These sweet sheep will certainly add a cute factor to your breakfast table not only at Easter time but all year round. Use them to cover chocolate eggs for the children, and adults, as an Easter surprise!

The cosies are a quick knit. They stand 9.5cm/3.75in high and have a circumference of 16cm/6.25in before top shaping. The detailed written pattern includes row by row instructions and helpful photographs.

I recommend using a wool or wool mix yarn to keep your eggs warm. The sheep cosies have a roll edge, embroidered eyes and nose and, the ears are knit separately and sewn on upon completion. The cosies are knit flat on two needles.
