I haven't seen any. Have you done a Google search for them? Maybe you can create the first one. When you do come back and show us what you did.

Happy Beading!!

I've made a ton of christmas tree ornaments in this fashion this year for the first time. I did the first one based on Jamie Cloud Eakin's tutorial, then after that, I went free form and just made up my own patterns:

Jamies pattern: http://www.studiojamie.com/images/Haul_out_the_Holly_ornament_alternate_scheme.pdf

There should be no reason these wouldn't work for eggs, the netting is flexible and the center strip is adjustable. You'd just need to kind of rework the pattern.

Here's a set I did this year. The two based on Jamie's pattern are on the far left... you can see I decided I liked the smaller balls better than the large ones, so I adjusted the pattern to fit the smaller.

If you're looking at covering the whole egg, you could do something like I did with the third one from the right, all I did was flip the ball over and repeated the pattern on the top. It took some time to figure out, and I had to take out a few stitches here and there, but it does work. :)

Good luck!

Sorry to plug the competition, but there are several patterns from old issues of Bead & Button that you can buy from their site:  http://www.beadandbutton.com/project-search.aspx?type=&technique=&style=&level=&issue=&access=sale&keywords=egg

I've made a couple of these in years past and they turn out really well.  You can buy wooden or foam egg forms at most craft stores.

Wow, she has quite a lot of egg kits.  The "spring floral" ones are really cute but they're all pretty.
