Easter Eggs

These free crochet patterns will teach you how to crochet an Easter egg.  I’ve chosen these ones specifically because they all have different designs.

1. Big Crochet Easter Egg

Cosy Rosy

Sometimes a small egg just won’t do …

This big free crochet Easter egg pattern is made with super chunky yarn so it works up quickly.

There’s a video tutorial to help you get to grips with the colour changes and increases/decreases.

It would look fab as a centerpiece in your Easter display!

  • Skill level: Beginner
  • Recommended yarn: Bernat Baby Blanket Sparkle
  • Measurements: 15″  high and 8″ across the base (29.5″ around at the widest point)

This pattern is available to purchase as a PDF on Etsy.

2. Mini Crochet Easter Egg

Crafting Each Day

And on the other end of the scale …  mini eggs!

These quick and simple crochet mini Easter eggs work up super fast in sport weight (#2 fine), dk weight (#3 light) or worsted weight (#4 medium) yarn.

I think they would look great attached to a crochet chain and strung up over a fireplace mantel.  Thread fairy lights around the chain for added sparkle.

  • Skill level: Advanced Beginner
  • Recommended yarn: Use yarn from your stash
  • Measurements: one inch high and two inches circumference

You can purchase this pattern as a PDF on Ravelry.

3. Crochet Easter Eggs

Skip to my Lou

Instead of amigurumi, these fabulous crocheted easter eggs use the same technique as the granny square (but obviously in an oval shape).  Very clever!

If you enjoy working the granny square, have a browse of the different granny square bags in this free collection.

Perfect for an egg hunt – hide them around your home and garden (my sons, in their late 20’s, still love an egg hunt!  Lots of years of use …).

  • Skill level:  Easy
  • Recommended yarn: Cotton yarn (2-6 different colours) – superfine (sock, fingering, baby), fine (sport, baby) or DK, light worsted

4.  Crochet Easter Egg Applique

Golden Lucy Crafts

Crocheted in two rounds, it won’t take you long to whip up a few of these Easter egg appliques!

I think they would look great:

  • on kid’s clothes
  • stringing them together for a bunting
  • sewing two together and add a loop of thread to string from a tree or shrub
  • glueing onto card with an Easter message for family and friends
  • accessorizing blankets, hats, or any of your crochet makes

What other ideas do you have?

  • Skill level: Easy
  • Recommended yarn: DK Cotton
  • Measurements: 1-1/8″ (3 cm) tall

This pattern is also available as a PDF on Etsy.

5. Amigurumi Easter Egg

Zeens and Roger

There are quite a few Amigurumi Easter egg patterns.  Why did I choose this one?  I love how the designer has embroidered the eggs. 

French knots are used for the flower centres and a few chain stitches for petals and leaves.  There’s a video tutorial to help you embroider your eggs.

Egg Cozies

These crochet Easter patterns are so cute!  I want to crochet all of them …

6.  Easter Bunny Egg Cozy

See what I mean!  How cute are these bunnies!  They won’t take long to finish either.

You’ll need to sign up for a free account to access this free pattern.

7.  Bunny Crème Egg Cover

Hooked on Patterns

Do you have some chunky/bulky yarn in your stash? You’ll also need a small amount of DK yarn for the eyes and nose in this free pattern.

Crochet tip: this pattern works in continuous rounds so use a stitch marker or piece of thread/yarn to keep track of the rounds.

These bunny crème egg covers whip up in no time and I think would make great gifts to colleagues, friends and family.

8. Crochet Egg Cozy for Easter

Zween

The body of the cozy is worked from top to bottom in joined rows.  The bunny ears are worked from top to bottom and sewn on to the body.  Finally, you’ll make the pompom and sew on for the tail.

If you don’t have a pompom maker, download this printed template and glue to cardboard to make one (there are several sizes of pompom on the template)

I think those fluffy bunny tails finish this design off perfectly.  What do you think?

