Let me tell you, folks, this is a dish you won’t be serving up in the kitchen! I stumbled upon this Eggs with Bacon crochet pattern and – gosh, it tickled me pink. It brings back so many memories of brunches with family and friends, and the cozy feelings of home.
Every time I work on this pattern, my mouth waters just a tad. Those sunny-side-up eggs paired with crispy bacon strips – it’s quite the breakfast delight, but in yarn! Now, isn’t that something to crack a smile about? It’s almost as if you can smell the sizzle and feel the warmth of a breakfast plate… without the calories, of course!
While it might seem a touch whimsical – and, oh, it certainly is – there’s also a deep sense of nostalgia here. Whether it’s a quirky touch for your kitchen decor or a playful gift for a fellow brunch-lover, these crocheted delights are bound to fry up some joy!

- Do not join rounds, work in a continuous spiral.
- You can use the same pattern to make larger or smaller toys by using finer or bulkier yarn. Pick a crochet hook at least a size smaller than suggested on the yarn label and crochet tightly enough to achieve a tight gauge that will not allow the stuffing to show through the fabric.
- All stitches are worked into both loops, unless stated otherwise in the pattern.
- Use a stitch marker or a piece of yarn to mark the end or the beginning of a round.
- Make sure, you crochet tight all the way, to get no huge stretching holes between the stitches after you filled in the cotton wool.
- Stuff is very well.
