Create perfectly-proportioned eggs with this simple pattern.

Embellish them further with stitching, beads, sequins etc, or just enjoy their natural beauty.

For a single egg approximately the size of a hen’s egg you need approximately 16m (17½ yds) of double knitting (DK, light worsted weight, Category 3) yarn and a 3.5mm (US size E-4) hook.

You will also need a small amount of stuffing material.

You can make miniature or mammoth eggs by choosing a different weight yarn and matching hook.

These work well if you make them in household string for the children to paint too!

The pattern is fully illustrated with step-by-step colour photos.

The pattern is available in either UK and US terminology. Both patterns will be available to you when you purchase, and you can choose whichever version you prefer to use.

All my patterns come with full support. If you have any difficulties at all, please do drop me a line. And I’m always delighted to see pictures of your finished creations!
