TUTORIAL - Easter Eggs - CROCHET
And I have loads of yarn and a bunch of plastic filler eggs in various colors. Hmm...
Well, here is what I came up with: I Christo-style crochet-covered a few of these eggs.
And here is how I did it:
Row 1: Cast on 8 and close to a ring.
Row 2: Cast 3, double-crochet one. *Cast 3, double-crochet 2*. Repeat from * to *. So, you are double-crocheting 2 into each cast from the previous row.
Then, Cast 7 and single-crochet one on the 2 casts from the previous row. Repeat.
Cast 1, * onto the 7 casts from previous row: single-crochet 3, cast 2 and single-crochet 3*. Repeat from * to *. It starts getting narrower now.
Cast 3, double-crochet one, *onto the 2 casts from the previous row: double-crochet 2, cast 3*. Repeat from * to *.
Cast 1. *On the 3 casts from previous row, single-crochet 2, cast 4, single crochet 2*. Repeat from * to *.
Now put the egg in and start crocheting around it.
* Cast 3, double-crochet one onto the single-crochets from the previous row*. Repeat from * to *.
Cast 1. *Onto the double-crochets from the previous row, single-crochet.
* Close by single-crocheting every other of the single-crochets from previous row.
To hang them, cast 30, close ring.
Cast off. Start decorating.
