Crochet Egg Cozy Pattern



Keep your Easter eggs from cracking with these easy-to-make crochet egg cozies! They would also make a nice alternative to dying your eggs since you could crochet them in a variety of colors (even make them multiple colors) for a colorful display!

Materials:
-Vanna's Choice Yarn
- Size I (5.5mm) crochet hook (use a smaller hook for smaller eggs)
- 1/2" button
- Tapestry needle

Abbreviations:
SC= Single Crochet
SC decrease = Single crochet decrease
Magic Ring tutorial HERE

Egg Cozy Pattern (fits large eggs)
Magic Ring, 6 SC in magic ring, continue to crochet in rounds (do not join)
Round 2: 2 SC in each stitch around (12 sc)
Round 3: *2 SC in first stitch, SC in next, repeat from * around (18 SC)
Round 4-5: SC in each stitch around (18 SC)
at then end of round 5, chain 1 and turn
Round 6: SC decrease, SC in next 12, SC decrease, chain 1, turn
Round 7: SC decrease, SC in next 10, SC decrease, chain 1, turn
Round 8: SC in each stitch, chain 1 turn (12 SC)
Round 9: SC in each stitch (12 SC), after the last stitch, chain 14, connect with a SC in the same stitch you started your chains. Continue to SC along the dip of the cozy and join to the first stitch in round 10. Leave a long tail to sew a button on to this part of the cozy. The "chain 14" loop will hook to the button to close the cozy around the egg.

  11. Hi! I simply love all the crochet and craft items you come up with! :) They are a great inspiration to all us crocheters out there! Recently I've come across someone using your pictures as their own to sell crocheted items. If I can contact you, I can send you the link.
    Keep up the crocheted goodness!
