I found these cute and simple pom pom egg cosies and thought i would give them a whirl.....
You can find the pattern here at One Churchills Green a lovely blog i stumbled across. My pom poms are not quite so teeny as Sara's but still cute i think and i changed it up a bit on the second lot of cosies for something different. I made these with 100% pure wool. I also am loving the colour... sometimes it's the simpler things that turn out the nicest :)
I made these simple aqua egg cosies up as i went along so very simple and easy just chain stitch, single and double crochet (sort of like a baby beanie)
I used the 100% wool i purchased from Little Woollie blog just to give it a test run and i am loving it !!
The colour and the feel of it is fab!
I wrote down my "pattern" and i use that term loosely i haven't written one out before so please be kind :/
I used an 8 ply wool with a 4.5 mm hook
Round 1. ch 3 join with a slip stitch
Round 2. ch 2, 2 dc, ch 2, 3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc, ch2 (all into ring) join with a slip stitch to top of the first
ch 2. (3 clusters of 3 dc)
Round 3. (here i slip stitched to the first ch 2 gap to start from there and at the start of every row)
slip stitch to first ch 2 gap, ch 2, 2 dc, ch2, 3 dc, (all in the ch 2 space) ch 2.
*(in next chain 2 gap) 3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc ch 2 * repeat in last ch 2 gap join with a slip stitch to first ch 2.
(6 clusters of 3 dc)
Round 4 & 5. slip stitch to first ch 2 gap, ch 2, 2 dc, ch 2 (in next ch 2 space) * 3 dc, ch 2 repeat from * till end (6 clusters of 3 dc)
Round 6 & 7. ch 1, single crochet in each stitch all around
That's it super simple (sure it's been done before) tho i think my instructions may have made it seem super complicated lol.
I made these to sell in my Made It store but i am tempted to keep them they are so pretty.
Have a great weekend!!
