This last week I have been making furry egg cosies for my daughters Girl Guides easter chocolate raffle. They wanted a donation of 2 large and 3 small eggs from each guide, and to be quite frank, I'm skint!!  Embarrassed So I dived into my stash, and came up with these, I've done 16 so far.  Grin

The guider in charge was so pleased with them, I've now got to make as many as I can for Saturday!!  Shocked She said she'd rather have these on the stall than the easter eggs!!  Cool Me, pleased?? Oh yes!!  Grin

They are really easy to do;

28 stitches and 28 rows. (all rows garter st.)
5mm needles
double knit yarn
fun fur yarn (or similar)

Cast on 28st
knit 1 row in double knit
2 rows in fun fur (or some kind of fluffy funky stuff)
2 rows double knit
repeat the 2 rows fur, 2 rows double knit until 27 rows.
1 row dk
cast off in dk

To sew up;

Sew cast on and cast off edge together, then make running stitches through 1 end, pull together and fasten off, leave other end open. Push fastened end inside the 'tube' until it will fit a creme egg in. Make a tie from the yarn/ ribbon/ beads etc to fasten  above the top of the egg. It doesn't matter which side is inside or out, because you get a different effect with both.

The shorter closed end one was made with 22st and 28 rows, and I fastened both ends.

Heres a pic of the results.  Grin

If you put googly eyes on them, they would be the latest craze. And chocolate..........yum!

Cute!!!  I like it.

Debbies only get respect in the knitting world.  How unfair is that?

Because Poe wrote on both of them.

Anyone up for a Jasper Fforde swap?

they are so cute! I bet you are thrilled to be making more. It is a sure bet if you come up with an idea- it needs to be reallllly tested by making more!!
They are very pretty though and after the eggs are gone they could hold other little treasures. Or if you adapted the draw strig they could be worn around the wrist or neck. I think that would be so cute
