This last minute crochet Easter egg cover is made with the granny stitch using a large hook for a quick and satisfying result. The crochet covers are removeable, reusable, pack flat for storage and are a no dye option. I really wasn’t up for dyeing Easter eggs this year!..

This one pattern fits all. I mean, I used it for everything I could find at home, small, medium and large brown eggs from the mixed weight and sizes egg box from my fridge and some children’s polystyrene eggs.
When I got the white polystyrene eggs out, my 6-year-old daughter asked me if I was going to paint the eggs. I said that my crochet hook will be my paint brush and the yarn will be my paint. She thought about it for a moment and ran off to play ;D
There’s only 2 rounds and 4 short rows. There’s no color changing after each row, only one yarn end to weave in and no single crochet stitches to slow you down.
We’re going to create an opening or a slit a the back of the Easter egg cover to fit the eggs through. Later you’ll simply turn your eggs over so that they sit on the slit to hide it away. At the same time, the slits/ openings stabilise your eggs for your Easter displays and prevent them from rolling off.
You can have a look at my video to see them in greater detail and how I use them for various sized eggs. [link coming up]
Materials & Skills Needed
You only need to know how to make a slip knot, a chain, a single crochet (just one) and a double crochet for this tutorial, so it’s perfect for a beginner looking for an easy Easter project.
You will need: a 6 mm/ J crochet hook, some DK/ 3/light worsted /8 ply yarn and scissors. The YARN I used is Stylecraft Special DK – they have a great selection of colors.
