I have many friends who love Dr Who, so for Xmas 2010 I decided to make them all Dalek egg cosies. As I couldn't find a suitable pattern, I created my own. Its been available free of charge online since then on my blog and via Ravelry. As this was my first pattern, it has room for improvement as my skills were more basic back then! However, I have now updated it slightly to add instructions for turning your egg cosy into a stuffed toy / plushie. This is ideal for all ages as it has no hard bits that can be swallowed by small children. It is pretty quick and easy to make and uses very little yarn so is a great stash buster. It can be made with any size yarn, the bigger the yarn, the bigger your finished item. This dalek is not anatomically correct as I wanted to keep it simple, However, with a few simple adjustments (such as adding another row of bobbles and a couple of dome lights) you could make it more accurate.
