Easy Easter Eggs Knitting Pattern- a quick project that’s perfect for decor and Easter baskets!
These knit easter eggs are knit flat and they make a great stash-busting project! I knit these eggs using different weights of yarn. The stripe ones are worsted and the marbled ones are #2 fine weight. For the fine-weight eggs, I knit using 2 strands of yarn at the same time. Since this pattern is pretty simple, you can customize it by adding more stripes or even designs if you want to get fancy.
These knit eggs make great gifts to add to a kids Easter Basket.
