Two Fried Eggs: Tutorial

Fried Egg Nipple Tassels

It’s been a little while since my last post. I apologise. I had a little operation and, to be frank, my mind has been occupied with other things. Anyway, a few weeks back I promised to post a tutorial for these cheeky little beauties – so here it is. These fried egg tassels are really easy to make and perfect to wear whilst serving Sunday morning brunch. I must say though that cooking in them probably constitutes a major fire hazard – Never dangle your nipple tassels over an open flame.

Please note: The tension in the photographed sample is a little loose so that the stitches are nice and clear,  for better results keep your tension nice and tight.

You will need: 1, 3.50mm hook

DK yarn in two colours, white and yellow.

1. With yellow yarn ch3, join with ss to form a ring.

2. Ch2, (1dc, ch1) x 7, join with ss in top of ch2 to form a circle.

3. Ch2, 1dc in ch1 space, ch1, (2dc in ch1 space, ch1 all the way around, ss in top of ch2 to form a circle.

4. Join white, ch2, *1dc in ch, ch1, skip next ch* all the way round, ss in top of ch2 to form a circle. This should make the yolk appear slightly convex. Turn work inside out.

5. Ch2, dc1 in same space, ch1, *2dc in next space, ch1* repeat all the way round, ss in top of ch2 to form a circle.

6. To make the shape less uniform, and more egg-like: (in ch) slip 5, ch2, 3dc, ch2, slip 5, ch2, 5dc, ch2, slip 7, ch2, 5dc, ch2, slip 4 (or to end of round) ss in first slipped st.

7. Ch1, sc all the way round and join with ss to form a circle.

Stitch ends in with a large needle, and attach tassel. A shop bought tassel is perfect if you can find one, or, if you fancy it – you could make your own. Eastbourne is strangely short of burlesque-friendly haberdasheries, so I’ve been forced to make my own. A tutorial for these will follow shortly.

    Laughed till I cried! LOVE these!! You’re amazing! ..now, how does one wear these??? LOL

    • Thanks so much for your lovely comment. I’m glad you like them. I think double-sided tape should work to keep them on, although – confession time – I’ve never actually worn them. Maybe I should, as a test.
