Do you ever see a craft that was popular in elementary school and a new crochet designs springs into your mind? That is exactly what happened to me a couple weeks ago, I immediately sat down and designed the Easter Egg Pocket with a Bunny or Chick Crochet Pattern.
Do you remember these cute paper weaving and cutting crafts from grade school? This is what was the inspiration behind the latest Easter pattern design.
I have fond memories of coming up with the best color combinations and then coloring so carefully to make the cute animals. As I sat down with my scrap yarn (which is a perfect way to use up all those leftover skeins) I fell in love with the egg pocket and cute animals.
Easter Egg Pocket Design
I love the weave look with the different colors of yarn. It just reminded me of a striped Easter Egg in spring colors. Immediately, I knew what stitch I needed to use to create this look and I already have a video tutorial of it! It is a basic block stitch that I used in my FREE Rock the Block Blanket that you can find by clicking HERE.
Crocheting this block stitch is so fun to see the weave created through the various rows. The pattern walks you through all the color changes and shape of the egg. The pocket can be made in a single color, or just 2 for a quilted look (see cream and teal sample) or add lots of colors for an Easter Egg look.
Bunnies & Chicks
After the Egg Pocket was completed I wanted a quick and simple bunny and chick pattern. The idea was to use the egg pocket as a pouch that it will slide inside of. After making several bunnies and chicks I saw how cute they turned out. Loving all the different pastel colors as they laid out, my daughter said the animals looked like sprinkles which she loves.
