Every Easter time the bunnies come out and want to play, making great gifts for children, family and friends.

A Novelty Egg Cosy

I don’t know if any of you have a collection of egg cups stashed away, but we seem to have a box full.

But I don’t have any egg cozies to go with them, this is where the pattern comes in handy.

Not only are they (a little bit?) practical but they look cute and if you do a special Easter breakfast for the kids then they will fit right in!

Easter Bunny And Eggs

My friend always makes an Easter breakfast for her kids, with Cadbury’s egg nests, creme eggs (plenty of chocolate on the menu!), and handmade Easter-themed decorations too.

This fluffy bunny egg cozy will fit right in, made in traditional colors or in your own color choices. 

Surrounded by novelty egg cups, chocolate eggs, painted eggs, and more, this holiday will be an explosion of color in your home!

Making The Bunny Egg Cosy

The cozy is made in three pieces, the head (main piece) which fits over the egg, and two Easter bunny ears. 

All of the pieces are knit flat and then seamed and stitched into place.

The yarn I used was Sirdar Snuggly Snowflake Chunky in milky and pink. 

This is a great yarn to work with and can be used for so many baby and kids projects.

The texture is so soft and squishy so would be awesome for hats, blankets, and toys.

A Fluffy Bunny Tail?

You could also add a small fluffy pom tail to the back of the bunny body if you wish.

I was going to and then forgot…

I do think a fluffy tail would look awesome though!

You could do this by creating a small pom pom from the same yarn and stitching it into place on the back piece.
