This simple egg hat is knitted in blue and white, inspired by Cornish Blue crockery. 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 this is knitted flat on straight needles (not in the round).

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, purl, decrease, work simple stripes and sew a seam.


  • A pair of straight 3.75mm knitting needles (US 5)
  • Double knitting yarn (DK or light worsted weight) in blue and white
  • A 2cm diameter pompom to decorate
