Eggs Over Easy

Here’s another example of an existing pattern turned into another pattern with some slight MADifications.  While looking at the melted snowman pattern, Wendy Austin-Rawlings read my mind that it could easily be turned into an egg pattern.  So I enlisted her help in testing it out. Wendy was kind enough to do a version in both thread and in yarn so we could see it in two sizes.  I removed a round from the melting snowman head and changed the color of yarn for that portion to yellow.  Then, she took notes of exactly what she did in the round where I indicated to freeform.  So now you can get the same results as she did!  She also added a few stitches to keep it from curling.  All the instructions are included in the pattern below.
