Little Egg Crochet Pattern

I love making play food and these eggs were the first thing I ever crocheted. Simple and straightforward, they were easy to make and good for practicing my crochet and silly face making skills! If you're looking for a fun afternoon project, give these eggs a try!

These eggs crochet up quickly and you can switch up the colors to fit any theme. Done up in soft pastel yarn, these eggs make a sweet alternative to candy for an Easter basket or make them using brown yarn to make chocolate eggs. 

If you make some eggs of your own, share them with #thepudgyrabbit or @thepudgyrabbit on Instagram!
