Blue Striped Egg Pattern

all 3 eggs

As I mentioned in my "recipe"/pattern for the Red Easter Egg, these are just recipes that can easily adjusted.  Any one of these eggs can be done striped by changing yarns between rounds, this could be solid.  You could use a variegated yarn ( several of my initial eggs were made with variegated yarns) But for the purposes of writing down these patterns this egg is the one that is striped.  Beginning with round 3, all stitches are crocheted through the back loop)

scraps of 'n creme type kitchen cotton
G/6 - 4.25 mm hook
plastic Easter Egg


round 1 - ch5, sl into 1st ch to create a loop
round 2 - ch2, 11 DC around loop, sl to top of chain to create round, pull tight 
               cut yarn
round 3 - slip a loop through the back loop (a few loops before the cut yarn tail 
              so you can cover tail and not have to weave later) ch1, [2SC, 2SC in

round 4 - ch1, SC each st, sl to join, pull tight, cut yarn
