I did some egg covers last year.  This time I crocheted a few easter eggs-covers and few easter chick egg-covers.  I saw this picture online and find it very cute, so I tried it out.  I am happy with the outcome.

Anyway, here is to share with you.  For those of you who may be interested to make some for your coming easter, I hope this is not too late. Ainyway they are very easy to make.

You will need plastic eggs for this project. The top half is more pointed while the bottom half has a wider end.  Here is the pattern.

MR-magic ring
ss-slip stitch
X-single crochet
V-2sc in one stitch
fo-fasten off

R1:      MR-6X
R2:      6V
R3:      X all round
R4:      (XV) repeat all round
R5:      X all round
R6:      (XXV) repeat all round
R7:      X all round
R8:      (XXXV) repeat all round
R9-11:  X all round (3rows)
R12:    (XXXXV) repeat all round
R13:    X all round; ss; fo

R1:     MR-6X
R2:     6V
R3:     (XV) repeat all round
R4:     X all round
R5:     (XXV) repeat all round
R6:     (XXXV) repeat all round
R7:     X all round
R8:      (XXXXV) repeat all round
R9-12:  X all round; ss; fo

Now you can apply some glue to the plastic egg and place it into the crochet cover.  You may have to do this quickly and adjust the cover to the edge of the plastic egg before the glue hardens or dries.  Do one open-half of the plastic egg each time so you can adjust it to the edge.  Take note that you do not cover the gap that goes inside of the other half when you close the two halves together.

Note:  You may have to make adjustment as plastic eggs may vary in size and the thickness of the yarn you are using may also vary so you may have to adjust the number of stitches and rows as you crochet along.  You can change the color of yarn as you crochet along the rows or you can use only one color and add eyes and beak to create a chick face.

MR-magic ring

dc-double crochet
ss-slip stitch

I hope crocheters find my pattern easy to understand and follow. I would really appreciate feedbacks from those who tried it out to let me know if it works ok or any suggestion for improvement. Thanks.
