So, if you’re anything like me, all your holiday crafts seem to go unfinished until the very last second. You have a great idea months in advance, you feel super on top of things, and yet, the holiday sneaks up on you. Or maybe that’s just me.

 

I’ve been dreaming up these wooden crochet eggs for a while now, and am here to share the pattern with you! It can be a bit tricky to crochet around an object at first, but once you get the hang of it, it’s a breeze. I promise! The real trick is being a little flexible in the pattern, adding or skipping a stitch at times to make the crochet work really fit around your egg… Or perhaps adjusting your tension, making the stitches tighter or looser. If you’ve never crocheted around an object before, you can find some step-by-step photos here.

This pattern is for the 3-inch medium sized wooden eggs (pink and blue in the photos). If your eggs are bigger or smaller, you may need to add or subtract a few rows accordingly. Like I said, it’s all about being flexible. 😉

I promise you that that pattern looks more intimidating than it actually is. If you can chain, double and treble crochet, you can easily tackle this pattern! I think these make the sweetest handmade Easter decorations, personally. What do you think? Will you whip some up for your coffee table or the Easter basket of a loved one this weekend?

 

Happy crocheting, friends! ♥♥

 

**Note: The green egg pictured is a 2-inch white egg. The pattern is very similar, but largely improvised.
