Here’s what you’ll need:

  • For each egg, several yards of #6/super bulky yarn.  For extra squish, I used a chenille style yarn in that weight.  Yarn shown in the eggs in the pictures is Honey Bunny by Hobbii in Candy Floss, Lilac, Lemon Curd, and Pink color ways.
  • US 10 6.0 mm straight knitting needles
  • Poly Fill/Fiber Fill (if you don’t have this on hand, you can use yarn scraps, fabric scraps, or even cotton balls!)
  • Tapestry needle
  • Scissors

  • 3.5 inches tall
  • 7.5 inch circumference
