Last year I gifted my little mini crochet hat ornaments to friends of ours. When I received their thank you note it was accompanied by a picture of the hats sitting on top of their eggs.
I chuckled thinking that was such a cute idea and they thought it was a great idea for keeping their eggs warm at the breakfast table.
A win win really in my books.
So this year I thought I would tweak it just a little so we could make them up in worsted weight yarn instead of the bulky used for the Christmas ornaments.
The egg cups shown in these photos are from my childhood. I STILL remember when we got them. We did our egg hunt and hidden behind the dining room curtain was a Laura Secord box with these little egg cups.
My brother got blue, my sister got pink, and I got yellow. I still think these egg holders are the cutest – they make me smile whenever I pull them out. I seriously could not wait to see them with these little hats! 😊

To make the pompom I used the Clover 1 3/8 inch pom pom maker. Alternatively find anything that is about 1 1/2 to 2 inches in width a fork a piece of card board your two fingers! Have a look around for something to wrap your yarn around.
When making the pom poms the more yarn you wrap the denser the pom will be!
This doesn’t have to be exact, but this is how I made mine.
Wind yarn around cardboard 50 times till it is about 1 inch in width. Slide off cardboard and tie yarn around middle as tight as possible. Leave ends long for attaching to hat. Cut all loops and trim pom pom to size and shape desired. Attach to hat.
Now repeat the above and make as many of these adorable egg cozies as needed, wanted and desired!
Crochet a few up for last minute party or hostess gifts or make a bunch and string them along like a garland. What about making up these little hats in a favourite sports team colours or school colours – the possibilities are really endless.
Be sure to go into your scrap bin for this one – this is the perfect project for using up all those odds and ends.
I hope you all had fun making these – let me know – what colours did you chose?
