How to: Hot Bead Egg

Materials List:

  • Hook: TMC 2488H #14
  • Thread: 140 fire orange
  • Bead: 1/8 hot orange
  • Over Body: Mcflyfoam apricot


Very similar to the unreal egg, the hot bead egg uses an orange brass bead for added weight. The bright color will show through the yarn when it is wet. Sometimes all you need is a bead for weight. I tie two versions, one with an orange hot bead and another with a pink hot bead.
