Easter Egg Pocket with Bunny & Chick Crochet Pattern

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.

St. Patrick’s Day Crochet Pattern Round

The feast of St. Patrick’s Day is nearly here and it is time to get your crochet on and whip up some lucky patterns for the occassion.

Every March 17, the United States becomes an emerald country for a day. Americans wear green clothes and quaff green beer. Green milkshakes, bagels and grits appear on menus. In a leprechaun-worthy shenanigan, Chicago even dyes its river green.

However you plan to celebrate, I can guarantee that one or many of the below St. Patrick’s Day crochet pattern finds will warm up your home and get you ready for the big day.

St Patrick's Day Pattern Round Up

A few St. Patricks Day Facts According to History.com

  1. For several centuries, March 17 was a day of solemnity in Ireland with Catholics attending church in the morning and partaking of modest feasts in the afternoon.
  2. The party atmosphere (in America) only spread to Ireland after the arrival of television when the Irish could see all the fun being had across the ocean.
  3. For decades, Irish laws prohibited pubs from opening on holy days such as March 17. Until 1961, the only legal place to get a drink in the Irish capital on St. Patrick’s Day was the Royal Dublin Dog Show, which naturally attracted those with only a passing canine interest.
  4. The meal that became a St. Patrick’s Day staple across the country—corned beef and cabbage—was also an American innovation. While ham and cabbage was eaten in Ireland, corned beef proved a cheaper substitute for impoverished immigrants.

Crochet Cute Critters Amigurumi Review & Giveaway

I recently had the opportunity to review Repeat Crafters amazing new book, “Crochet Cute Critters: 26 Easy Amigurumi Patterns“. The book is set to release on August 20th, but you can pre-order it now. Upon reviewing the book, my first thought was, “these designs are all so dang cute!”

Cute Critters Crochet Book

But then, I opened the book and began to thumb through the first pages. Sarah went above and beyond and included written and photo tutorials for every step of crocheting amigurumi.

She included the basics like types of hooks, yarn recommendations, how to begin with a magic circle (which those that know me, know this is always a struggle for me). She shows how to sew the different pieces together, how to add eyes, and so much more.

The book really has a great explanation for beginners as well as those that are experienced making amigurumi.

The Crochet Cute Critters

After the first 23 detailed pages of instructions, the cuteness really begins. Sarah features 26 animals that correspond to the 26 letters of the alphabet: Alex the Alligator, Benny the Bear, Callie the Cat, and so on. All the animal designs are a little different fun have a fun personality with their design. Some of my favorites are: Alex the Alligator, Xavier the Xray Fish, and Yoland the Yak.

Again, you can pre-order the book on Amazon, HERE. The Crochet Cute Critters: 26 Easy Amigurumi Patterns, will be released on August 20, 2019. Or read below on the change to win your copy!

Some Bunny To Love Crochet Pattern

Everybody needs… Some Bunny To Love!

One afternoon, as I was perusing facebook one of my photographer friends sent me a message requesting a little stuffed bunny for a photo shoot. She wanted the child to be able to hold the little bunny by the arm with the bunny hanging at their side {I’ll be sure to share those photo’s once I receive them}.

Well, if you know me, I immediately sat down and started designing a cute little bunny. I had just finished designing my Sleepy Tight Teddy Bear stuffed animal and loved his long legs and arms. I immediately knew that this bunny would have those same darling features.

Some Bunny To Love

She needed to have some cute floppy ears, beady eyes, and cute nose and subtle mouth. But, even more important is a cute little fluffy tail.

Some Bunny To Love  Some Bunny To Love

This bunny is so soft and cuddly. You know you want to make one for the upcoming Easter holiday. It can be given to a child as a lovable toy, or you can display her with your decor. So make sure to grab your copy today!
