Egg Flowered Pods Pattern
For the cozies I used sport yarn and 1.9 mm steel hook.
For the flowers I used embroidery floss and a 1.7mm steel hook.
Also you need sewing thread and needle to sew the flowers on.
The pattern below is for small eggs (53-63gr.).
Used stitches: chain (ch), single crochet (sc), half double crochet (hdc), single crochet 2 together (sc2tog), slip stitch (sl st).
Foundation: Ch 5 and join to make a ring.
Rnd 1: sc 6 in ring.
Rnd 2: sc2 in all stitches (12)
Rnd 3-4: repeat rnd 2 (24)
Rnd 5: sc1, sc2 (36)
Rnd 6: rep. rnd 5 (54)
Rnd 7: sc 1(54)
Rnd 9: sc1 (36)
Rnd 10: sc2tog (18)
If making it with round 10 leaves you with a small opening, than repeat rnd 9 once more and end the pod there.
Don’t cut yarn. You’ll be making the leaves.
Before we start, please note that I made the leaves different and not two are the same in stitch count. For example, I made the first with 7 stitches, the next one 11, the third 9 and so one. The leaves shouldn’t be very long because they will slop down. Also, while we are at them, when you are done, you can either wash them with a sprinkle of starch or spray them with fabric stiffener so that the leaves stay upright.
Ch 7 and starting from the second st from hook, sl st in first 2 st, then hdc1 in remaining 4. Sl st it in the next st, sc in the next to it. Sl st in the next and chain 11. Repeat the leaf pattern (sl st in 1st two st, hdc1 in remaining). Repeat making different sized leaves until you finish the round.
Now onto the flowers.
Using all the strands of the floss, ch 5 and sl st in the 1st st. Ch 5 and sl st in the 1st st of that chain. Repeat working this pattern until you have 5 such petals. Join the last one with the first one with a sl st. Tie both tails in a tight knot twice, thread the tails and weave them through. Work on the color arrangement.
Thread a sewing thread and sew the flowers on. And you are done!
