Get the pattern PDF files [here] and [here]. There are four egg patterns all together, in two PDFs. All the designs do include specialty stitches, but the pattern files include some instruction to help you along with them.

quick tip: While they are shown as Easter ornaments, these are basically just tiny band samplers. You can easily change things up in the finishing if you don’t want to have them as egg-shaped ornaments. You could make square ornaments instead, of course. You could also do up some tiny flat-folds, hanging sachets, needlebooks, bell pulls, or just about anything else with these delightful little patterns.

The pattern is charted with Kreinik’s Silk Mori and Hi Lustre threads in mind, but of course you can use whatever you have in your stash. Though, I will say that I really do love the Silk Mori line, they’re wonderful to stitch with and a reasonably affordable silk thread.
