Knitted Easter Egg Cozy Pattern / Tutorial

Hello everyone:)

Happy Spring Equinox to all those living in the Northern Hemisphere and Happy Autumn Equinox to those living in the Southern Hemisphere:)
I have been putting together quite a few Easter projects so that I can make them for my little ones for Easter morning and I thought it would be quite sweet for them have breakfast with these little egg cozys on their boiled eggs:)
I have used pure wool felt and made a butterfly, but you could also make a chicken, rabbit, ladybug etc… the possibilities are endless…
Knitted Easter Egg Cozy Pattern / Tutorial:
Cast on 9 stitches on circular needles. I have used the Magic Loop Method of knitting.

Knit 1 round
Knit into the front and back of each stitch in next round increasing your stitches to 18.
Knit 1 round
Knit into front and back of each stitch in next round increasing your stitches to 36.
Knit garter stitch for 12 rounds.
Knit 4 rounds of moss stitch or 4 rounds of purl for a rib and then cast off 🙂

Sew in all ends. Sew around the opening where you began knitting, just thread through the stitches and pull tight.

I cut out a butterfly shape and an abdomen.
Lay the abdomen inside the butterfly and pinch together and sew together from underneath. Sew your finished butterfly onto your cozy.
View from the back…

View from the front:)
I am going to make one for each member of our family with a different little felt creature on each cozy:)

Happy knitting everyone,

    linda, i have shared the link to your lovely blog and these wonderful patterns with my local waldorf group. i hope you don’t mind! i knew they would enjoy making some of these treats for their little ones for easter.

    by the way, our foundation studies teacher this month is from south africa! every time she mentioned it, i thought of you. she is from johannesburg (i surely did not spell it right) but lives here in the states now.
