Bunny Egg Cosy – Free Pattern!

Bunny Egg Cosy-Free Pattern

Spring has finally sprung, however, I don’t think the weather got the memo! It may not feel like it, but Easter is fast approaching us and to get you in the mood to celebrate (and overinduldge!) I’d like to share my Easter Bunny Creme Egg Cosy pattern with you. These adorable little bunnies take no time to work up and are great for using up all those odds and ends of yarn we are all guilty of squirelling away! I think these Easter Bunny Creme Egg Cosies would make the perfect handmade gift for your nearest and dearest this Easter. So without further ado, let’s hop to it! (Sorry not sorry) ; )

Nose

Choose which side you would like to be the front of your work. Once you have chosen, using yarn P and a yarn needle embroider a small cross (approx 1 stiches x 1 stitches) in the centre of the fifth round (counting down from the top) on the front of your work to make the nose.

 

Eyes

Using yarn B and a yarn needle embroider the eyes approximately 2 stitches apart in the centre of the fourth round. The eyes should be the height of 1 stitch.

 

Tail

Find the centre stitch on the last round back of your work. Attach yarn W to the next stitch on the right (this will be left if you are left-handed)  and chain one, yarn over and insert your hook into the next stitch (the centre stitch), yarn over again and pull up (3 loops on hook), yarn over, insert hook into same stitch space, yarn over and pull up (5 loops on hook), yarn over and pull through all 5 loops on hook, ch1, sl st into next stitch and fasten off. Weave in the ends with a yarn needle.

 

Sew on the Ears

Finally, sew on the ears. Make sure they are placed on top of the head close together otherwise your bunny may look a little less bunny-like than you’d like! Weave in the ends.
