Crochet Easter Egg Pattern

These little eggs are so easy to work up and are a great way to use up extra yarn. They can be put on your spring nature table, given as gifts or even added in your child’s basket. If you make enough of them maybe you can go on a hunt! You can do them all one color or you can keep changing yarn to make striped eggs.
Supplies Needed:
Extra Yarn
Play with Various Sized Crochet Hooks
Filling (wool is best)
Round 1: Ch 4, join with slip stitch to make a ring

Round 2: Make 6 sc inside the ring, join with slip stitch and add ring marker to help count rows
Round 3: *2 sc in next st, 1 sc in next 3 sts, rep from * around – the rest of the pattern will be worked in the round so you do not have to join with slip stitch at the end of each row… use stitch marker to gauge when to start next round.
