With a single strand of black yarn and I hook and to mimic the illustration lines as shown in the book, surface crochet lines as shown on this image. I keep the working yarn on the underside of the work and loosely slip stitch bringing the yarn through the piece and to the top side as I work. (see this video by Repeat Crafter Me here to learn that: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HmXuTlnnzMQ )

Weave in all ends to this point.

Using hot glue or tail end of yolk sew to center of egg base.

Using hot glue or tail end of egg, sew that to the platter using the photo as a guide.

Ham:

With single strand white and E hook, make magic ring, ch 1:

Do not turn or join unless instructed.

Rnd 1: 6 sc in ring, sl st to FRONT LOOP ONLY of 1st sc made, cut yarn. (6)

DO NOT CUT YARN, BUT DROP GREEN for a moment.

Black Lines:

Join a single strand of black in the remaining front loop from round 6, loosely sl st in each front loop around, sl st to 1st st made, cut yarn.

Using the same technique as on the platter, slip stitch 3 lines on the front face of the ham around the bone. I did not weave in any of these ends. Instead I pulled them to the back of the piece and tucked them inside as the piece was made.

Rnd 7: pick back up the green yarn and sc in each st around. (36)

Rnd 8: (sc in nxt 4 sts, sc dec over nxt 2 sts) six times total (30)

STUFF HAM.

Rnd 16: (sc dec over the nxt 2 BACK LOOPS ONLY) six times, sl st to 1st st made, cut yarn, use tail to sew any rem hole closed.

Rnd 17: join a single strand of black in the rem front loops from round 16, ch 1, sl st loosely in each rem loop around, sl st to 1st st made, cut yarn.

You can sew a few lines around the ham with black yarn and needle as desired using photo as a guide.

Weave in any remaining ends. Sew or hot glue the ham to the platter between the lines your surface crocheted onto it.

Fork(Make 2):

1: With single strand of black and E hook, ch 8, working in the hump on the back of the ch throughout the piece, sl st in the 1st ch from the hook and nxt 7 chs, ch 5, sl st in 1st ch from hook and nxt 4 chs, sl st in the last ch again in the beg ch-8, ch 4, sl st in the 1st ch from hook and nxt 3 chs, sl st again in the last ch of the beg ch-8, ch 5, sl st in the 1st ch from the hook and nxt 4 chs, sl st in the last ch of the beg ch-8 and cut yarn.

On one half of the fork, using white yarn and needle, stitch accent marks along the length using the photo as a guide. Weave in ends on both halves. Match the 2nd fork to the 1st fork and either hot glue (recommended adds stability so it stands up) or sew the halfs together wrong side of the sewn half facing in. Using black yarn and needle, or again the hot glue, stitch the fork to the ham at the tip of each fork tine.

Headband:

With green yarn single strand and H hook, chain 55:

Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook and each rem ch across. (54)

Row 2-5: ch 1, turn, sc in each st across. Cut yarn after row 5 leaving 30” tail to sew to headband.

Using the tail and keeping the seam on the underside of the headband, whip stitch the 1st and last row together to cover the headband.

If your headband is wider or longer, add a few stitches or a row as needed to cover without stretching too tightly.

Place on head and pin the platter offset in position using the photo as a guide. Sew or hot glue the platter into place.
