Crochet Pattern - Egg Cosy

My first pattern...

Crochet Pattern - Egg Cosy

I can't believe it's March already, it seems like only yesterday I was feeling that post Christmas drag and thinking Spring would be ages away - so Hooray for Spring!

I've been asked if I could make some egg cosies so I have been playing around with patterns.

Part of me craves the peace that comes with the children being at school the other part of me dreads the routine. I've not found the time to do much crochet at all but one small project I did complete was made with the crocheted leftovers from my last cushion cover...
