Create perfectly-proportioned eggs with this simple pattern.
Make them any size you like by varying your yarn and hook.
Embellish them further with stitching, beads, sequins etc, or just enjoy their natural beauty. These also work well if you make them in household string for the children to paint!
The pattern is fully illustrated with step-by-step colour photos, and is available in both UK and US terminology - you can choose whichever version you prefer to use.
All my patterns come with full support. If you have any difficulties, please e-mail me and I will be more than happy to help.

Little Conkers exists to help you get the most from your time and pennies - whether you're making something for yourself or as a gift - as a way of spreading the joy of creativity.
I know that, for many people, creativity is often fitted into the slivers of time that you can find between all the other "must dos" in your life. But you know that making something yourself means it can be exactly what you need, look exactly how you want and can give you untold pleasure day after day.
My sewing and crochet patterns are specifically designed with the time-strapped and frugal in mind, requiring no superfluous equipment and including practical suggestions on how to up-cycle materials wherever possible.
I am a real person, and always love to hear from my customers all around the world. All my patterns come with my full e-mail support, so do feel free to ask any questions you may have. Enjoy your creating!