9. Bunny and Carrot Crème Egg Covers

Bunny egg covers with big ears and feet
The Crochet Tree

This pattern includes two ways of putting the bunny together. The all-in-one method or making the ears and body separately, which is slightly less fiddly. 

You could try both ways and then continue making the one that works best for you.

I thought the carrot cosy was a little bit different.  Probably not for everyone though (after all, they’re not as cute as the bunnies!).

  • Recommended yarn: Stylecraft Special DK

This pattern is a free PDF via Lovecrafts.

10. How to Crochet Egg Covers

A dinosaur, bunny and unicorn egg covers
HobbyCraft

Not all egg covers are Easter themed … this pattern includes how to crochet a dinosaur and unicorn (as well as a bunny) egg cover.

If you want to encourage your kids to eat boiled eggs (I’m sure they don’t need any motivation to eat crème eggs 🙂 ) I think these are fab.

This pattern is worked in a spiral so it is essential to mark each round.

Clear step-by-step instructions guide you through the whole process.  Great for beginners.

11. Carrot Egg Cozies

3 carrot shaped egg cozies
Once Upon a Cheerio

You’ll need worsted/Aran weight yarn to make these carrots and if using traditional colours, in green and orange.

These egg cozies are designed with a drawstring top so you can close them up once your crème egg is inside (they make cute little pouches too!).

Crochet Patterns for Easter Baskets

This section of the collection has free patterns for a classic Easter basket, flower Easter basket, mini egg basket, bunny basket and a small basket (perfect for all year round, not just for Easter eggs!)

12. Classic Easter Basket

Basket crocheted in pastel colours filled with pastel coloured eggs
Yarn and Chai

I love how sturdy the handles are.  They are made with plastic canvas with yarn wrapped around (very clever).  The plastic canvas is also used inside the basket. There’s a video tutorial to show you how to do this.

The bulk of this basket is made with cotton, double stranded throughout. The white stripes around the basket were made with a small amount of #4 aran/worsted weight yarn.

13. Flower Easter Basket

Nana’s Crafty Home

I’ve chosen to add this pattern as I thought the flower buttons and surface crochet for the stems add something different to the usual crochet basket.

This basket also uses plastic canvas for the handle.

The basket works up quickly in bulky yarn with beginner friendly stitches – you only need to know how to single crochet (UK double crochet) for this one.

  • Recommended yarn: Loops & Threads Charisma
  • Measurements: 7” wide x 9” tall (including handle)

14. Mini Crochet Easter Eggs Basket

Hello Yellow Yarn

These cute mini baskets aren’t just for Easter.  I think they would make great wedding table decorations too, filled with sweets or petals/dried flowers!  And they only take about 15-20 minutes to make.  What do you think?

As well as written instructions, there’s a step-by-step picture tutorial.  Perfect if you’re new to crocheting.

  • Recommended yarn:  DK/Light Worsted (raid your stash!)

The basket can fit about 6 mini chocolate eggs or 1 plastic egg.

15. Easter Bunny Basket

Crocheted basket with the ears made into a handle and a bunny face embroidered on one side
Petals to Picots

Adorable!  Those long bunny ears look great as the handle.

The basket is worked in a continuous spiral.  Using a stitch marker to mark the first stitch in each round will keep you on track.

Instructions include which rounds to sew on/make the different parts of the rabbit’s face.

16.  Crochet Easter Basket

Basket with two sets of bunny ears and a bunny face embroidered on one side
Handy Little Me

With or without a handle, you’ll love showing off this easter basket.

Worked with two strands of cotton Aran/Worsted, not only will you be able to make this quickly (great if you’re looking for last minute Easter gifts!) but using single crochet (UK double crochet) stitches makes the easter basket great for beginners.

  • Recommended yarn: Rico Creative Cotton Aran
  • Measurements: base diameter = 5.5 inches / 14 cm ;  Height – 6 inches / 16 cm ;  Handle = Length – 16 inches / 41 cm  ;  Width – 2.2 inches / 6cm ;  Ears – 4 inches / 10 cm. Width – 2 inches / 5 cm

17. Easter Basket Small

The Happy Hooker

This is another small basket that I’ve chosen for this collection because I thought the shell/cluster stitches around the top of the basket gives a lovely finish … and it’s a basket you can use around your home at any time of the year.

