Easter is on its way and what better basket stuffer can you get than this colorful Easter Egg Plushie. My 4 year old loved these little soft Easter eggs and quickly turned them into “dinosaur eggs” and “pokemon eggs” for his stuffed animal.
Make them in your little one’s favorite color and they are sure to be a hit. The soft squishiness of the blanket yarn makes this one a keeper. No Easter baskets to fill? Crochet these up and toss them on your couch for a nice Easter decoration.
These eggs are a great way to use up left over yarn from other Bernat Blanket yarn projects. This is such a soft yarn that makes these eggs so soft and very quick to work up.
These eggs take a very small amount of yarn and work up in less than 30 minutes. They will also compliment my Crochet Easter Egg and Carrots pattern that can be found here.
