Crochet Egg Pincushion

My latest Eggcentricity!

Crochet Egg Pincushion

4 ply white yarn

3.00mm hook

A suitable eggcup


Make a circle and work 12 htr into it. Join to first st.

Cont. in rounds, making 2ch for height – but this does not count as a stitch.

Round 2 Work 2 htr into each stitch

Rounds 3 & 4 Work 1htr into each st.

Round 5 Inc in every 3rd st

Work 4 rounds straight

Work 3 htr, dec 1 to end

Work 1 round straight

Dec 1 all round

Stuff firmly.

Break off yarn, leaving a long thread for making up.

Thread needle with the yarn and run through the circle left. Pull up and fasten off by sewing a few sts. This will be the end that goes in the eggcup! (You may want to glue the egg in if it needs it).
