This is a vintage style tea cosy knitting pattern just like Grandma used. I updated the pattern. This is an easy quick knit that can be completed in a day or two evenings. This tea cosy looks so lovely and welcoming for that early morning brew. This tea cosies is a lot of fun to make...very addictive knitting! Great for gifts! And that perfect pattern to get you in the knitting mood again...
The knitting stitch design of this tea cosy makes for a really good insulation and really does keep the tea pot hot for that next brew :-) All will be explained in the pattern with photos and directions to create the "fluted" stitch.
This listing is for an instant download of the pattern.
A Any Worsted Weight or Double Knitting or left over yarn
B Any Worsted Weight or Double Knitting or left over yarn
This cozy can be knitted out of left over strands of yarn for a mulitcoloured cosy. Or one colour tea cosy. Or possibly knit one colour across all stitches then switch to another. You can also knit in a checkered pattern. The options are endless use up left over yarn or use luxury yarn. I like to use the machine washable yarn, cotton, wool or acrylic, and darker colours because the cosy will get tea stains, and you can throw it in the wash, unless it is just for decoration then use that best yarn in your stash you have been saving...
1 pair 4.5 mm (US 7) needles

Each item is hand made, and may vary from the pictures listed, only because each item is created from scratch and sewn individually.

For instance, buttons, loops, pockets, lining shades, fabric placement etc.

You may receive your bag a little crumpled in the shipping process. Please revive your item by using a steam iron and steaming it back into shape.
CARE OF YOUR ITEM
I do not recommend washing or spot cleaning as some fabric dyes may bleed, or shrink. Some of the items I create I use interfacing, I find that washing takes away the stiffness of the item. I suggest professionally dry cleaning your hand made treasure. Hand or machine wash at your own risk.
