Cupcake Egg Cosy

The kids seem to love lifting a Cupcake Egg Cosy to find a hard-boiled egg underneath. This is just a fun little knitting exercise that only takes minutes to make.

I used a fluffy "sugar wisp" wool in the cream and brown egg cosy and my daughter refers to it as "the wild one".

This is just a fun little knitting exercise that only takes minutes to make.
