Crochet Easter Egg Kits

We went to Germany for the first time about 4 years ago, it was early April and many of the houses were decorated with the most beautiful Easter decorations. There were painted eggs hanging from trees and lovely mossy wreaths with ribbons and bows on the front doors. I totally fell in love with this tradition of decorating for Easter and have been collecting my own bits and bobs over the last few years.

Its great that here in the UK we are slowly adopting this lovely tradition of decorating - if not for Easter then perhaps the arrival of the Spring. Its freezing here in London today - we have had snow and strong winds, the heating is turned up high and the thick duvets are still on the beds - but hopefully warmer Spring weather is not too far round the corner and Easter is only a few weeks away.

I designed some small crochet eggs for the current edition of Simply Crochet Magazine and they have also featured the larger version which I designed for JANIE CROW. The design is available in kit form and they come in 3 colour ways - blue, bright & pink. Each kit contains 6 shades of yarn, a length of ribbon, a styrofoam egg and of course the pattern. The egg measures approx 14cm from top to bottom & has a 14.5cm diameter and costs £7.50 plus P&P - the kit does not include the 3mm crochet hook needed.
