Crochet Easter EGG


Crochet easter eggs as a decoration are perfect because they never break and last a lifetime. You can make them in a single color or as a rainbow. The choice is yours.

According to Wiki:

Easter eggs are eggs that are sometimes decorated. They are usually used as gifts on the occasion of Easter. As such, Easter eggs are common during the season of Easter. The oldest tradition is to use dyed and painted chicken eggs, but a modern custom is to substitute chocolate eggs wrapped in colored foil, hand-carved wooden eggs, or plastic eggs filled with confectionery such as chocolate.
