Thanks for putting the pattern link on for me-- I've been sick (bronchitis) and wasn't thinking clearly.
Last year, I made some chickens that the egg slips under the bodies of the chicken. (The plastic or real egg will rest sideways) I'll see if I can find a photo and add it here and you can just look at the photo and figure it out too. I didn't write anything down and you have to change the stitches/etc to allow for the differences in yarn.
*I just made 'how to' knit them up.. but, there are patterns like it out there.. just do a search.. or I'll see if I can figure out how do them again. I sent one to my adult friends.. I figured you weren't too old for Easter cuteness.
Here they are.. They are easy to do.. knitted in one flat piece and then sewn together. If you are interested- I'll try to write up a pattern.
