I have always loved decorating for Easter, and easy Crochet Bunny Easter Egg covers are so fun and easy to crochet. I had seen a photo of these type of covers and I searched but couldn’t find a pattern. Since working in rounds to cover the base of a plastic egg didn’t seem that challenging I went ahead and tried a few different designs. This one just seemed easiest.
I know sometimes it’s hard to find beginner level projects. These little Easter egg covers are easy and work up really fast. I used only basic stitches. If you can chain, single crochet, half double crochet and magic circle you can make these. I have even uploaded a free YouTube video tutorial if you prefer. Some people are visual learners and prefer to see a video. I totally get it, I love watching videos too. The link for the video tutorial is at the end of this post.
For those of you who would like the written pattern here it is:
