Pattern Description:

I don't know why, but every time I used to draw Easter eggs as a kid they were always zig-zaggy! I looked around for a zig-zaggy type design for an Easter egg and couldn't find one. After quite a few tries I finally realized that simple sometimes is best and went with just a plain shell stitch, very similar in design to my Stained Glass Cross Ornament.

Pattern includes 2 sizes- one to fit a plastic or real hardboiled egg approximately 2 1/2 inches tall, and the second to fit a larger egg about 3 1/5 inches tall.

Pattern is fashioned like a pouch, and is closed by gathering the opening together and tying off. This closing could be tied with a bow to make the egg removable if desired.
