worsted weight yarn in any color

4.0mm hook
Use a smaller hook if you crochet fairly loose. If you crochet tight you can use a 4.5mm
blunt end yarn needle for sewing

1 real egg, stuffing or 1
plastic Easter egg (similar in size to a real egg)
1 pipe cleaner
something for the eye like a piece of felt, crochet or paint, a button. Whatever works as an eye. I used a large googly eye and hot glued it on the face.


st = stitch
sc = single crochet
sl st = slip stitch
dc = double crochet
ch2 = chain 2
f/o = finish off

How to read the rows:
Each row has a sequence as given below. Example: 1sc then 2sc in next st means repeat that sequence 1sc then 2sc in next st followed by 1sc then 2sc in next st over and over to the end of that particular row. The number inside the parentheses ( ~ ) is the number of stitches you should have at the end of that particular row.
Starting at the top  and working down to the bottom of the body,
1) magic circle or adjustable loop with 6st (6)
2) 2sc in each (12)
3) 1sc then 2sc in next st (18)
4-12) 1sc in each st for 9 rows
13) ch2 then 2dc in next st, sl st next 2 st, repeat that, ch2 then 2dc in next st then sl st next 2 st. repeat that sequence all the way around. f/o and weave in yarn tail.

Decorate the face however you want to, here's how I did mine:
Using a pipe cleaner, I poked through the inside of the head, cut the ends shorter then rolled the ends into a ball. I didn't do anything to secure the pipe cleaner as it stayed in place fine for me but you can sew it in place. A couple of holding stitches with yarn will work great, knot off on the inside of the head.
The mouth was done with a strand of red yarn, doubled and knotted off inside the head. I chained a length of green yarn (ch7) and put that over the red yarn, knotted the yarn tails inside the head.
I finished off the face by gluing on one large googly eye.

Push the egg or stuffing inside the body and you're done!
