Easter Crochet Chick Egg Cosy

A few weeks back, I was walking past a flee market store (there are a lot of them here in Vienna) and I saw a really cute Easter crochet chick egg cosy. I wanted to buy it but the store was closed, and when I came back a week later it was already sold. So I decided I make one myself. I browsed the net for some patterns but none of them looked quite like the one I saw in the store. So I decided to design a pattern myself :)

You can either download the pattern as PDF or just look at it here on my blog. Happy crocheting :)
