I crocheted some quick and easy bunny-shaped egg cozies for a project I’m doing with the video app TikTok, so I decided to post this pattern for free here for you guys! I don’t have exact yardage, and I don’t have step out photos, but hopefully the pattern is SO EASY that you won’t need much visual help. I hope you have a very Happy Easter! Enjoy!

Materials (contains affiliate links) Easter Bunny Egg Cozy – Body
  • With H hook and whatever color you choose for the cozy color, make magic circle, or ch 3 and sl st to 1st ch to form ring.

  • Sl st to next st to join. Break off and weave in ends.
Easter Bunny Egg Cozy – Ears (Make 2)
  • With H hook and whatever color you’re using for ears, make magic circle, or ch 3 and sl st to 1st ch to form ring.

Rnd 1: Ch 1, 6 sc into ring. Don’t join rnds. – 6 sts

Rnds 3-7: Sc evenly around. – 9 sts

Assembly
  1. Sew each ear to the top of the body.
  2. Use brown yarn and a tapestry needle to embroider any facial features like eyes. I chose to keep mine simple and just make closed eyes.
  3. You can make a super cute Easter display or gift by placing two Easter Bunny Egg Cozies (over real eggs or plastic ones) in a little basket with faux grass or excelsior, surrounded by candy!

Head:

With Honey and H hook, make magic circle, or ch 3 and sl st to 1st ch to form ring.

Round 1: Ch 2 and work 10 hdc into circle. Sl st to top of 1st hdc to join. (10 sts)

Round 2: Ch 2, work (2 hdc) 10 times. Sl st to top of 1st hdc to join. (20 sts)

Round 3: Ch 2, [(2 hdc), 1 hdc] 10 times. Sl st to 1st hdc to join. (30 sts) Do not break off. Continue to work in rows for the body.

Body:

Row 1: Ch 2 and hdc in same space (go thru both loops to avoid making a hole), 4 more hdc evenly across. (5 sts) Turn.

Rows 2-3: Ch 2, 5 hdc. Turn. (5 sts). Do not break off. Continue to work on one of the legs.

Leg #1:

Row 4: Ch 2, and 2 hdc evenly, leaving remaining sts unworked (2 sts). Turn.

Row 5: Ch 1, skip one hdc, and (3 sc) and sl st in last hdc. Break off.

Leg #2:

With wrong side of the cookie facing you, insert hook into 2nd to last hdc of body Row 3.

Row 1: Repeat Row 4.

Row 2: Ch 1, turn. 3 sc in 1st stitch. Sl st in last st and break off.

Arms:

Insert hook where head and body join and work moving away from the head.

Row 1: Ch 2 and hdc in same space. Hdc in next hdc. Turn. (2 sts)

Row 2: Ch 2, and hdc in same space. Hdc in next hdc. Break off.

Repeat Rows 1-2 on the other side of the body.

Weave in all ends, making sure especially that there isn’t a big hole in the middle of the face where your magic ring was.

To work the white Icing, insert hook into crotchal area (I find this is the most logical place to hide any inconsistency), and with White, sl st evenly along the edge of the cookie. Exercise control while you sl st around. These sl sts should NOT warp the cookie in any way. If your cookie is starting to curl inward, you are sl st’ing too tightly or too far apart. You do want the sl sts to look as uniform as possible. When you go all the way around and get back to the crotchal area, I cut the yarn and just pull the tail all the way up and out of the top of the cookie and then use a tapestry needle to weave it back down to the back of the cookie to tie off and weave in the end. I think this looks more clean than breaking off the normal way, but you can figure out what works best for you, too.

To work the Smile, use Pink and sl st evenly along the spaces between Rnd 2 and Rnd 3 of the head, which form a perfect smile guide. Break off and weave ends into the back of the cookie.

Glue on eyes and pompoms!

If you’ve been following my social media at all, you’ll know that I designed and crocheted this little pastel gingerbread village for my local yarn shop, ImagiKnit, here in San Francisco. With a full-time job, I definitely would not have been able to pull this off without help from two of my trusty crochet elves and my bff. It was a team effort! And we made a village!

Here’s a video of it in action, because the coolest part of the display is the yarn-bombed electric train!

Crocheted Gingerbread Village with Crocheted Train at ImagiKnit in San Francisco | Twinkie Chan - YouTube

The little people/elves that inhabit this village were heavily inspired by Mochimochi Land’s gnomes. I made little wire stands for them so that they could stand up in the display.

Manda helped me lay out the village, and we decided that a Big Tree in the center would be perfect. Time was really not on my side, so while I would’ve loved to crochet a tree, I decided to yarn-wrap a styrofoam cone instead. Still cute!

And no snowy village is complete without abominable snowmen or yetis! This pattern is based on the Abominable Snowman crochet class I have on Creativebug, but this one is a big smaller and constructed slightly differently. While I was taking photos of the window, a woman and her son were watching the train go around. When her son realized that the monster was eating a person, he said he didn’t like it! Sorry, kiddo!

