Supplies You’ll Need

Before getting started, read through your pattern’s supplies list and collect everything you’ll need. Here are some of the most common supplies you’ll need to make an Easter pattern:

Supplies for crochet Easter toys:

If you’re making a crochet toy, you’ll probably also need some additional supplies, such as:

  • Toy stuffing/fiberfill
  • Safety eyes (Please note that safety eyes can be a choking hazard for children under 3. For small children, it’s best to embroider the eyes.)

Crochet Techniques to Know

Besides looking carefully at your pattern’s supplies list, read through the pattern instructions thoroughly to ensure you’re comfortable with all of the stitches and techniques used. Some of the most common techniques you’ll notice in these patterns include:

Tips for Crocheting Easter Patterns

Here are a few helpful tips to remember while crocheting your Easter pattern.

Use stitch markers for crocheting in the round.

Many of the patterns below are worked in the round, and using stitch markers can make a huge difference in the success of your project! Keep a collection of stitch markers nearby to mark your rows. This makes it much easier to keep track and make sure you don’t miss or add rows.

Use a smaller hook for crochet amigurumi.

When making crochet amigurumi (which simply refers to stuffed yarn creatures), it’s generally best to use a hook that’s a little smaller than you would typically use. Using a hook that’s one or two sizes smaller than normal helps to create a tighter fabric, which will help keep your stuffing from falling out with time and use.

Avoid safety eyes when crocheting for a child.

Safety eyes can pose a choking hazard for children under age 3. If your project has eyes and will be going to a home with a child, it’s best to embroider the eyes instead of using safety eyes.
