1  easter egg cosies in Easter by lyre on: March 29, 2006 07:20:38 AM


gave these to my friends for easter. i thought chicks were appropriate because they're not too easter-y and once the creme egg's gone (which is very very quick) they can be used as egg cosies to keep non-chocolate eggs warm. Smiley
i was inspired by the egg cosies posted last year, but i winged a short-row pattern so that i had less seaming. here's roughly what i did:

cast on 10 sts
row 1: k8, wrap and turn
row 2: k across
repeat rows 1-2 until the 'top' looks circular (try fitting an egg into the half-knitted cosy & see if the two edges meet at the top). then:
row 3: k7, wrap and turn
row 4: k across
row 5: k6, wrap and turn
row 6: k across
cast off

i find in casting off that it looks neater if, when you reach the last two sts, you pull the loop on the right needle THROUGH the loop on the left needle. then just sew up the seam, weave in the ends and sew on beads for eyes and a piece of felt for the beak.

hope that's clear. happy easter!
