Crochet Easter eggs and basket pattern
Crochet Easter eggs are a fun and festive way to add a handmade touch to your Easter decorations. These colorful crochet eggs are easy to make and can be used for a variety of decorations, from hanging in your Easter tree to filling up baskets and vases.
Easter is my favorite holiday and I wanted to design something for it! Easter decor is all things precious like bunnies, tulips, chocolate, ducklings and those gorgeous decorated eggs. Easter crochet goes beyond crochet bunnies and spring inspired hats. The pastel colors inspired by the season in bloom always make me smile.
This crochet Easter set of eggs and basket can be a cheery home decor set on display for the whole Spring season.
An Easter egg alternative for 2023. Egg prices are very high right now so why not crochet some eggs and a basket to style them in. Make a beautiful holiday decoration for your living space.

The Easter eggs measure approximately 4 1’4″ high. They are a fun novelty size that lets you have more room to be creative with the coloring.

The farmhouse style basket measures 14″ L x 4″ W . I made the eggs from cotton yarn but I wanted the slight sheen of Red Heart soft yarn in the color biscuit to bring the basket to life.
There is a video tutorial to help you work through all the steps of the basket pattern – it is a bit unusual.
Materials needed to make these crochet Easter eggs and complimenting farmhouse style crochet basket

The pattern includes instructions how I made the striped egg, the tutti fruitti multi color dotted egg and the spike stitch two tone egg. You can opt to make solid color eggs all using the same basic egg design. Once you make one you may come up with ideas of your own and get creative with your colorwork.
The crochet Easter eggs can be worked up in a matter of hours. You can crochet the beautiful basket in a day depending on how much time you have to yourself. Plan to have a week to make the full set just working on pieces each evening during a favorite show or a long weekend.
Just be sure to take breaks because working with small pieces and tight stitches can cause fatigue. See my post about the ways to prevent crochet hand pain that no one is telling you so you can crochet longer pain free.
