Brighten up breakfast time with a beehive egg cosy. This is a great project for beginner knitters to try as you just need to know three stitches (knit, purl and a k2tog decrease), and the cosy is knitted flat on straight needles (not in the round). The top loop is a single crochet chain, but you could just add a loop of yarn instead if you are not sure how to crochet.

THE PATTERN INCLUDES: Row numbers for each step so you don’t lose your place, instructions for making the cosy, a list of abbreviations and explanation of some techniques, a materials list and recommended yarns. The pattern is 2 pages and written in English.

TECHNIQUES: All pieces are knitted flat (back and forth) on a pair of straight knitting needles, apart from the top loop which is a single crochet chain worked on a crochet hook. You will need to cast on, knit, purl, decrease, and sew a seam.


  • A pair of straight 4mm knitting needles (US 6)
  • Optional: A 4mm crochet hook (US G/6)
  • Double knitting yarn (DK or light worsted weight) in yellow
