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 and Lilac colorways.
  • US 10 6.0 mm straight knitting needles
  • Ribbon (I used narrow matching satin ribbon)
  • Tapestry needle
  • Scissors                                                    



  • 3.5 inches tall
  • 2.5 inches wide
  • 6.5 inch circumference
