Have a buzzy breakfast with a bumble bee egg cosy! This is a great project for beginner knitters to try if you want to try knitting stripes.

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: The cosy just uses three basic stitches (knit, purl and a k2tog decrease), and this is knitted flat on straight needles (not in the round). The antennae are small i-cord tubes, but you could just add strands of yarn instead if you are not sure how to knit i-cord.


  • A pair of straight 4mm knitting needles (US 6)
  • A pair of 3.5mm DPNs (US 4)
  • Double knitting yarn (DK or light worsted weight) in yellow and black; less than 15g each