I hope that if you’re a Bay Area local, you’ll get a chance to stop by ImagiKnit. If the train isn’t going, just ask them! I’ll provide links to various crochet patterns in this project in the next few blog entries.

McDonald’s (!!!) approached me to help promote global #McDelivery Day, which is this Thursday, July 19! Order McDonald’s via UberEats on Thursday whenever lunch starts (10:30am or 11:30am depending on where you live), and you’ll get the chance to order FREE McDonald’s swag while supplies last at participating locations! You can go to McDeliveryAtMcDonalds.com for the downlow and see the 90’s inspired goodies they are offering that day. I’m particularly into the bandana, socks, and t-shirts, and I’m running an enamel pin giveaway on my Instagram!

To celebrate, I decided to make myself a french fry purse, because I still believe that McDonald’s fries are THE BEST FRIES. You can either make this a handbag or a cross body. I had people vote on Instagram, and the cross body won. Basically you can make the strap what ever length you want ;).

If you end up getting goodies on McDelivery Day, let me know what you picked! (P.S. This jean jacket is rad! Thank you, Ronald!)

O rings or D rings about an inch in diameter
H8/5.00mm & L11/8.00mm crochet hooks

Gauge:
Exact gauge isn’t particularly important, but I’m giving you what I worked with.

Lion Brand Hometown USA: 11 sc = 4 inches

Finished Measurements:
7 inches wide at widest point
6 inches tall, measuring back of the box, excluding french fries

Box Front


With Red and H hook, ch 23.
Row 1: Sk 1st ch from hook, sc evenly across. – 22 sts
Rows 2-4: Ch 1, turn. Sc evenly across. – 22 sts
Row 5: Ch 1, turn. 3 sc, (2 sc), sc evenly across. – 23 sts
Rows 6-9: Ch 1, turn. Sc evenly across. – 23 sts
Row 10: Ch 1, turn. 3 sc, (2 sc), sc evenly across. – 24 sts

Row 22a: Ch 1, turn. Sk 1 st, sl st, 7 sc. – 8 sts

Row 24a: Ch 1, turn. Sk 1 st, 6 sc. – 6 sts
Row 25a: Ch 1, turn. 6 sc. – 6 st

Insert hook into 9th free st from Row 20.

Row 24b: Ch 1, turn. 6 sc.
Row 25b: Ch 1, turn. 6 sc.
Row 26: Ch 1, turn. You’ll now crochet a border around the top of the French Fry Box. 5 sc, (2 sc) in the last st. Then work along the sides of Rows 21b-25b, 5 sc evenly. Now you should be working in the unworked sts from Row 20, 8 sc evenly. Now work along the sides for Rows 21a-25a, 5 sc evenly. Now you should be working in the 1st st of Row 25b, (2 sc), 5 sc.

Break off and weave in all ends.

Box Back


With Red and H hook, ch 23.
Rows 1 – 25: Repeat Rows 1-25 of Box Front.
Row 26: Ch 1, turn. Sc evenly. – 27 sts

Don’t Break off.

Now we will work around the 3 sides of the Box Back to create depth for the purse. We’re leaving the top open for fries and your stuff!

Row 27: Rotate your work 90 degrees so that you can work down the side of Rows 1-26. Ch 1, work 25 sc evenly down the side, then work 22 sc evenly across the bottom, then work 25 sc back up the other side. – 72 sts
Rows 28-31: Ch 1, turn. Sc evenly around. – 72 sts

Break off leaving an arm length of yarn for sewing and weave in other end.

Fries (Make 2)


Use Yellow and L hook.

You can vary the length of the fries by increasing the chs and the scs. I’ll provide one example. The 2 panels of Fries should have different lengths of fries for a better overall look, so please feel free to experiment with your second panel. There will be 7 fries on each panel.

Don’t work your chs too tightly, or else your Fries might curl too much.

Fry #1: Ch 13, sk 1st 2 chs from hook, hdc, sc in remaining chs. – 11 sts
Fry #2: Ch 16, sk 1st 2 chs from hook, hdc, sc in remaining chs. – 14 sts
Fry #3: Ch 14, sk 1st 2 chs form hook, hdc, sc in remaining chs. – 12 sts
Fry #4: Ch 12, sk 1st 2 chs from hook, hdc, sc in remaining chs. – 10 sts
Fry #5: Ch 16, sk 1st 2 chs from hook, hdc, sc in remaining chs. – 14 sts
Fry #6: Ch 13, sk 1st 2 chs from hook, hdc, sc in remaining chs. – 11 sts
fry #7: Ch 15, ck 1st 2 chs from hook, hdc, sc in remaining chs. – 13 sts

Break off and weave in both ends.

If your Fries are bending or twisting more than you like, you can always experiment with blocking them. I’m kind of too lazy to ever do that, to be honest!

Purse Strap:
With White and L hook, work 3 pieces of yarn at the same time. Simply ch tightly for as long as you want the strap. Use your body to measure. Make it a few inches shorter than you like because the strap will probably stretch out a little.

