Materials:
  • H (5.0 mm) crochet hook 
  • Small amounts of size 4 yarn (I used Chic Sheep from Red Heart in "Creme De Mint" "Vineyard" and "Mai Tai"
  • Artificial Eggs (I used some white painted plastic ones, but use what you like!)
  • Glue (I wanted an instant bond, so I used hot glue, but other glues like school glue or craft glue would work too)
  • Tapestry Needle 
  • Scissors 
  • Tape Measure


Instructions:

Chain 7

Row 1: Work (2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) in the 5th ch from the hook.  Work a dc into the last chain.

Row 2: Ch 3 and turn.  Work (2 dc, ch 1, 2 dc) into the ch 1 space (center of the fan) from the previous row.  Work a dc into the turning chain space.

Repeat row 2 until your band is long enough to comfortably wrap around your egg snugly without too much stretching.  I did a total of 9 rows for mine.

Fasten off, weave in all eggs.  If you want your band to be removable you can seam the ends together to slip on and off.  If you want a more permanent bond.  you can glue the band right onto the egg.  Let glue completely dry before using.
