You will need:

  • 3,5 mm crochet hook
  • stitch marker
  • velvet yarn
  • scissors
  • an egg

Abbreviations:

  • ch – chain
  • st – stitch
  • sc – single crochet
  • inc – 2 sc in one st (used to increase the number of stitches)
  • 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

First prepare the egg:
Make two small holes in the egg and blow in one of them to get out the insights of egg (hold the egg over a plate while doing that). Put the egg in an egg holder for an hour so the leftover eggwhite can drop out.
