I have decided to create a ‘how to’ tutorial to crochet an egg cosy. Thank you to all the people who have voted for me in the Dorset Cereal Little Blog Awards. With just over a week to go I would very much appreciate it if you shy readers, who haven’t voted yet, place your vote here :-)
Materials: Any small amount of double knitting yarn. Here I used red cotton. A 4.5mm crochet hook and a darning needle.
Let us begin.
Ch 3 and join with a slip stitch
Rnd 1: ch 1, sc four times into the ring. Join with sl st. From this point forward just work in the round continually without any sl st.
Here I have placed stitch marker to know when each round begins. You can get my crochet stitch markers here or you can just use a safety pin.
Rnd 2: now sc twice into each st (10)
Rnd 3: * sc 1 st, dbsc next st,* ** rep to end (15)
Rnd 4: * sc 1 st, dbsc next st,* ** rep to end (21)
Rnd 5-13: Work single sc into each st. I finished after row 13 but you may wish to continue if you have particularly large eggs. Break off yarn and sew all ends in.
