Easter is a special time of the year and the most exciting for the children. So this Easter I decided to make some fun egg cozies that will make children feel like being in a fairytale.

The first cozy is the Damsel’s hair (or wig as I like to call it) with its luxurious locks that along with the hat has a sprinkle of steampunk cuteness.

The unicorn is adorned with mini flowers and has an appealing “mane” at the back.

The patterns for both are not complicated at all and work up really fast. The Damsel’s wig / cozy is made to serve as a prop - cozy that you can put on an egg and take it off, so because the locks make it really heavy, I give instructions in the pattern how to make it fixed using a “headband” that you actually tie below the egg. If you want to use it year after year as a fixture, than you can glue it to an artificial (plastic, wooden or clay) egg.

The unicorn is lighter than the wig and does not require additional attachment.
Both cozies are meant to be used with XL size of eggs (73 grams+).

Finished measurements: Damsel’s hair: 7 cm /2.8” across (locks excluded). Unicorn cap/ cozy: 6.5cm / 2.6” across.

Unicorn hair: 4.5 cm /1.8”.

Technicalities: * Please note that the wig and hat are made for XL eggs (73 gr+)

  • sport yarn in desired colors for damsel’s hair, unicorn and hat, embroidery floss for flowers and hat ribbon.
  • 1.9 mm (1.7 mm for the floss) hook tapestry needle and stuffing for the horn
