Easter Ideas

As you will know I have designed a few little hats for innocent in the past for the Big Knit.  This got me thinking, with Easter almost upon us,  I could also use the hats as egg cosies.  So using  Alice in Wonderland as inspiration, I will be posting patterns, which are tried and tested for your enjoyment, I hope? 
Later on down the line perhaps they can be saved and revisited for the innocent Big Knit?  

Day 1 -  Teapot for that pesky Dormouse! 



Yarn:
Any DK weight yarn.

Use 4mm hook throughout.
