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).

Love this egg. Now have a use for all those egg cups that came with chocolate Easter eggs. Can't wait to try it. Looks easy enough and shouldn't take too long. New to crochet. May make them and then donate for charity if that's allowed?