If you use Aran/Worsted or even chunky instead of DK yarn, your basket will come out larger.  I’m thinking it would look great as a plant holder on a windowsill.

Your basket is made up with 13 rounds of double crochet (US single crochet) and 1 round of cluster trebles (US doubles).  The handle is crocheted separately and sewn on.

This pattern is written in UK crochet terms.

Crochet Patterns for Bunnies

Floppy eared, Amigurumi, Plush and a basic bunny for beginners.  I think you’ll love these adorable crochet bunnies as much as I do.

18. Crochet Bunny Rabbit

First time making a bunny? You need this pattern!

This free Amigurumi pattern and video tutorial will show you how to crochet a basic bunny.

Alongside the written instructions there are very clear photos to guide you too.

The designer has received a lot of feedback that this pattern works well for amigurumi beginners.

This pattern is also available to purchase as a PDF on Etsy.

19. Floppy Stuffed Bunny

1 Dog Woof

This bunny crochet pattern can be made in a variety of yarns for different sized bunnies.

The bunny pictured above is made with Lion Brand Homespun Thick and Quick. 

Changing the yarn to a DK or Aran/Worsted changes the size.  Simple.

If you choose a yarn like the Thick and Quick, where it can be difficult to see the stitches, the designer gives great tips on working with this yarn.

Children will LOVE snuggling up to this bunny.

20.  Small Long-Legged Bunny

Bunny ears up or down?  I think they both look fab.  And with this bunny pattern you get to choose!

If you’re a beginner at toy making, this free pattern has clear photos to help you with the techniques at every step.

If you’ve been crocheting toys for a while, you’ll whip this cutie up in no time.

  • Recommended Yarn: Drops Lima
  • Measurements: 15 cm (6″) tall from head to toe – 20 cm (8″) including straight ears

Moving on from the more traditional bunny, this Amigurumi crochet Easter bunny is full of character and pizazz (well I think so 🙂 ).

The free pattern is easy to follow with lots of photos to guide you making it perfect for beginners.

  • Recommended yarn: Fine Sport – 4ply
  • Measurements:  From ears to toes 30cm / 12 inches

Prefer to work from a PDF?  You can buy this pattern on Etsy.

Crochet Easter Chick

These Easter chicks would look fabulous on a wreath, strung together to make a garland, as Easter basket stuffers, as a toy for your little one or simply as an ornament on their own.

22.  Easter Chick with Egg or Bonnet

Peach Unicorn Designs

Three chicks in one with this free pattern! 

  1. Easter Chick
  2. Easter Chick with Bonnet
  3. Easter Chick in an Egg

This is another pattern that is suitable for a beginner.

  • Recommended Yarn:  Scheepjes Catona
  • Measurements: 10cm /4inches    (W) X 12.5cm /5inches   (H)

23.  Easter Chick Amigurmi

How cute is this little chick!  The colours are so bright and eye popping aren’t they.

Although this pattern is rated at a skill level of easy, it is a bit more involved.

There are tips throughout the pattern to help you be successful.

  • Recommended yarn: Alize Cotton

As well as the written pattern, this is available as a free PDF download.  Scroll down to the end of the instructions.

24. Amigurumi Spring Chicks

When you didn’t think a chick could get any cuter …

This free pattern includes photos for the techniques.

  • Recommended yarn: Capri Yarn
  • Measurement: 2.5 inches wide and 3 inches tall

They’re so easy to whip up and make the perfect little amigurumi toys for Easter baskets.

25.  Chick Easter Egg

Elisa’s Crochet

The last pattern in this section combines the shape of an Easter egg with the features of a chick.  Pretty cool don’t you think!  (there’s also a bunny and a sheep).

This is another easy pattern that you’ll be able to make in no time. 

