Egg or leaf? Well, it’s up to you! Either use it as a decoration, place it on top of a neatly wrapped present or arrange it together with classical Easter decorations. I´m very excited to see how you will use it.

This pattern is a good possibility to use your leftover yarn. Choose a light main color and combine it with a darker speckled yarn to create this lovely Easter decoration.

The pattern is a perfect chance to learn and practice brioche increases and decreases. If you never tried brioche before, maybe this little project is a good challenge. There are only 14 pattern rows to be knit, other rows are straight brioche knitting. So don´t be afraid of brioche knitting any longer. You don´t have to be.

The EASTER BRIOCHE RECIPE can be knit in multiple sizes only by changing needle size and gauge; Block the finished work to smooth stitches.
The directions are written and pattern charts are available too.
