The Easter egg crochet patterns we’ve spotted on Craftsy lately are bright, colorful and just dying to hang out on our kitchen tables. There are plenty of crochet egg cozy patterns, too, in case your plain eggs get jealous and need a little dressing up.

Let me first point out that this adorable crochet Easter egg has zippers on them, so you can tuck whatever you’d like inside them, from Easter candy to the cute little chicks that also come as part of the pattern. You’ll also learn about embroidery stitches that you can embroider onto the eggs to make them even more decorative.

Easter egg crochet patterns don’t always involve eggs stuffed with fiber-fill. These wooden Easter eggs are covered in a beautiful pineapple lace pattern crocheted with thread. Designer Maralihan includes suggestions for treating the surface of wooden eggs before you cover them so that this decoration can be used year after year.
