Princess Leia Egg Cosy

The first of my Star Wars egg cosies to be uploaded, I'll try and get more done over the next couple of weeks.

You'll see that I don't do faces on my egg cosies, this is just a personal preference, please add faces to them if you prefer.

Princess Leia is very quick and easy to make.


  1. Question, can I use these as finger puppets, or make them smaller to use as finger puppets for my kids? Thanks for sharing. They are very cute!

  2. Hi, yes a friend of mine uses them as puppets with her daughter. They are a bit bigger than regular finger puppets (more like 2 or 3 finger puppets).

    If you want to make them smaller, i guess you could take everything down by one - so only make the head 12 stitches round, and knock a couple of rows off as well. If I get a chance I'll have a go and post the results on here.

  3. Hi, I had another thought - and probably an easier one! These cosies are made in double knit on a size 4mm hook, so if you swapped to 4 ply and a 2.5mm or 3mm hook, they would come out smaller, and be a more appropriate size for finger puppets.
