The egg covers are designed to fit Cadbury Creme Egg style eggs wrapped in foil.  If the eggs where you are come in the new plastic casing, use worsted weight yarn and a 4mm hook.

All  rounds are worked in the continuous round unless specifically stated. You may wish to use a stitch marker.

Increase – Work 2 stitches into one stitch from the previous round.

Decrease – Working over two stitches from the previous round to create one stitch.

To make a French knot:-  Wrap yarn at least twice around your needle keeping it as tight as possible.

Pass the needle through the yarn from the front to the back as close to your starting hole as possible but NOT the same hole. Slowly pull the yarn through and you will have created a French Knot.

Please note all the animals use the same basic patterns with a few additions (see separate notes)
