Create perfectly-proportioned eggs with this simple pattern.
For a single egg, approximately the size of a hen's egg, you need around 16m (17½ yds) of double knitting (DK, light worsted weight, Category 3) yarn, so the quantity shown below should make half a dozen in one shade. You could also work these eggs in Stylecraft Classique Cotton DK.
Make miniature or mammoth eggs by choosing a different weight yarn and matching hook!
Embellish them further with stitching, beads, sequins etc, or just enjoy their natural beauty. These also work well if you make them in household string for the children to paint!
The pattern is fully illustrated with step-by-step colour photos, and is available in UK, US and French versions - you can choose whichever version you prefer to use.
