Needlework: Easter Bunny Cozy

Each adorable "cozy" would make a cute table decoration at each placesetting at Easter dinner. The "cozy" fits over a large plastic candy filled Easter egg. Rather than make pompoms, I purchased them from A.C. Moore along with the cellophane bags. I made French knot eyes and embroidered a pink nose on each bunny.  This is a free pattern from Lion Brand .  They offer many other free patterns on this site.
STITCH EXPLANATION: sc2tog (sc decrease) Insert hook into st and draw up a loop. Insert hook into next st and draw up a loop. Yarn over, draw through all 3 loops on hook.
NOTES:Work in continuous rnds; do not join or turn unless otherwise instructed.
COZY
With A, ch 2.
Rnd 1: Work 4 sc in first ch. Place marker in first st for beg of rnd; move marker up as each rnd is completed.
Rnd 2: Work 2 sc in each sc around - 8 sc.
Rnd 3: *2 sc in next st, sc in next st, rep from * around - 12 sc.
Rnd 4: *2 sc in next st, sc in each of next 2 sts, rep from * around - 16 sts.

Rnds 7 -14: Sc in each sc around.
