The Craft Hub: Chookie Egg Cozies


I'm over on The Craft Hub for the last time today.  It's been a pleasure working with Hobby Farms on these little home projects and for my last I thought I'd share some cute crocheted egg covers.

I'm calling them Chookie Egg Cozies as that's what we call boiled eggs in our house. I'm not sure why, I think it originated with my husband, but chookie eggs they always are. If you are anything like us, then the 'chookie' egg is something of an event in the household. The family gathers and waits expectantly for the eggs to be ready, egg cups of various designs are selected with care by each member and then egg cozies of various shapes and sizes are chosen. Because it is surely some kind of unwritten rule that you can not only have one egg.

These cozies are incredibly simple to make but that doesn't mean you can't get creative with the designs if you want too. You can use up yarn scraps, play with colour, keep them plain, make stripes, work half and half, up to you! But make sure you have enough for everyone, because they'll all want to make sure their spare eggs are the best dressed at the table.

Find out how to keep your own eggs warm over on The Craft Hub with the Chookie Egg Cozy Tutorial.

  6. Brilliant. We love boiled eggs in this house, I can imagine that little egg cosies would go down a storm. I really need more egg cups as well. And maybe some chickens... Enjoy the rest of the weekend Sandra. CJ xx

  7. Love the egg cosies! I think they would make sweet little bags to put treasures in if they were sewn up at the bottom!

  8. Hi Sandra! How cute!!! I think it's the bow that makes it extra special, a bit like the wrapping and ribbon on a present! :)
    Have a nice week!!

  10. Hi, it's also not working for me. It takes you to the website, but says that the page doesn't exist. It worked when I first looked when you first posted, but isn't working now. I think there is a problem over on the hobbyfarms website. I think the page has accidentally been removed or something.

    When I search for egg cosies on their page it even comes up in the list - but when I click to go into it, I get the same message.

    I hope they fix it, I was about to make one!! :)
