To start the new round work 3 ch as first tr and then 10 more tr stitches into the ring, close round with ss.


Using the same colour work again 3 ch, 12 tr in between each of stitches from the previous round, close with ssl.


Connect another colour, work 3 ch to start the round, then work 2 tr into each space between tr from the round 2.

ROUND 4 – 8

  • Work 3 ch and then 1 tr into each space between tr from round 3, close with ss.
  • Continue like this until the end of round 8, changing colour of the yarn on the beginning of each round.
  • Work more than rounds 8 if it is required to cover half of the egg.
