Women's clothing size
With your arms relaxed at your sides, measure around the fullest part of your chest.
Measure around the narrowest part of your natural waist, generally around the belly button. To ensure a comfortable fit, keep one finger between the measuring tape and your body.
It is a wonderful tradition to give an Easter egg filled with chocolate and even better when you crochet the egg yourself, making it very personal and something to use year after year.
The cardboard egg in the photo is painted with golden paint on the inside and white paint outside.
You can use the cardboard egg as it is, but it gives it an elegant touch to wrap with paper or paint it, as shown in the photos.
Make sure that the food items that you put inside the egg are wrapped to avoid contact with materials that might not be intended for food contact. Maybe use a colorful piece of parchment paper, cellophane or something else that will make the inside of the egg look festive.
The eggs in the photos are made in cl. no. 1 and gold Shiny metallic yarn.
The two-piece egg is approx. 13.75 cm high and 10,25 cm diameter, after assembly.
You can also find the pattern in the book "Hæklet nordisk påskepynt - Crochet Nordic Easter Decorations".
