An eco-friendly crochet kit to make a set of six beautiful eggs in organic cotton.
Crocheting these eggs is a great introduction to 3-D and amigurumi crochet and the kit makes a great sustainable gift for a crafter.
- fully-illustrated pattern printed on recycled paper
- organic cotton yarn in six colours
- 100% natural British sheep’s wool stuffing
- 3.5mm crochet hook (optional)
- blunt-tipped yarn needle
The eggs are made using a 3.5mm (E-4) crochet hook. I offer lovely bamboo crochet hooks by Pony if you don’t have one or are giving the kit as a gift.
The finished eggs are approximately 5.5cm or 2¼” long.
The contents and packaging of all my crochet kits aims to be as eco-friendly as I can possibly make it. This kit is plastic-free.
- box – 70% recycled, reusable and recyclable.
- ball bands, box labels – 100% recycled paper, recyclable.
- pattern – 100% recycled paper, recyclable.
- tissue – 100% recycled, recyclable.
- business cards, tags, etc – handmade from greeting cards, cereal packets, etc, recyclable.
The carded wool stuffing is a natural product. It is scoured and clean, but may still include the odd bit of leaf or straw.
🟩 This pattern is suitable for those just beginning to crochet. It only uses th UK dc / US sc stitch and its decrease. It’s a perfect project for practising working in the round and preparing for more complex amigurumi projects.
Those who have never crocheted before might be interested in my Crochet Starter Kit.
The crochet pattern for these eggs is also available as an instant download if you prefer.
Customising Your Kit
Choose whether to include the lovely bamboo crochet hook in the required size in the kit.
Choose whether you’d prefer the French, UK or US crochet version of the pattern – if you’re not sure, please contact me and I’ll help you choose.
If you’d like the kit sent directly to someone else as a gift, that’s no problem, just choose this option when checking out and I will remove price details from the package. You can also include a gift message at checkout for free.
If you’d like to have the kit gift-wrapped, please tick the option above. I use 100% recycled tissue and pretty paper tape (varies seasonally), with a 100% recycled cotton tie and an up-cycled cardboard tag to complete your eco-friendly gift.
