Crochet Flower Egg Holders - free pattern

Every year I love to create something unique for Easter - crochet-wise, and cozies being ones my heart is fast attached to, I designed these flower holders that are easy and so fun to make.

1. Sport yarn and a 1.9mm/2mm hook 
2. Tapestry needle for weaving in ends 

Stitches (American terminology): chain (ch), slip stitch (sl st), skip (sk), half double crochet (hdc), double crochet (dc), picot.

Foundation and round 1: ch6 and join to make a ring. Sc12 in ring (12).
Round 2: ch2, sk1, sk1 in next st. (6 chains) Sl st in first chain.
Round 3: in first chain-space, ch3 (counts as the 1st dc) then dc3 (all in the same chain - there should be 4 dcs). Dc4 in next chain. Repeat this pattern for all chains. Sl st with 1st dc at the beginning to finish round.
Round 4: ch3, sk1, sc1 in next stitch. Repeat this pattern around (12 chains)
Round 5: in first chain sc1,dc3,sc1 (later I will refer to this as a "fan"). In second chain hdc1. Repeat this pattern around. sl st into very first chain to end round.
Round 6: ch4 and hdc1 on the top of the "fan". ch 4 and hdc1 on the hdc st from the round below. Repeat this pattern around. Sl st into 1st ch to end round. (12 chains again)
Round 7: sc3 in all chains. We created little "fans" again.
Round 8: ch5, sk 2 fans, sc in next st. Repeat this pattern around (6 chains). Do not sl st in 1st ch.
Round 9: Ch 4 to make a picot and sc in next chain. Make another 4-ch picot and sc in the same chain. Repeat the pattern from the beginning until all chains are picotted. Sl st, pull tail and weave it. 

I hope you enjoy working on your flower cozies.
I wanted to add a video of myself making these, but couldn't find the thing that is attached on the camera to hold it on the tripod, although I turned the house upside-down, so I guess I will have to buy that thing. 

On that note, would you be interested in seeing the video about this pattern?

This pattern comes as a gift pattern with all my Easter Egg Cozies patterns on Etsy

Easter eggs look always look prettier with your cosies. Thank you for sharing this pattern with us! Although I usually prefer charts or written instructions, I would love to see the video tutorial as well. :-)
