These crochet Easter Bunny Eggs are perfect for your Easter decoration! I designed them to make an Easter garland for our home and you will be able to find my Bunny Eggs Easter garland in my next post.
Besides garland, you can use these Easter Bunny Eggs for any other embellishment – for table decor, hang them on your door or window or just use them as appliques.

- How to make an Extended Double Crochet (EDC)
The extended double crochet stitch is a taller variation of standard double crochet.
- Yarn over. Insert the hook into the next stitch, yarn over, and draw the yarn through the stitch. There are now 3 loops on the hook.
- Yarn over and draw the yarn through the first loop on the hook. There are now 3 loops on the hook.
- Yarn over and draw the yarn through 2 loops on the hook. There are now 2 loops on the hook.
- Yarn over and draw the yarn through the 2 remaining loops on the hook.
Make an adjustable ring,
Round 1. Ch 3 (counts as DC), 11 DC into the ring, draw the loop closed. To make it easier to do, first, untwist the tail, then pull the tail to draw the loop tightly closed. Sl St to 3rd Ch of beginning Ch-3 to join. Total – 12 DC.
Round 2. Ch 3 (counts as DC), DC in same place, 2 DC in each St around, Sl St to 3rd Ch of beginning Ch-3 to join. Total – 24 DC.

- Block your Easter Bunny Eggs as necessary.
2. Embroider the mouth, attach googly eyes. (For babies and small children items – embroider the eyes on).
You can also embellish your Bunny Egg with small crochet Bow. For this Bow, I used a small amount of cotton light weight #3 yarn.
I hope you enjoyed this crochet Easter Bunny Egg pattern!
