Amigurumi Easter Egg Reviewed by Linda on 2013-03-13 ****
I've made this pattern in various colors and color schemes; all turn out cute. The "fancier", variegated yarns make for eggs that look similar to the European/Polish painted eggs; just beautiful!

As far as the "pointy" end: I didn't really care for that, either. The way to get around/past that, I've found, is to just do 2 decreases at the top; making for 2 stitches instead of the 4, on the pattern. Four stitches "bunches" it, too much; especially if you crochet tightly. Weave in your ends, and it is fairly rounded, making it look more "egg"-like.

This is my first amigurumi project and I had to learn the hard way (with extra research) to crochet through both stitches, not just the back stitch. This will help ensure that your egg is "right-side out", stay the right shape, and not have a spiral up the side. I also did not use the suggested method of starting; I used the "Magic Circle". Instead of using the suggested decreasing method, I used the "Invisible Decrease."
I don't like how the top of the eggs turn out - very pointy. I have tried about 8 different ways of finishing it off and still have not found a method that lays flat.
All that said, my 3-year old thinks they are the best thing to play with and my 4-month old likes looking at them.

Quick, easy and fun. I made a bunch in different colors and sizes for a beautiful Easter center piece.

Very cute. Using a G hook and worsted weight, and skipping two rows per another reviewer's suggestion, I came out with an egg slightly larger than a Grade A in my fridge. I'd still be able to use the carton for display. Fast, easy, and a good choice for a beginner at amigurumi.

Way fun! Grandkids Loved this one but I recommend Checking Gauge! My first eggs became dog toys since they were a little larger than pictured. This is a good beginner project.

Excellent pattern! Easy to follow, and the eggs are very cute! I gave it 4 stars because it looks a lot better when started with magic ring instead of chaining two.

This pattern is perfect for covering plastic Easter eggs. Depending on the yarn, I adjusted the pattern accordingly. On the last three rows I had to crochet with the egg in place. Very quick and easy.

As with the Easter Basket pattern, I made the eggs...Since they came out so large, I stopped at row 3, jumped to row 5, (only making 18 stitches of course) continued with that until row 10, then skipped to row '14' and finished the project...the eggs still came out larger than life, but not as large as they could have been...
(I used the same theory with the carrot pattern too making it a total of 15 rows instead of the patterns 30+)....
They still came out very cute...

Very quick to work up. Fun little project for Easter. I placed a jingle bell inside the poly-fil and will be giving them as first Easter gifts to the babies in my day care.
