Lion Brand Yarn has some wonderful free patterns for knit and crochet on their website. I love looking through the website for project ideas and the amigurumi patterns are great for using up yarn leftovers. I made these little eggs for my 6 month old niece for Easter. Each egg took about 30 minutes to make, or 45 minutes if my kids were distracting me. The best part is that I was able to make some of them out of yarn leftover from when I made my niece a baby blanket.
I’m now working on an assortment of eggs for my sister-in-law to decorate the dorm she manages next year. So far I have found that Caron Simply Soft with a size F hook and Naturally Caron Spa Yarn with a size E hook make the best eggs. Normally I prefer to work with Peaches ‘n’ Creme yarn but it came out too stiff for my liking. However it does make a very nice basket (but I’ll save that for another post).
