Crochet Chevron Striped Easter Egg

We have about one more week until Easter which means you still have time to crochet a couple of these Chevron Striped Eggs! Don’t let the pattern intimidate you. I am adding in a lot of extra notes to help guide you through it. Once you do one, the next one is a breeze.

Materials:
– Worsted weight yarn in a main color and then an accent color for your stripe.
– Size G crochet hook
– Poly-fil stuffing
– Tapestry needle

Abbreviations:
Magic Ring Tutorial
Sl St = Slip Stitch
Ch = Chain
SC = Single Crochet
SC Decrease = Single Crochet Decrease
HDC = Half Double Crochet
DC = Double Crochet

Note about pattern: Always start in the same stitch as your chain unless otherwise noted. For instance, if I say “skip first stitch” or “start in second stitch” that means do NOT start in the same stitch as your chain and start the round in your next stitch. There is a method to this madness. Hopefully I have made this pattern as clear as possible!

Also, remember to weave in ends as you go!

If you need help determining which stitch is the same stitch as your chain, please see photos at the beginning of my owl hat pattern.

Chevron Egg Pattern:
Starting with your main color
Magic ring, ch 1 and make 10 SC in ring, join, ch 1
Rd 2: 2 SC in first stitch, SC in next, repeat around, join, ch 1 (15 SC)
Rd 3: 2 SC in first, SC in next 2, repeat around, join, ch 1 (20 SC)
Rd 4: 2 SC in first, SC in next 4, repeat around, join, ch 1 (24 SC)
Rd 5: *Sl St, SC, HDC, 3 DC in same stitch, HDC, SC, repeat from * around. Join to first Sl St.
Change to accent color (this will be the color of your chevron stripe)
Rd 6: in back loops only, skip first stitch (the slip stitch from previous round), *SC in next 3 stitches, 3 SC all in one stitch, SC in next 3 stitches, skip slip stitch, repeat from * around, join, ch 1
Rd 7: in back loops only, skip first stitch, *SC in next 3, 3 SC all in one stitch ( this should be the top of your previous chevron point), SC in next 3, skip 2 stitches, repeat from * around. Skip one stitch at the end. Join to first SC, ch 1 (So you skipped one stitch at the very beginning and one stitch at the very end making your “skip 2”)
Change back to main color
Rd 8: in back loops only, chain 3 (this will count as your first DC), HDC in next stitch, SC, Sl St in next 3 stitches, *SC, HDC, HDC, DC, HDC, SC, Sl St in next 3, repeat from * around. (So basically, going down the hill you make a SC and two HDC in a row and going up the hill you make only one HDC and then a SC) join to the top of your ch 3, ch 1
Rd 9: starting in second stitch, SC in each stitch around, join to first SC (35 SC). (You need to start in the second stitch to avoid a gap)
Rd 10: SC Decrease, SC in next 3 stitches, repeat around, join, ch 1
Rd 11: SC in each stitch around, join, ch 1 (28 SC)
Rd 12: SC Decrease, SC in next 2 stitches, join, ch 1
Rd 13: SC in each stitch around, join, ch 1 (21 SC)
Rd 14: SC Decrease, SC in next stitch, repeat around, join, ch 1
Rd 15: SC in each stitch around, join (14 SC)

Stuff with poly-fil.
SC Decrease until closed. Use your tapestry needle to completely close the hole and weave your ends in.

    This pattern is fantastic! Thank you for sharing! (And the picture step-by-step tutorial is awesome. I know cumbersome those can be to make [I've made several at my food blog {http://savorysundays.wordpress.com} and my project blog {http://smilekiddo.wordpress.com/101-in-1001/}], but I really appreciate you taking the time and making the effort to create it. Very helpful!) :)

    Hey There!

    We are having a Linky Party here http://ss1.us/a/jnsOpHTS and are looking for Easter projects. I found your crocheted Easter Egg on craftgawker and I think it is so cute! We are choosing 3 of our favorite projects, and those chosen will get $5 in Blitsy credits. Hopefully we see you at our party! :)

    I’m really impressed with your writing talents as neatly as with the format for your weblog. Is that this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Either way keep up the excellent quality writing, it is rare to see a nice blog like this one today..|
