Basket of Easter Eggs Tea Cosy

Whilst knitting a scarf for a little girl; I have been inspired. I love the beautiful pastel shades together, they make me think of Easter, and these wonderful colours are going to be used in the Basket of Easter Eggs Tea Cosy.

Basket of Easter Eggs Tea CosyAlthough I have been inspired by the colours for the Basket of Easter Eggs Tea Cosy, I won't be using the Entrelac pattern. I have been inspired by other scarf patterns for how I can achieve the basket part of the cosy. It's a bit of an experiment, but it will be perfect for all those challenging Tea Cosy junkies!

I'm not sure yet how I shall keep the handle in an elevated position, I will need to work on this. Also with wicker baskets you get lots of twisted parts, and I have an idea for this that doesn't include cabling, I saw an interesting trick pop up in my Facebook feed and thought I'd try it out.

I love the way the painted eggs look against the green grass, so I have included a green background to my basket. I want to keep the eggs a simple as possible. I don't think that they need to be too fussy, maybe just simple patterns and maybe even embroidery.

I love crocuses, they are so cheerful and are one of the first signs of spring. So I want to include a couple of purple crocus flowers in the basket arrangement. I love the purple ones best, I love the purple petals with the orange staymens - eye popping!

I did think if you weren't into the pagan thing of Easter eggs, you could knit yourself a basket of crocuses - which would be an Easter sensation. If you make one - show me!!
