A better nest

I wanted to improve the egg nest I wrote about in my last post and make it a bit sturdier. I used 2 stands of yarn and larger needles for the sides of the nest and that did the trick. The nest is no longer floppy and squishy and holds the eggs just fine. And the shape is better too.

The pattern is posted in the right side bar. The nest is a quick knit – about 2 1/2 hours start to finish.

Very cute. You could also use it for a teeny tiny toy chick or bunny. WHen I was little they had these little fluffy yellow chicks with orange wire feet.

I love your Easter bowls! What a great way to use furry yarn too. I may try a Lola version with some fuzz someday. Thanks for the inspiration!
