MAKING THE BODY
HDC into 2nd ch from hook and in rest of 20 sts. Then pivot your work and start working in the bottom stitches. Start but doing another HDC into last stitch worked and continue down the bottom stitches until you have 20 sts. You should have 40 stitches total now. Place a marker in the beginning stitch.
Rounds 2 – 5
working in one continuous round, HDC in all 40 sts around for the next 4 rounds. When you get to the end of round 5, sl st into beginning st.
Rounds 6 – 9
ch 1, * HDC FP on post of first stitch, then HDC BP onto post of next stitch * repeat what is in between *’s for rest of round. At the end of a round, sl st into top if first HDC FP and chain 1 and repeat what is in between *’s after round 9, sl st into last stitch, ch 1 cut yarn. Work in tail.
MAKING THE TAIL
Wrap the yarn around 3 fingers 10 times. Leaving a long tail, cut your yarn. Take it off your fingers and TIGHTLY wrap it around the opposite direction 3 times forming a bow. Take your hook and insert it under the tight wrap you just did and pull the tail through just enough to make a loop, pull tail through this new loop to tighten.
When sewing on the tail, go in through the back top corner stitch from the top and then come back up through the middle of the tight wrapping. Repeat at least 3 more times, tie knot inside the cozy.
MAKING THE WHISKERS
Repeat what you did when making the tail, only difference is wrap it around only 3 times. Don’t forget to make sure you leave enough tail to sew onto your egg cozy.
I waited until I had the eyes and nose made, then I found a good spot just behind the nose to pull the whiskers in. Leaving the knot in the middle and my loops on either side of his face. Then I cut the loops.
MAKING THE EARS – MAKE TWO
With White – ch 7, sc into second ch from hook and next 5 sts. 6 sts total.
Attach your Pink – and ch 1 and turn your ear where you are facing the back of it. Sc same stitch and in next 5, sc 3 into tip, then sc 1 in the next 5 stitches along other side. Ch 1, cut yarn leaving a long tail to use to sew onto your egg cozy.
MAKING THE EYES
With Black – remember you will be looking at it from the side so you need to make sure the eyes are shown well from the sides and front. Using your Tapestry needle, thread a long tail of black, tie a knot on other side. Then doing you best to find a good spot, starting from inside the cozy, come out and back into another stitch. Do this a few times, always going back into original stitch.
MAKING THE NOSE
With your Black yarn -sing your Tapestry needle, thread a long tail of black, tie a knot on other side. Then doing you best to find a good spot for the bottom of the nose, starting from inside the cozy, come out and back into another stitch diagonally. Do this this again going diagonal the other direction, always going back into original stitch. Do this 4 or 5 times to fill in center of nose, working your way right to left.
