Winter Breakfast Decoration: Egg Cosy Crochet Hat

Here is very simple way to make a regular breakfast become special! It took 2 hours to make the egg cosy.

This patter is also available  on Instagram!

You will need:

  • 3.5 mm or 4 mm crochet hook
  • Salmon colour yarn recommended for the hook
  • Scissors
  • Needle and string
  • Pompon or anything you want to use for decoration of the hat


  • ch – chain
  • sl st – slip stitch
  • st – stitch
  • sc – single crochet
  • dec – 2 sc together (used to decrease the number of stitches)
  • X 6 – repeat 6 times
  • at the end of every round total number of stitches is shown in brackets



We start with the ribbing, make 5 ch (the last, 5th ch is a turning ch)
Rounds 1-36: sc in next 4 st IN BACK LOOPS ONLY, 1 turning ch (4)

Round 36: now we are going to close the rubber. Insert the hook in the last st of the last and the first rounds at the same time, make sl st in next 4 st (4)

Now we are crocheting the “body” of the hat. So I start counting the rounds again.

Round 1: 1 ch, sc in next 36 st (36)

Round 2: (sc in next 4 st, dec) X 6 (30)
Round 3: sc in all st (30)
Round 4: (sc in next 3 st, dec) X 6 (24)
Round 5: sc in all st (24)
Round 6: (sc in next 2 st, dec) X 6 (18)
Round 7: sc in all st (18)
Round 8: (sc in next st, dec) X 6 (12)
Round 9: sc in all st (12)
Round 10: (dec) X 6 (6)
Round 11: sc in all st (6)
Round 12: Closing the hat: dec, skip 1 st, sl st, fasten off, cut the yarn and weave in all ends.

Now sew the pompon, decorate the hat and it is finished!


Invite guests for a cosy Sunday breakfast and decorate the table!


Merry Christmas! Ho Ho Ho!
