Here is everything you need to know about my egg crochet pattern.
These crocheted eggs are a great introduction to crocheting 3-D and amigurumi pieces.
I designed this pattern very carefully to produce the perfect eggy shape. In a small-scale pattern like this, the exact placement of every stitch counts.
The eggs can be made most successfully in any yarn that is not stretchy, ensuring the eggs will hold their shape when stuffed. The eggs in these pictures are mare in organic cotton.
Worked with a 3.5mm hook and DK (light worsted weight, Category 3) yarn, a finished egg is approximately 5.5cm or 2inches long – approximately the size of a large hen’s egg.
However, you can use the same pattern to make eggs any size you like. Here’s one I made in Twool rope, that is the size of an ostrich egg!
The pattern contains details on yarn and stuffing quantities.
Once completed, you can of course add further detail to your eggs, such as a hanging loop or stitched details.
I recommend this egg pattern for beginners at crochet – it’s a perfect pattern for learning to crochet in the round if you have only crocheted flat pieces. It is also a great pattern for practicing forming a smooth, dense crochet fabric in the round before embarking on more fiddly amigurumi patterns.
Like all my crochet patterns, the egg crochet pattern comes with my full support if you have any questions. Plus do take a look at other people’s reviews of this pattern on Etsy.

When I bought this kit, I didn’t know how to crochet. I learnt the required stitches through YouTube, then I found the pattern really easy to follow after getting the hang of it. When there was something I needed help with or didn’t understand, I messaged Claire. She replies really quickly and has been really helpful with detailed responses. I’ll definitely be a repeat customer for patterns or gifts in the future! In addition to above, I appreciate that everything is packaged in paper and zero plastic, and that everything is recyclable.XW – Nov 2022
