Hi everyone!
My friend's birthday is coming up and she really likes eggs (not cooked eggs, just like the egg shape) so I wanted to knit her a stuffed egg.

Please let me know if you have a pattern for this, it's basically just an oval that is wider on one end. I want this to be a really squishy egg and about a foot long (maybe smaller). Thank you in advance!

I've just seen that you wanna make a BIG egg. Hmm, I guess with this pattern you could use thick yarn/multiple strands and big needles?

I've followed the curly purly pattern to make bigger eggs. I casted on a multiple of the original 9 stitches and adjusted the pattern to accommodate the extra stitches.* I believe the smaller egg was made with 27 stitches and the larger one 36.  The smaller one is about 15cm tall.




* What I mean is, if I casted on 27 stitches, that's 9 x 3, so if the pattern told me to knit 2 rows, I would knit 2 x 3 rows, that is 6 rows. But I believe I followed the instructions for the rows as given, so if it said "knit 1, increase 2, knit to end" that's what I did.

Also, make sure to stuff the egg well to give it a good shape. I was stingy with the stuffing and had a slightly pointy and easily deformed egg.
