Daisy Egg Cosy

Pin It
Sunny Side Up Daisy Egg Cosy
This egg cosy is a delightful little pick-me-up first thing in the morning.  You can't help but smile at the thought of a little flower on your egg.

The pattern is very straightforward and can easily be knitted in one evening.


Pattern

Materials needed - Any kind of white yarn that you have in your stash.  About a quarter of a ball.  
Needles to match the ply.  
Yellow buttons

Cast on 8 stitches

Row 1:    Slip 1, Knit to end
Row 2:    Slip 1, Purl to end
Row 3:    Slip 1, K1, (YO, K1) to end

Repeat rows 1 and 2 until work measures about 6 or 7 cm.

1st Cast off row:      Slip 1, K2tog, K to last 3 stitches, K2tog, K1
2nd Cast off row:    Slip 1, P2tog, P to last 3 stitches, P2tog, P1

Repeat these 2 rows until 3 stitches remain and then hold the petal on a stitch holder.

Make 5 more petals.

With the tail of the last petal, thread a yarn needle and thread through all the stitches being held on the stitch holder.  Pull firmly, secure and weave in the end of the yarn.  Weave in all other ends.

I 'half blocked' the cosy by stretching out the top of the petal and pinning it in place.  This is to ensure that the top of the cosy completely covers the egg and heat is not lost through loose petals.

Sew on yellow buttons and you are ready for your boiled eggs and toast.

Happy Knitting,

Louise
