Crochet Amigurumi Chocolate Easter Egg Holders - chick, rabbit and sheep

I was looking for something that I could make to hold a chocolate Easter egg for my grandchildren.

I found these super patterns for chicks, sheep and a rabbit - thank you so much to the people who make them and share for free.


I adapted some of them slightly so that I could put the small chocolate Easter Egg inside and then when they are finished with I will stuff and sew them up.

The first one is by Jacutesy for a little chick hatching from its egg.

I worked the pattern until there were 27 stitches on the 'egg' and fastened off then sewed it to the shell leaving a gap at the back to put the egg inside. I did one with wings and legs and the other just in its shell.

These two chicks were super simple.

All done in one piece and even crocheted together so the only sewing was the eyes. I did  one with buttons for eyes and one with french knots.

I left the back seam open slightly to allow me to put the egg inside.

I loved doing these - a chick, a rabbit and a sheep.

These did not need any alteration as they were made to hold a chocolate egg. Really easy to do, all made in one evening. If you need help in doing the loopy stitches on the sheep see my video tutorial here: https://youtu.be/L-8g1HRjt1s



If you would like to see these in the flesh ... or should that be 'wool' see my video of them here: https://youtu.be/tySn479FUwU

Happy crocheting and happy Easter!
