Knitted Egg Warmers for Easter

As my kids made eggcups out of toilet paper rolls for the Easter meal, I used rest yarns to make Easter themed egg warmers. These are very easy to knit, thick (or doubled yarn) works best. I found the bunnies in the Finnish crafts magazine kauneimmat kevät askartelut (p. 23) but the I chicks just made up using the same idea. I used needles size 4, started with 28-30 stitches and knit always right, shaped the form in a suitable way for the chicks and divided the knitting into two according to the chart for the bunnies. I finished them up by crochetting the seem in the back, stitched the eyes and crocheted the nose/ beak and legs later on.

In the background you can see the Easter grass growing we  sowed last weekend, and willow branches to be decorated, among others with pompoms.

Ps. to get more ideas on Easter crafts, you may want to check the newly added category for that. And as we’ve been productive, there’ll be more as soon as I have time to blog.

    1. The crocheting part was very simple as I can only crochet the basic loops and stitches. So if I can, you can! We had friends over for a Palm Sunday brunch today, and served the eggs with the egg warmers, which created a fun touch to the laid table

    1. Nånting att göra för din nästa resa upp till Pampas? 😉
