Knitting for Easter – is it all eggs?
Did you know we have a knitting kit for an egg cosy? No? Well, Tracy made the pattern for the lovely Al Paca and afterwards thought she should make him a friend, and Cate the egg cosy was born (as in dupliCATE). This made us think about what other things you could knit for Easter, and boy, there are lots! Here’s our top 5!
1. A bunny in a carrot!

How about a bunny hiding in a carrot shaped sleeping bag?? This cute Easter decoration from Tatyana Korobkova’s Ravelry store is super cute! She does some incredibly cute amigurumi, we love the little dolls with the fox tails!
2. A super stylish and cuddly rabbit!
|What a cutie from All Free Knitting.|
This minimalist and stylish rabbit would make a beautiful decorations in any home or a nice little soft toys for a child. This pattern would work well for any left overs you might have of our Purl Alpaca Fine!
3. Our very own Cate!
|Please don’t eat me!|
Who wouldn’t want an alpaca egg cosy? If you are looking for that something special for the Easter table our alpaca egg cosy would certainly do the job. It’s not too early to plan your projects for next year!
4. An angry, diapered, bunny boy!
|How cute is that tail?|
… that tail??? This might be the cutest thing we have ever seen. If only we did crochet. But for all you mulit-craftual people out there, this is a fantastic little gift idea and so amazingly cute by Darling Derriere Designs.
5. Two best friends – bunny and chick!
We’re pretty sure this is a viable friendship option in the wild. Just look how cute they are together? Loving the little beaded eyes! Great facial expressions too! Pattern can be found in Amanda Berry’s Ravelry store. Bunny would look very cute made in our Alpaca Dew yarn.
What’s on your needles this Easter? Tracy is working on a new pair of slippers and Kari-Helene is knitting away on a new design for the next collection!
Happy Easter, everyone!
Tracy, Kari-Helene and the alpacas! xxx
