Easter Chick Egg Cosy





Simple and easy to knit
and perfect to hide a Cadbury’s Cr√®me Egg or hard-boiled egg for a little Easter fun!


Little Chick Egg Cosy

I used DK (8ply) yarn and smaller than usual needles to make these. This gives a denser fabric and the contents do not show through so much. Toy makers often use this technique too.
