This cute free pattern was created and shared by the amazing Lalylala, the designer of the well-known Lalylala dolls and Beetles, Bugs and Butterflies amigurumi patterns.
Free Easter Egg amigurumi pattern
To view this free pattern in full, simply swipe through the instructions by clicking on the post below. You can copy the text into your notebook or an Evernote note to store it safely until you need it.
All you need for this simple pattern is:
- Two colours of yarn – you can use any weight you want even though the pattern calls for sport weight.
- Two safety eyes – you can also use black beads or make your own eyes by crocheting a small magic circle (with 6 sc)
- 2.5 mm crochet hook – this is perfect if you’re using DK (double knit) yarn, but if you want to use 4ply yarn, you can drop the hook size down to 2 mm.
- Tapestry needle
- Toy stuffing
- Stitch marker
This pattern is worked in true amigurumi style – continuous rounds – so you don’t chain and slip stitch to join your rounds. Use a stitch marker to mark the first stitch of each new round so that it’s easier to keep track.
This is a quick and easy pattern that’s suitable for beginners. If you don’t feel comfortable making colour changes, you can skip them altogether and simply make your eggs in one colour.
Have fun! Keep an eye on the blog for more great free amigurumi patterns for Easter coming soon!
