Crochet eggs are a popular Easter decoration and gift item. From solid pastels to colourful stripes and patterns you can personalise these and get creative. They can be embellished with beads, ribbons, and other decorations to add extra flair. Crochet eggs are a fun and creative way to add a touch of handmade charm to your Easter celebrations after all who doesn’t love a little crochet loveliness around their home.
