So, here we go. Ingredients.... 3.5mm hook 8ply wool (this is what I used but any size hook and yarn will do). Stuffing. N.B. Rounds are worked in continuous spirals. Abbreviations can be found here.

Round 13. *1sc into each of the following 2sts then skip a st. Repeat from * until end of round. (12) Stuff firmly.


Round 14. *1sc into the following st then skip st. Repeat from * until the hole is small enough to finish off.


Give your egg a little squish and a roll and then you are done. Have fun - I can't wait to see some stripy ones out there and maybe even crazy ones with eyes and ears.... you could even take the ears from the Flora Rabbit pattern.


Good luck!!! Lots of love, Kate xxooxx.

  6. Thank you so much for this post! This along with your others have inspired me. I have stripey eggs all done to accompany our Easter hare who sits upon our table as a festive decoration and for my little girl to play with and talk about her first realised Easter. When my camera is charged I will post about this on my blog. Are you in Tauranga? I love Blanc! If you are I will add you to my local lenz on my blog x

  10. First of all, what does N.B. mean?
    Second, you didn't get row three spaced right (it appears to be hugging two.)
    And lastly, I've just finished one which turned out much bigger than i expected - my hook size was closer to six - fixing to start at it with much smaller hook.
    Thanks for sharing!
