Easter Egg Rattle Crochet Pattern

This pattern goes right along with the Easter Egg Bag Pattern from a few days ago. I love all of the spring and Easter-themed items and these eggs are my FAVORITE. I started making them last year when we had 3 new babies in the family who could not partake in the delicious Easter candy but were perfectly suited for a cute little rattle. I have probably made 50 eggs since them. Most with rattle inserts but a few without (just stuffing) so feel free to omit the rattle and just make a cute Easter egg stuffy or decoration. Mix up colors and use that multicolored yarn that you just can’t figure out what to do with.. these eggs LOVE colors.

The pattern is so simple and quick to whip up. If you’d like to purchase an ad-free, printable pattern, you can click here.
