Easter Bunny Egg Cosy Pattern

OK. I've tested it a few times more and it still seems to make sense (to me anyway!) so here it is for you to use. Let me know if it doesn't make sense or if you have any suggestions on making it work better. I'd love to see pics too so let me know if you make one!


Knitted Easter Bunny Egg Cosy Pattern

Small amount of 8ply yarn in bunny colours
Set of 4x 3.25mm double pointed needles

Body. Make one:
Cast on 27stitches and divide them evenly over 3 needles.
Knit until piece measures 4cm from cast on edge.
*K2tog, K3 (Rep. from * to end) K2tog (21 stitches)
K one row.
*K2tog, K2 (Rep. from * to end) K1 (16 stitches)
K one row.
*K2tog, K1 (Rep. from * to end) K1 (11 stitches)
K one row.
*K2tog (Rep. from * to end) K1 (6 stitches)
Break off yarn and thread through remaining 6 stitches. Secure with a few stitches.
Sew in ends

Ears, make 2:
Cast on 6 stitches, leaving a long tail to secure ear to body. Divide over 3 needles. (sorry this is a bit fiddly!)
Knit until i-cord is about 4cm long.
Break off yarn and thread through the 6 stitches. Secure with a few stitches.


Making up:
Using the picture as a guide, stitch ears to 'head'. Embroider eyes and nose. Tuck an Easter egg inside and give to your favourite chocolate lover.

Alternative version:
Make the intitial section longer (eg 6cm), stuff and close off the bottom. Knit extra i-cords for arms and legs and you have a cute little bunny toy.

Have fun!

You could always felt an old sweater and stitch it together for an infinitely quicker-to-make pretend knitted egg cosy!
