Crochet Pattern - Egg Cosy
My first pattern...
I can't believe it's March already, it seems like only yesterday I was feeling that post Christmas drag and thinking Spring would be ages away - so Hooray for Spring!
I've been asked if I could make some egg cosies so I have been playing around with patterns. The first pattern I tried was from one of my books, it was a simple pattern but because of the yarn/hook I was using came out the size of a barbie hat (which is what it's now being used as) so I gave up and did my own thing instead...
...I played around with some simple stripes for my cosies - I really liked how they turned out so I've written it out below...
When your photography assistant is only 2 years old things can quite often take a strange turn, quickly Lulu decided the eggs should be 'put to bed' so you know I just went with it...
So here it is:
Stripey Egg Cosy Pattern
Written in UK terms.
These were fairly long, but were just right for the eggs I was using if you need them smaller try a smaller hook or if they are too long simply skip Row 5. For the stripey cosy just alternate your cotton after each row.
Yarn: cotton (I used Sidar Simply Recycled DK 51% cotton, 49% Acrylic)
Ch = Chain
SS = Slip Stitch
TR = Treble
DC = Double Crochet
Ch 4 Join with SS to create a ring
Round 1: Ch 2, 11 TR into ring SS into top of Ch 2 (12)
Round 2: Ch 2, 1 TR in same stitch, 2 TR in each stitch around, join with a SS to top of Ch 2 (24)
Round 3: Ch 2, 1 TR in each stitch around, join with a SS to top of Ch 2 (24)
Rounds 4 & 5: as Round 3
Round 6: Ch 1, DC in each stitch around SS into Ch 1, finish off.
Hope that makes sense I'm pretty new at writing patterns so if you try it and find any problems (or if you try it and you don't!) let me know!
Bye for now. Em xx
