These are a little quirky and a whole lot of fun. Add some eggs to your next outfit!

Quirky Crochet Pattern: Egg Wrist Cuffs

What you need

For Cuffs - worsted weight wool (I used about a third of a hank of Cascade 220)- charcoal
For eggs - worsted weight wool (I used leftovers from my Cascade 200 stash) - cream & yellow
US size F hook
Tapestry needle
Fiberfil



Instructions

Gauge: Not incredibly important

Abbreviations: beg – beginning ch – chain Rep/rep – repeat Rnd/rnd – round Rnds/rnds – rounds sc – single crochet sl st – slip stitch st – stitch sts – stitches

Basic Ribbed Cuff (Make 2) * Pattern is worked in the round. Each round begins with a ch 1 and ends with a sl st in beginning sc to join.

* Basic ribbed pattern requires work to be turned after the completion of each round.

Foundation Rnd – ch 1, being careful not to twist, sl st in beginning ch st to join

Rnd 1 – ch 1, 1 sc in same ch as sl st used to join foundation rnd, 1 sc in each of the remaining 29 ch sts, sl st to beg sc to join rnd (30 sts total)

Rnd 2 – ch 1, 30 sc, sl st to join rnd, turn

Rnd 3 – ch 1, working in back loops only 30 sc, sl st to join rnd, turn

Rnd 4 – ch 1, 30 sc, sl st to join rnd, turn Rep rnds 3 and 4 until your cuff fits snug around your wrist, yet still able to slide over your hand (I worked mine until I had 18 ribs completed). Fasten off.

Cuff Finishing

Working one cuff “tube” at a time, pin ends of cuff tube together and sc around entire pinned tube to close opening. Weave in ends and flatten out joined tube to wear as a cuff. Fried Egg (Make 2) *Pattern is worked in the round.

Each round begins with a ch 1 and ends with a sl st in beginning sc to join.

Rnd 1 (Yellow) – ch 2, 8 sc in 2nd ch from hook, sl st to join rnd

Rnd 2 – ch 1, 2 sc in every st, sl st to join rnd (16 sts total)

Rnds 3 & 4 – ch 1, 16 sc, sl st to join rnd, break off yellow

Rnd 5 (Cream) – attach cream, ch 1, (1 sc, 2 sc next st) 8 times, sl st to join rnd (24 sts total)

Rnd 6 – ch 1, (2 sc, 2 sc next st) 8 times, sl st to join rnd (32 sts total)

Rnd 7 – ch 1, (3 sc, 2 sc next st) 8 times, sl st to join rnd (40 sts total)

Rnd 8 – ch 1, (4 sts, 2 sts next st) 8 times, sl st to join rnd, fasten off (48 sts total) * For rnd 8 use a combination of stitches (sc, hdc and dc) at random to create an uneven edge. I suggest building curves. Working up a curve by using sc first, then hdc and finally, dc for the apex. Diminish the curve by using dc first, then hdc, finishing it off with sc.

Egg Finishing

Working one egg/cuff combination at a time, place a bit of fiberfill in the concave side of the yellow portion (yolk) of the egg. Pin egg to cuff and tack down cream portion of egg (closest to yolk) using a length of leftover cream yarn. It is preferable to only sew through egg and first layer of cuff. Weave in any ends.

Repeat process for remaining cuff and egg combo. Slip embryos on your wrists and enjoy!
