Crochet Easter Egg pattern and Tutorial

Crochet Easter Egg pattern and Tutorial

Easter is the perfect time to get crafty, so here is an Easter egg pattern including a video tutorial to keep your hands busy. I love seeing these made in different colours so be sure to tag me if you make one!

Unsure of the differences between UK and US terms? Need a refresher on how to do your stitches? In my ‘How to crochet: A handy reference guild’ EBook I help you with all of these terms and you can always have them to hand! You will also get exclusive access to free video instructions.
