Why not dress your dolls house for Easter? Instructions are given both for eggs with hangers (as shown above) for displaying on twigs and without hangers, so eggs can be displayed in a basket or bowl.

The penny shown is the new design of the UK penny and is identically sized to the old version (approximately 2 cm diameter) which is shown in other photos on the web shop.

Materials required: small plastic or Fimo eggs (approx ¼-inch/0.60 cm long), 0.40 mm crochet hook, No 100 crochet cotton (however this only comes in white or Ecru) or thin sewing cotton (which comes in a variety of colours – including multicoloured – as used in photos, may be preferred, but make sure it is cotton and not a man-made fibre.) Bowl or thin twigs to display eggs.

Note: The hanger on the eggs may be omitted if you wish to display them in a bowl or basket

Gauge – this is not really important for this project as miniature eggs can be any size and the crochet will stretch to cover.

Pattern price £1.25 (NOTE: EU VAT or other digital taxes will be added to price where applicable)
