It is optional but recommended to block your finished piece. Fill a bowl with water and add some liquid starch if you prefer the square to be lightly stiffened. Soak and gently press out any excess liquid, being careful not to pull or twist on the stitches. Lay it flat on a blocking mat and pin the square working from the center out to the edges. Allow to dry completely before removing the pins.

Egg-

Row 1- with size 3 crochet thread (color 1) and using the larger hook ch 4 (counts as the foundation ch and ch-3 space), 8 dc in fourth ch from hook, ch 2, turn. (last dc made counts as the second ch-3 space)

To make a loop for hanging cut a piece of thread about 6" long.  Thread it onto the yarn needle and weave it through the center sc on row 8 at the top of the egg.  Tie into a knot and trim the ends.

🌼 Decorating the eggs 🌼

Small Flower-

First petal- with size 10 crochet thread and using the smaller hook ch 4, slip st in third ch from hook and in the next ch (the first ch made).

Second petal- ch 3, slip st in third ch from hook and in the first ch made.

Petals 3-6- Repeat instructions for the second petal 4 times, fasten off and weave in ends.

Large Flower-

First petal- with size 10 crochet thread and using the smaller hook ch 5, slip st in fourth ch from hook and in the next ch (the first ch made).

Second petal- ch 4, slip st in fourth ch from hook and in the first ch made.

Petals 3-6- Repeat instructions for the second petal 4 times, fasten off and weave in ends.

Stripes-

For a wide stripe have your work with the right side facing up.  For a thin stripe have your work with the wrong side facing up.


1- Depending on the size stripe your making, start with either the right side facing up (wide stripe) or wrong side facing up (thin stripe), and holding the thread behind your work, insert hook in any ch-2 or ch-3 space.
2- pull up a loop.  
3- Working around the post of the next FPdc or BPdc, insert hook in the space between the next 2 sts and pull up a loop.  Draw through 1 loop on hook to make a slip st.  Repeat step 3 for the remaining sts in the row, fasten off and weave in ends.

Adding the flowers-

Thread the sewing needle and place the flower where you want it to go on the egg.  Starting on the back of your work, bring the needle up through the middle of the flower and back down again.  If using beads, place one in the center of the flower.  Bring the sewing needle back up through the center of the bead and back down next to the bead so that the thread wraps around it.  Do this a few more times spacing the thread evenly around the bead so it lays flat.  Tie both ends of the thread in a knot and trim the edges.




🌼 Row 1 🌼

1- ch 4.  The first ch made is the foundation ch you will be working in and the next 3 chs count as the first ch-3 space.
2- 8 dc in fourth ch from the hook.  The last dc made counts as the second ch-3 space.
3- ch 2.
4- turn your work over.

🌼 Row 2 🌼

Row 3- FPdc around each of next 9 BPdc, hdc in next ch-2 space, ch 2, turn.  (9 FPdc)

Row 4- BPdc around each of next 9 FPdc, hdc in next ch-2 space, ch 2, turn.  (9 BPdc)

Row 5- 2-FPdc decrease around next 2 BPdc, FPdc around each of next 5 BPdc, 2-FPdc decrease around next 2 BPdc, hdc in next ch-2 space, ch 2, turn.  (2 2-FPdc decreases, 5 FPdc)

Row 6- 2-BPdc decrease around next 2 sts, BPdc around each of next 3 FPdc, 2-BPdc decrease around next 2 sts, hdc in next ch-2 space, ch 2, turn.  (2 2-BPdc decreases, 3 BPdc)

🌼 Row 8 🌼

with color 2 join in the same ch-2 space, ch 1, 2 sc in same space, 2 sc in each of next 4 ch-2 spaces, 3 sc in next ch-3 space, sc in the free loop of foundation ch, 3 sc in next ch-3 space, 2 sc in each of next 6 ch-2 spaces, 3 sc in next 5-FPdc decrease, 2 sc in next ch-2 space, join in first sc, fasten off and weave in ends.  (34 sc)

These instructions are if you're adding beads onto the doily-

Rounds 1-19- Follow the same instructions as above.

After completing round 19, fasten off and thread on 42 beads.  To add the beads I used a thin piece of wire folded in half and placed the thread in between.  



Round 20- join thread in same dc, ch 3 (counts as first dc), dc in next dc, [ch 3, sc in next ch-6 space, bring one of the beads next to the sc just made and make a slip st around the bead, sc in same space, ch 3, dc in each of next 2 dc] 7 times, sc in next ch-5 space,  dc in each of next 2 dc, [ch 3, sc in next ch-6 space, bring one of the beads next to the sc just made and make a slip st around the bead, sc in same space, ch 3, dc in each of next 2 dc] 7 times, sc in next ch-5 space, repeat from  around, slip st to third ch of first dc.

Blocking and Finishing

It is optional but recommended to block your finished piece. Fill a bowl with water and add some liquid starch if you prefer the doily to be lightly stiffened. Soak the doily and gently press out any excess liquid, being careful not to pull or twist on the stitches. Lay it flat on a blocking mat and pin the doily working from the center out to the edges. Allow the doily to dry completely before removing the pins.



Making a slip st around the bead on Round 20

1- sc in the next ch-6 space.
2- bring one of the beads next to the sc just made.
3- make a slip st, working around the bead and try to pull tightly.
4- sc once more in the same ch-6 space.

Making an arch on Round 21

1- slip st in the next dc, ch 2 and dc in the same dc.
2- ch 2, dc in the last dc made.
3- ch 5, slip st in fifth ch from the hook to make a picot.
4- ch 3, dc in third ch from the hook.
5- skip over the 2 ch-3 spaces on Round 20 and make a dc in the next dc, ch 2 and slip st in the same dc.

Making a triple picot on Round 21

1- ch 5, slip st in the fifth ch from the hook.
2- ch 7, slip st in the seventh ch from the hook.
3- ch 4, slip st in the fourth ch from the hook.
4- slip st in the very first ch made to complete the triple picot.
