Hello! How’s your Spring going so far? Or, are you having a Spring? Where I live it went

from being 30-40 degrees a week ago to this week we’re getting 70-80 degree weather. Whoa! That’s whiplash fast, in my opinion. I am not ready for it to be 70 degrees when I wake up in the morning. Not working for me, I needed a Spring, it was a long winter. Ugh!

So I was looking at my Easter egg earring pattern I posted last year and noticed… it wasn’t good. Well, it wasn’t bad but I need to clean up the pattern and make sure it reads better. In fact, I decided to update the pattern and even make a new egg.
For either of these projects you will need four colors of Worsted Weight yarn and a US G (4.25MM) crochet hook.

For the applique:

(First color)Row 1: Ch 8, sc into second ch from the hook and across (7 scs)

(First color)Row 2: turn, ch 2, sc twice into the first st, sc across, sc twice into the last st (9 scs)
(Second color)Row 3: turn, ch 2, sc twice into the first st, sc across, sc twice into the last st (11 scs)
(Third color)Row 4: turn, ch 2, skip st, dc into next st, *ch 1, dc2tog w/ first leg(dc) of the st in the same st as the last dc then skip a st and place the next leg (dc) into the next st, * repeat from * to * 3 more times, ch 1, dc into last st (4 dc2tog, 2 dc)
(Fourth color)Row 5: turn, ch 1, sc across (11 scs)
(Fourth color)Row 6: turn, ch 1, sc2tog into the first 2 sts, sc across, sc2tog into the last 2 sts (9 scs)
(First color) Row 7: turn, ch 1, sc2tog into the first 2 sts, sc across, sc2tog into the last 2 sts (7 scs)
(Second color)Row 8: turn, ch 2, skip st, dc into next st, *ch 1, dc2tog w/ first leg(dc) of the st in the same st as the last dc then skip a st and place the next leg (dc) into the next st, * repeat from * to * 1 more time, ch 1, dc into last st (2 dc2tog, 2 dc)
(Third color)Row 9: turn, ch 1, sc across (7 scs)
(Third color)Row 10: turn, ch 1, sc2tog into the first 2 sts, sc across, sc2tog into the last 2 sts (5 scs)
(Fourth color)Row 11: turn, ch 1, sc2tog into the first 2 sts, sc across, sc2tog into the last 2 sts ( 3 scs)

Now I fasten off after row 11 but if you would like, you could go another row and just sc across. This will make the top appear more finished.
