Crocheted easter egg stones

My dear Mother in Law brought me some stones that my youngest daughter had painted for her and asked me if I could ‘cozy’ them as she had seen in some of my posts. Of course I would and I spent the evening ‘Me-time’ this weekend making her these two pretty stone covers. They look a little like easter eggs and my Mother in Law was very happy when I gave them back to her! They are perfect for table decor around Easter, when gathering family and friends for a delicious meal – or to brighten up a windowsill, a little extra in a flower decoration or a collection of stones in a pretty bowl. Wherever you can think of! And you can make them too with this freebie crochet pattern.

Happy Hooking!

EASTER EGG STONE COVERS

YOU WILL NEED
Maxi Bonbon in colors Snow White, Bluebell, Lilac Mist and Delphinium
A 1.0 mm hook
A fine sewing needle to fasten ends
Two flat oval stones measuring approximately 5×7 cm and 7×9 cm in diameter – try to find stones slightly egg shaped

BEFORE YOU BEGIN
Stones are obviously very different and Bymami cannot guarantee a perfect fit from this pattern. You have to pay attention to the fitting throughout the process, to be able to add/skip a chain in appropriate places to fit the cover to your stone. Stone cozies are prettiest when fitted tightly and slightly stretched around the stone.
