Have a festive breakfast and keep your boiled eggs warm with this little Christmas Tree egg cosy. This is a great project for beginner knitters to try as you just need to know two stitches (knit and a k2tog decrease), and the cosy is knitted flat on straight needles (not in the round). My tree is decorated with little ready-made pompoms, but you could also sew on buttons, beads or sequins instead.

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. You will need to cast on, knit, work a k2tog decrease, and sew a seam.


  • A pair of straight 4mm knitting needles (US 6)
  • Double knitting yarn (DK or light worsted weight) in green