I think these would be fab for an Easter Egg Hunt for your little ones as well as for decorations.

  • Recommended yarn:  DK
  • Measurements:  3.5” x 2.5”

Buy the PDF pattern which includes the chick, bunny and sheep.

Easter Home Décor

Use your makes from these patterns to brighten your spaces indoors to welcome in the Spring.  In this section you’ll find a bunny garland, flower garland, bunny wall hangings (tapestry and intarsia techniques) and a bunny pot holder.

26.  Easter Bunny Garland

Knotted Nest

If you’re looking for ideas for traditional themes, these are gorgeous! 

The crochet bunnies strung together would look good all through Spring.

Fast to make, crochet them in colours to suit your décor (the pastel colours would look great in a nursery).

If you’re a beginner, you’ll love the photo tutorial.

Worked in Aran/Worsted weight yarn, if you don’t have toy stuffing to hand, I think these would also look great sewn together without stuffing.

  • Recommended yarn: Caron Simply Soft
  • Measurements: bunny measures approximately 6” – finished garland is approx. 70″

This pattern is also available as a PDF on Etsy.

27.  Spring Wall Hanging

Elisa’s Crochet

This cutie is worked using the crochet tapestry technique. 

(You’ll find an example of a crochet tapestry heart in my tote bag pattern).

Working with more than one colour to form the bunny and background, the unused yarn is carried along the row so you can pick it up when needed. 

This project uses three colours and is rated intermediate skill level, however if you’re a confident beginner and looking for a challenge, have a go! 

In this free pattern, the bunny’s cheeks and the flower are crocheted separately and then sewn on.

There are clear charts to help you and you can buy a PDF of this pattern on Etsy.

  • Recommended yarn: DK
  • Measurements: 7” x 10.5” (17 x 27 cm)

28. Bunny Wall Hanging

Ned and Mimi

This crochet pattern uses the intarsia technique.

What this means is that the unworked yarn isn’t carried across the row (as in the tapestry crochet pattern above) but is picked up each time you work on the new block of colour.

The bunny wall hanging is a great introduction if you haven’t worked this way before.

If you haven’t changed colours before the designer has included a photo tutorial to help you.

I think this is a lovely challenge for confident beginners.  And if you’re a more seasoned crocheter looking for a smaller project to give you a break from larger projects, you’ll enjoy this one too.

  • Recommended Yarn:  Stylecraft Special DK – any yarn will work though so raid your stash
  • Measurements:  13”  (W) X 14.5” (L)  without tassels

This pattern is also available to buy on Etsy.

An easy way to brighten up inside is with a wall hanging. Have a browse in this collection of free wall hanging patterns for inspiration.

29. Tiny Crochet Flowers Garland

Blue Star Crochet

Looking for a quick make to spruce up your living space?  This crochet flower garland might just be perfect for you.

Easy and quick, you’ll be stringing up your garland in no time. 

I think this would look great crocheted in different colours.

You could string it up inside or outside in the summer too.

There’s a link on the free pattern for a video tutorial for the flowers (made in only 2 rounds) plus how to make them into the garland.

  • Recommended yarn:  Hobbii Acacia Yarn (DK) – or use whatever you have in your yarn stash!
  • Measurements: finished garland measures 2.75 meters – flower 4 cm in diameter

There is a paid pattern on Etsy (PDF).

30.  Tapestry Crochet Easter Bunny Potholder

Raffamusa Designs

A side view of a bunny looks great here.  It’s a very clear image.

Carrying the yarn along the row gives a dense and thick fabric that works well for this type of project.

The written pattern includes a link to a guide that takes you step-by-step through the flat tapestry crochet technique.

The pot holder is worked in rows and the border in rounds.

  • Recommended yarn:  Aran/Worsted Cotton
  • Measurements: 6.2” (15.7 cm) by 6.3” (16 cm)

The paid pattern includes colour charts as well as the written instructions.

I hope you’ve been inspired for your Easter crochet.

Happy crocheting!
