Crochet Easter Eggs
Every year I do an Easter project. This year I made some simple crochet Easter eggs. Many Easter eggs are crocheted with slip stitches. My crochet Easter eggs are made with single crochet stitches. This makes the eggs a little more uneven in shape, but they are much faster to make :-)
Yarn I used Muskat from Garnstudio for this project. This is a mercerized cotton yarn, which has a nice shine to it and it is a very affordable yarn, so you can buy many different colors for it. I used subdued colors for this project, but there are stronger colors available in this yarn type. This is a DK yarn. If you are unsure how to replace this yarn with another yarn type, please read my Tutorial how to substitute Yarn.
Wool roving for stuffing the eggs.
Hook 3,5 mm US: 4/E
