A true friend is someone who thinks that you are a good egg even though he knows that you are slightly cracked.-Bernard Meltzer

Sheep Of Delight Crochet
When I was a kid, I used to watch a Garfield cartoon at my Grandma’s with one character that was an egg that was afraid to hatch. Whether your Egglet is afraid to hatch or just making a fashion statement, he or she will be a perfect addition to any Easter basket. Feel free to make the Egg without legs if you’d like a more classic design.
If you are particularly sensitive to smell, you might want to use a different yarn as the Floral Bouquet yarn is scented.