Assembly:

  1. With Yellow and L hook, surface crochet an M on the Box Front.

2. Pin down, and then with yellow thread, sew 1 Fries panel to the back of Box Front and the other Fries panel to the front of  Box Back, being careful that your stitches don’t show through on the opposite side. I make sure that the Right Side of both Fries panels faces the front of the box. To try to help keep each Fry as upright as possible, I sew up the length of each one. The front Fries panel is tucked about an inch lower than the Box Front, and to maintain the same height in the back Fries panel, the back Fries panel is tucked about 2-3 inches lower. Just pin everything first to make sure you like the look before committing to sewing.

3. Pin Box Front to Box Back. With long Red yarn tail, whipstitch the pieces together.

4. I sewed white O rings to the sides of my purse and then tied the ends of the Purse Strap to the O rings.

5. If you like, glue eyes on to each fry. I used safety eyes, but I snapped the posts off with wire cutters and attached them with super glue.

Enjoy!

Happy National Bomb Pop Day!

I know the day is almost over, but, to be honest, I had no idea it was National Bomb Pop Day until I was already at work and saw someone post about it on my Instagram feed!

I made these Bomb Pop Pen Cozies last year, and now you can make some, too! I don’t have step-out photography, so hopefully some of you will be able to follow along just with text. When I get the chance to shoot step-out photography, I’ll probably remove the pattern from my blog and then put it in my Etsy shop. Please enjoy it until then!

Materials:

Beige: Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice in Beige

With I hook and Beige, ch 5 and sl st to 1st ch to form ring.

Work 5 sc into ring and continue to work sc evenly in a spiral, without joining rounds, until your tube is 5 inches long. Try it on the pen before breaking off, making sure it’s neither too short nor too long. Sl st to next st to join. Break off and use your tapestry needle to draw up loops from the remaining 5 sts and pull closed. The other end has the opening to insert the pen.

Popsicle:

With Red, make magic circle, or ch 3 and sl st to 1st ch to form ring.

Rnd 1: 6 sc. Don’t join.

Rnd 2: (2 sc) 6 times. Sl st to next st to join, but not too tightly since you’ll need to work in it like a regular stitch later. – 12 sts

  • Break off leaving approx. 18 inches of yarn for sewing.

Weave in all other ends.

Assembly:

  • Finish stuffing Rocket Pop, not super firmly, but firmly enough to maintain the shape.
  • Insert Popsicle Stick (with pen inside) about 1.5 inches. Make sure there is some stuffing at very bottom of the Popsicle around the opening and around the end of the Popsicle stick, or else the Popsicle Stick will be really wiggly. You want to give it a good foundation, and you don’t want loose, floppy, falling over pen cozies. Getting into stuffing into this spot can be tricky once the Stick is in.
  • Use the Popsicle yarn tail to sew Popsicle to Popsicle Stick.

It was Harvey Milk’s birthday on May 22nd, and in celebration, the Castro neighborhood here in San Francisco hosts Windows for Harvey, a celebration in which local merchants host art installations inspired by Harvey and his legacy. This year’s theme was “equality,” and the Castro Fountain asked if I would create an installation for their window.

I sketched and envisioned A LOT of different concepts before deciding on this one. A big part of me wanted to make a bunch of smaller items to fill the window, so that people might be more willing to purchase a piece of it at a lower price. But ultimately, I felt like the big triple scoop ice cream cones would make a bigger and more fun visual impact. They are over 5 feet tall!

This is from my artist statement/description posted in the window:

“For Harvey Milk’s birthday, I wanted to crochet a treat that was not only sweet but also highlighted Milk’s legacy and fight for equality. Both crochet and ice cream can have nostalgic qualities that take many of us back to a more innocent time, perhaps a time before we became aware of our differences, or that difference could ever be seen as a bad thing. Milk encouraged us to embrace each other, whether we are pink, yellow, or green, and to always give each other hope.”

Big crochet is super floppy and a little heavy, so I backed both pieces in thick foam board. Manda helped me out a lot by cutting the board, since I was so short on time.

Today is the last day you can view it. I think I’m supposed to take it down tonight! Sorry I wasn’t able to blog about it sooner! If anyone local to SF is interesting in purchasing it, you can always email me. I still haven’t quite figured out the pricing, but I’d sell them together or as individual ice cream cones. Manda wants to keep them, but our house already has a lot of crochet :).

The Craft Yarn Council approached me again this year to create a new pattern for Stress Awareness Month (which was April!) after the success of our Lemon Stress Ball. This year, I decided to GO BIG with this huggable and squishable Lemon Pillow! We’re using big yarn and a big hook, so this big project should go by more quickly than you think. I have a video tutorial on YouTube for the visual learners, and the free pattern is below. A friendly, printable PDF has been available on stitchawaystress.com for the past few weeks, plus they have a knitted version, too!

I hope you have lots of fun adventures with your gigantic lemon!
