DID YOU KNOW?
Some beginner knitting patterns are fun and functional and these adorable egg cozies are no exception. You've most likely seen egg cozies before, but have you ever wondered why they're used? Besides looking cute, egg cozies are meant to keep a soft boiled egg warm - without allowing it to overcook. Cozies also make the presentation of the egg more pleasing to the eye and they prevent the egg from rolling around on the tray and/or plate. Plus, if you place your egg in a knit cozy, you won't need to worry about eating your breakfast with your fingers.
Historians believe egg cozies came into fashion before World War 2. Since many Europeans enjoy soft boiled eggs as part of their morning meal, they are still widely used throughout Europe.
