I don't know why, but every time I used to draw Easter eggs as a kid they were always zig-zaggy! I looked around for a zig-zaggy type design for an Easter egg and couldn't find one. After quite a few tries I finally realized that simple sometimes is best and went with just a plain shell stitch, very similar in design to my Stained Glass Cross Ornament. Pattern includes 2 sizes- one to fit a plastic or real hardboiled egg approximately 2 1/2 inches tall, and the second to fit a larger egg about 3 1/5 inches tall. Pattern is fashioned like a pouch, and is closed by gathering the opening together and tying off. This closing could be tied with a bow to make the egg removable if desired. All of the patterns found on Craftsy are available for instant download only. Once you have purchased a pattern it will be immediately added to your Craftsy account where you will have the ability to download it.

~Heritage Heartcraft, heirloom quality thread crochet by Cara Louise Reitbauer~ I have been crocheting since about 1974 at age 8 when my mother taught me with regular yarn and larger crochet hooks. A year or so later, she found a bag that had been her mother's which contained some gorgeous doilies her mother had made, along with some skinny crochet thread and some impossibly small steel crochet hooks. I fell in love on the spot, created my very first doily without any pattern by copying one of hers, using her hooks and her thread. I have been designing and crafting small articles such as doilies, coasters, snowflakes and angels ever since! (Although I do confess to using patterns too!) Every time I make something I feel a kinship with the grandmother I was never able to meet, and so her spirit is alive in me- all these years later, and still use her hooks, which are now over 60 years old! I've got sites all over the web!
