Egg Collection + Chick

Are you in need of some Easter decoration? Here's the perfect pattern for you! With this pattern you can crochet whole eggs, egg-halves with jagged edges and chicks.

Eggs and Chicks are fast and easy to crochet. Whether single-colored or multicolored... let your imagination run free. :)

The Rainbow-Egg was inspired by the Umizoomi episode „Umi Egg Hunt“. My kids are huge fans and now so proud of their own Rainbow-Eggs. :)

You'll find the following patterns/instructions within the Egg-Collection: - whole Egg with round bottom - whole Egg with flat bottom - top Egg-Half - bottom Egg-Half with round bottom - bottom Egg-Half with flat bottom - details on color-changes for whole Eggs (Rainbow-Egg) - Chick - details on color-changes for Egg-Halves - details on embroidering flowers/stars onto whole Eggs

Skill Level:

The size depends on your gauge, chosen type of yarn and crochet hook size. I'm using Puppets Lyric yarn (8/8, DK/Light-Worsted) from Coats and a 3 mm hook. With that I get the following size/s: 6.5 – 7.0 cm (Egg) & 3.5 cm (Chick)

used Techniques
* magic ring
* chain
* single crochet
* double crochet
* slip stitch
* increase and (invisible) decrease
* crocheting in back loops (instructions included)
* crocheting back and forth in rows
* crocheting in continuous rounds (rounds are not joined)
* changing yarn-color (instructions included)
* basic sewing (sewing on body-parts, closing openings etc)
* basic embroidery (i.e. eyes, mouth etc)

The pattern is very detailed. Almost every single step/stitch is explained in words and pictures. Special characteristics are explained step-by-step (i.e. the color changes). You see, nothing can go wrong! :)

1) The pattern is mine. Do not (re)sell this pattern, including translations to other languages and modifications; do not redistribute, including publishing on the internet. 2) The finished figure/item is yours. :) Feel free to sell the finished products, handmade by yourself (no mass production). I'd love it if you would refer to my pattern/shop when doing so. Thank you! :)
