Easter Egg Crochet Ornament

To make these eggs, I used small amounts of yarn (Snugly Wuggly by Loops & Threads, and Pound of Love by Lion Brand)  left from the baby blankets I made. Soft baby colors were perfect for making Easter eggs.

The size is about 1 ¾ by 1 ½ inches. And I used US size E hook.

Ch 5, join into a ring with a sl st.

Working into ring: ch 3, dc, tr, ch 1 ,tr, 11 dc; join with a sl st into 3rd ch of beginning ch-3.

Fasten off. Wave in the end.

Easter Eggs Bookmark, Filet Crochet Pattern

I am trying my hand at creating filet crochet patterns. I thought I should start with something as simple as a bookmark.

I made the chart using Microsoft Excel. It was quite easy.

And I set to work. I used size ten cotton thread and Boye size 7 steel hook. Usually, with size ten thread I use size ten hook, which produce tight stitches.

I like crocheting tightly, but this time I wanted to try looser stitches. As a result, my bookmark came out much bigger than I expected. It measures eight by three inches.
