Crocheted egg cups - Warm bread, boiled eggs, hot cross buns, chocolate eggs... We are so happy that the cosy Easter days are coming up. And that also means it is time for our annual Easter project! What is more fun than making your own Easter decorations? Having an Easter brunch with the whole family was never this fun with your own decorated Easter table. We crocheted cuddly egg cups in bright, pastel colours to cheer up the already lovely event. Everyone should get his eggs like this, right?! Continue reading for the free crochet pattern.
To make these lovely egg cups we used the yarn ByClaire Nr. 1. Not only is this yarn very suitable to crochet these egg cups, it is available in lovely soft Easter colours. This cotton crochets easily, feels soft and does not split while using. To get completely into the Easter mood we picked pastel shades, but nobody's stopping you to go for more funky cheerful colours. There is plenty of choice, so style your egg cup in your own taste! Now let's continue with showing you how we did it.
