These adorable knitted Easter Eggs are fun to make and a great way to use up leftover sock yarn!
You will need:
M1 = make one (knit into the horizontal bar between the stitch just knit and the next one)
Cast on 9sts on double pointed needles (3 per needle)
1st round: knit
2nd round: k2, *m1, k1* repeat * to * 6 times and finish with k1: 15 sts
3rd round: knit
4th round: k2, *M1, k1* repeat * to * 12 times , finish with k1: 27 sts
5th ,6th & 7th round: knit
8th round: k3, *m1, k2* repeat from *to * 4 times, m1, k5, **m1, k2** repeat ** to ** 4 times, m1 k3 – 37 sts
9th to 18th round: knit all stitches
19th round: *k2, k2tog* repeat * to *, k last rem st = 28 sts
21st: *k1, k2tog*, repeat * to * knit last rem st =19 sts
22nd to 24th round: knit
25th: k1, then k all sts tog 2x2 =10 sts left
26th: knit all sts
Cut yarn leaving enough yarn to thread through remaining 10 sts with a darning needle. Thread through but don’t pull tight until filling with stuffing, then sew up and make a loop hanger of extra yarn. You may also want to tighten up the end of the egg at the cast on edge.
