Basic Egg Cozy Variation

Here is the second pattern in my Easter Egg Cozy series.  It's a very simple and classic variation that won't be difficult at all after you've mastered the original pattern. (P.S. If you find the French Knots too troublesome or too dull, feel free to decorate with any needle stitching you like).
