Knitting, knitting, and some more knitting

Just in time for Easter March 6, 2013

Elegant Eggs

 

This is my knit egg pattern, Elegant Eggs, which is available as a free Ravelry download.  It’s worked in the round using either magic loop or a set of 5 dpns.  It uses Emily Ocker’s Cast On, so you’ll need a crochet hook as well.  For worsted weight, I suggest you use anywhere from a US size 4 (3.5mm) to a US size 6 (4.0mm) needle.  It can also be worked in fingering weight for smaller eggs using a US size 1 (2.25mm) or a US size 2 (2.75mm).  You can really use any yarn you’d like for the project, just pick a needle about 2 sizes smaller than what’s recommended on the ball band.  The pictured egg was worked using a US size 6 (4.0mm) needle and Malabrigo worsted.  Be careful not to over stuff so you don’t loose the egg shape.

    I love these eggs so much! Maybe I will get around to actually *making* some this year rather than just ogling yours wistfully from afar.
