Crochet Egg Amigurumi Pattern

Posted on Last updated: /

I have always wanted to crochet egg amigurumi for Easter, and I am pleased to have made it this year. Since there are quite many free crochet patterns of real-sized eggs on the internet, I decided to design my own mini amigurumi Easter eggs instead. As a matter of fact, I have this idea after seeing some quail eggs on the grocery store’s racking – so small, so cute!

Why are Easter eggs colorful? Perhaps you can find the answer and its history here. Easter eggs mean egg hunt, colorful egg, chocolate egg, and a fun activity during Easter for kids. And mostly, Easter eggs are in the form of dyed real eggs, chocolate in the shape of eggs and wrapped in colorful wrappings, and plastic toy eggs stuffed with candies. You will only find this colorful amigurumi egg out of yarn in those who can crochet; it sure is a piece of unique home decor.

This Mini Egg amigurumi pattern is easy to crochet, and it requires only a small amount of yarns of various colors. You may use up your left-over stashed yarns from the previous project to whip-up various sizes of the colorful mini amigurumi easter egg. If you found the color of the eggs to look familiar…. you are right. The yarns are the leftover from the yo-yo puff hat and the crochet granny square halter top I crochet for my daughter.

Besides yarns, you will need a crochet hook, I used a 3 mm hook size for this yarn. Another material you will need is the polyester fiberfill to stuff the eggs. For the tools, a tapestry needle and a pair of scissors are all you need.

Follow the egg pattern and change the yarn color at any round. Remember to start the new color at the last yarn-over just before the new round of color. We have a guide for Crochet For Beginners, feel free to read up for more info if needed.
