I have always wanted to crochet Easter Eggs amigurumi for the Easter and I am very happy to have made it this year. Since there are quite a number of free patterns of real size egg on the internet, I decided to design my own mini Easter eggs amigurumi instead. In fact, I have this idea after seeing some quail eggs on the grocery store’s racking – so small, so cute!
These Mini Amigurumi Easter Eggs are easy to crochet (with written pattern) and require only a small amount of yarns of various colors. Follow the crochet pattern and change yarn color at any round, remember to start the new color at the last yarn-over just before the new round of color.
Just in case you are interested in the bunny sachets as shown in the picture, here is the sewing pattern and tutorial.
