Loom Knit Easter Egg Cozy

These eggcellent cozies are sure to delight children and adults alike this spring. If you are looking for a lighthearted, quick loom knit than this may be your next project. I made them on the Authentic Knitting Board 18" adjustable loom and each egg is sporting a different eggtastic look, the slouchy hat (so fashionable right now), the bunny, and the ski cap. It's the perfect eggccessory for the Easter basket this year!

Loom Knit Easter Egg Cosy Pattern
"Because eggs get chilly too"

Yarn: Lion Brand Pounds of Love, 100% Acrylic, Worsted Weight #4, Any Color, small amount needed. This is a good scrap project but gauge will matter somewhat, so test for size.

Gauge:  8 sts and 13 rows = 2 inches/5 cm in stockinette.

Sizes: Vary depending on hat. See below for measurements.

Pattern Key:  A loom knitting glossary is available at the top of this blog under the header picture, it contains pattern sts and video links.


  • Loom:  3/8" peg spacing round loom with 24 pegs, adjustable 18" Authentic Knitting Board used for sample.
  • Knitting tool
  • Crochet hook
  • Yarn needle
  • Fuzzy pom-poms for embellishment (optional)
Pattern Notes
  • Knit from the bottom up in the round.
  • Knitting is designed to roll at the brim but you can use ribbing if you prefer. Feel free to experiment.
  • Experiment with color and style: the stripes were made by changing color every 4 rows. Knit your egg a scarf to go with its' hat using garter stitch and 3 sts.

Egg Cozy
Foundation Round:  Chain CO24 pegs; join to work in the round.
Rnd 1:  Knit (regular knit st)
Repeat round 1 until total knitting measures 2 1/4"/5.7 cm for Bunny and ski cap and 3"/7.6 cm for slouchy hat.
Next row: move every 3rd stitch to the next peg, decreasing sts.
Next row: knit only the pegs that have sts on them.
Bind off using gather method.

Make Ears (bunny hat only)
Pick up 3 sts (you can pick up 4 if you want a wider ear than shown) on either side of the bunny hat. Make sure right side of knitting is facing you, encourage sts gently away from the hat and place on the loom, repeat until you have 3 or 4 sts on the loom. Leave a tail for weaving in when beginning the next row.
Row 1:  Purl
Repeat rnd 1 until total knitting measures 1 inch/2.5 cm. Make them longer if you want a more pronounced ear!
Next row:  K2tog, ssk. (hint: move the outer sts in one, decrease 2 sts, k2tog again on an additional row if you picked up 4 sts)
Chain one bind off.
