I join a craft club here in Stockholm called The Craft Lab and every month they have a challenge that every member could challenge their creativity and answer it. This August month is about ’Festival’ and when I heard it, the first time that came to my mind is Christmas. I tried to dig in and search what should I make when I came across a thought about Easter! Yes, Easter celebration and it would be quite cute for A later on to decorate her eggs. Then I search for some inspiration and I got it from Islaura blog with some adjusment because when I tried to follow the pattern the shape was not that cute as in the picture 😀
So this is my interpretation of ’Festival’ challenge host by The Craft Lab Stockholm.
Material : Schachemayr Nomotta Catania yarn ( 3 different colours)
Crochet hook : number 3
Abbreviations: sc (single crochet), sts (stiches), increase 2à1 ( work 2 single crochet in 1 stich), decrease 1à2 (work 2 stiches in one sc)
Round 1: Start with a magic circle, work 8 sc into the circle. (8 sts)
Round 2: 2à1 (16 sts)
Round 3 and 4: Work one round of sc. (16 sts)
Round 5: *1 sc, then 2 sc in the next stich.* Repeat it for the whole round. (24 sts)
Round 6: Work one round of 1 sc. (24 sts)
Round 7: *1 sc, then 2 sc in the next stich.* Repeat it for the whole round. (32 sts)
Round 8-13: Work one round of 1 sc. (32 sts)
Slip stich, fasten off and weave in the yarn ends.
I made two of this.
Make 13 chain and work 1 sc around it with 2à1 the end of those 13 sts, so your round would have 25 sts. Change your yarn and work 1 sc one more round and with 2à1 at half way you make the round. So you will have 26 sts in your round.
I made two of this.
Round 1: Work 5 chain.
Round 2: Work 5 sc in the chain. (5 sts)
Round 3: *3 sc, 1à2* Decrease (4 sts)
Roung 4: *2 sc, 1à2* Decrease (3 sts)
Round 5: *1 sc, 1à2* Decrease (2 sts)
Round 6: 1à2 Decrease (1 st)
Round 7. Make 7 chain
Note: you can adjust or add the round of the cap depend on the size of your egg.
I am apologize for the pattern if you found it difficult to understand. This is the first time I wrote a pattern by myself. If you happen to live in Stockholm and has questions about this, we could meet up and I could show you how to make these bunny egg covers. Or, you could join us in The Craft Lab community which also has an Instagram account with the same name @thecraftlab and Facebook group . See you there 🙂
