  • Step 1

    Materials

    3.25mm needles

    Small amounts of DK yarn in three colours. I've used pink as an example.

    Yarn A = Dark pink

    Yarn B = Light pink

    Yarn C = White

  • Step 2

    Using A, cast on 5 stitches.

    Row 1. Purl

    Row 2. Knit 1. (Make 1, Knit 1) to last stitch. Knit 1. [8 stitches]

    Row 3. Purl

    Row 4. Knit 1. (Make 1, Knit 1) to last stitch. Knit 1. [14 stitches]

    Row 5. Purl

    Row 6. Knit 1. (Make 1, Knit 1) to last stitch. Knit 1. [26 stitches]

    Row 7. P

    Row 8. Knit 1. (Make 1, Knit 2) to last stitch. Knit 1. [38 stitches]

    Row 9. Purl

    Row 10. Knit, alternating 3 stitches yarn B with 3 stitches yarn C

    Row 11. Purl, alternating 3 stitches yarn B with 3 stitches yarn C, keeping pattern correct

    Row 12. Knit, alternating 3 stitches yarn B with 3 stitches yarn C

    Row 13. Purl, alternating 3 stitches yarn A with 3 stitches yarn B, keeping pattern correct (A should be above the square of B in the previous rows)

    Row 14. Knit, alternating 3 stitches yarn A with 3 stitches yarn B

    Row 15. Purl, alternating 3 stitches yarn A with 3 stitches yarn B

    Row 16 to 18. Repeat Rows 10 - 12

    Row 19. Change to A. Purl

    Row 20. Knit 1 (Knit 2 together) to last stitch. Knit 1 [20 stitches]

    Row 21. Purl

    Row 22. Knit 1 (Knit 2 together) to last stitch. Knit 1 [11 stitches]

    Row 23 Purl

    Row 24. Knit 1 (Knit 2 together) to last stitch. [6 stitches]

    Cut off yarn, thread through remaining stitches and pull tight. Use this end to sew together, either over a polystyrene egg (I used a 6cm egg) or stuff with fibrefill.

    Attach a ribbon in a coordinating colour.
