Egg Cozies Easter Project - Flower


Krawka: Egg cozies - colorful Easter flowers for a table decoration or to Easter basket

Those spring, colorful crochet flowers looks great as a decoration not only for Easter table. I would love to see the whole set of them all in different colors to cozy a dozen of eggs.

I strongly recommend this pattern for everyone who is starting to learn crocheting. All You need is a crochet hook (3 mm) and few colors of yarn, 3 at least green, yellow and one other color for petals
( I use the yarn which gauge is 24.0 to 30.0 sts = 4 inches if You would like to know more please write me a message and I will tell You the exact yarn I use)
Back to pattern It's really easy to follow, very fast to make all the parts for flower plus it's not that much sewing which is important for the starting projects in which You don't have so much experience.

Abbreviation You will need to know to follow this pattern:

MR - magic ring - it's one of the most common ways to start amigurumi. It's easier to see than to write bout it so I would advise You to see how to make MR for example here:

It's not my video I'm only providing a link cause I think it's very clear and easy to follow.

sc - single crochet

sc 3 - make 3 single crochets in next 3 chains

inc - increase, make 2 single crochets in one chain

dec - decrease, make 1 crochet from 2 chains of last round
