over single crochet). If you are working a standard sc, go down a hook size.

    Love your patterns. I always give you credit because you work hard to make them and I know that. I’m making the Wizard of Oz series right now for my daughter who is turning 45 next month. Thanks again
