Crochet Easter Egg Pattern by Julieta Brandao
Decorated eggs are a tradition in many countries. The most famous are Russia’s Faberge eggs. Although decorated eggs are often displayed at Easter, they aren’t only associated with Christianity and the end of Lent (in Mediaeval times eggs were off the menu during Lent). Since they symbolise fertility and rebirth, eggs are often given to newly-married couples or passed between families to share good fortune at new year. As a result, you’ll see lots of different styles of egg decoration when traveling the world.
There are nine shades in the knitshop.co.uk Cotton DK Yarn range currently available, all of which are bright and cheerful. The yarns come in 100g skeins and are 80m long. This means you’ll have enough to make several eggs – or use the remainder for making lightweight springtime knits.
