Crocheted egg cozy – tutorial

March 27, 2010 | Category: Crochet, DIY


I had a picture in my head of a cute egg cozy. I searched the internet for an example, but couldn’t find it. So I had to take the plunge and try myself from scratch. Here you can see the result, and I will share the pattern I made. Have fun and keep your eggs warm ^-^


  • Cotton yarn, for a 2,5 – 3 sized hook, in off-white and a few colours for the flowers.
  • 3,0 mm crochet hook
  • stitch marker
  • Darning needle

US terms: sc = single crochet


  • Start with an adjustable ring, chain 1 to fix
  • Round 1: 5 sc in the adjustable ring, slipstitch in the first sc
  • Round 2: 2 sc in each sc (10 sc) Don’t slipstitch at the end! (Use a stitch marker to mark the beginning)
  • Round 3: *1 sc in first sc, 2 sc in the second sc* repeat from * (15 sc)
  • Round 4: *1 sc in first sc, 2 sc in the second sc* repeat from * (22 sc)
  • Round 5: *1 sc in first sc, 1 sc in second sc, 2 sc in third sc* repeat from * (28 sc)
  • Round 6 – 14: 1 sc in each sc
  • Round 15: chain 3, slipstitch in first sc, *chain 3, slipstitch in next sc* repeat from *
  • Darn in the edges and create three flowers with a detached chain stitch and a french knot as flower heart.

    Ze zijn zoooo leuk! Ik ben er nog 2 bij aan het maken, hopelijk zijn ze klaar voor het paasontbijt morgenochtend… Al jaaaaren geen garen/haaknaald aangeraakt, maar so far so good, no. 1 is bijna af! Heb beetje moeite met de slip stitches…
    Fijne Pasen!
    Bisous, Chantal

    I love how delicate and sweet this crochet project turned out. Beautiful. I also adore the stitched bunny you created.

    Have you seen the one that escaped to Portugal? Check it here –
    Sorry for the lousy promotion :). The egg cups were bought in Amsterdam, many moons ago! I hope you like it.

    I’m new at crocheting and I made it all the way to the end :) But I can’t figure out what “darn in the edges” means. Can you help me? I have a huge fluffy ruffle on the edge instead of your neat “darned” look. Thank you :)!!
