30 Minute Velvet Egg Crochet Pattern

Are you egg-cited for Easter? Whether you’re in need of a quick last minute gift or some kid friendly seasonal decor, this 30 minute velvet egg crochet pattern will be your new go-to.

I know there are plenty of egg patterns floating around but I really wanted to create my own using some yarn from my stash.

The velvet yarn gives these eggs a really luxurious feel and the soft colours look so pretty.

I’ve kept mine sweet and simple to suit my style but feel free to add embellishments and make them your own.

Finished Size

The finished crochet eggs measure approximately 2.5″ (6.5cm) tall. Size may vary depending on tension and materials used.


Gauge is not important in this pattern. Use a hook size to match your chosen yarn. Make sure that your stitches are tight enough to prevent stuffing showing through and adjust hook size if necessary.


  • Pieces are worked in a continuous spiral. Mark the first stitch of each round with a removable stitch marker.

  1. Fay, your patterns always come in clutch! Seems like every time I’m struggling to find a pattern that’s just right, your website appears with the perfect pattern. I’ve been searching for an egg that’s just the right size and shape when a link to your pattern appeared, and it is EXACTLY what I needed!
    (How many times can I say ‘pattern’ in one post? Pattern!)

    So much love!
