Pattern Description:

Do you know the little shaker eggs that the music teacher hands out to the little ones at music class? Now you can make your own! I made some 4 years ago, and they still are in existence.

  • Soft worsted weight yarn - I used Caron Simply Soft - scraps
  • US Size 4 double pointed needles

You Will Also Need:

  • 2.25 inch size plastic eggs
  • scissor
  • duct tape
