On a whim yesterday I decided to use an old Fair Isle pattern from my machine knitting days to make a hand knit egg cosy! I wrote up the pattern today and would like to share it with you here Fair Isle Chicks Egg Cosy
These cute Fair Isle Chicks look gorgeous decorating an egg cosy for your Easter breakfast table, however they could also be used on any number of projects – hats, mittens, scarves and so on.
You could also use the cosy to cover chocolate eggs for the children as an Easter surprise!
The cosy is an easy and quick knit, an ideal first Fair Isle project, why not make more than one using different colour combinations.
I want some peace!
The clicking sound of knitting needles awoke me from my slumber. I curiously poked my head out of my lastest sleeping place and discovered that “the knitter in the house” was STILL working on the kitten booties. When will they be finished? I want a friend to keep me company!
Have just finished knitting Percival penguin, Peppy (the baby) soon to follow with the pattern for both!
The photo shoot was delayed by the invading cat, Basil strikes again!
- The Hoot Family – without Basil’s involvement!
They are finally complete! The Hoot Family, meet Harold (the Dad) Hilary (the Mum) and Happy (the baby)!
The pattern is availiable to purchase at: Folksy: http://http://www.folksy.com/items/2855186-Knitting-PDF-Pattern-The-Hoot-Family-Cute-Owl-Softies
