Everyone needs a tea cozy! This tea cozy is for adorable, squat teapots which may be found at World Tea House in Halifax, Nova Scotia (though I am sure they exist elsewhere in the world as well). And it’s reversible! One side is a sweet little uneven basketweave, while the other side is tucked and folded and reminds me of the tiles on pagoda roofs. The bottom is secured with a knitted tea leaf and a loop, the middle is held on with a button, and the top is knit in the round.
To knit this tea cozy, you will need: 1 skein Illimani Baby Llama, or any other worsted weight yarn 3 mm dpns (between size 2 and 3 US) 4 mm circular needles with a 40 cm/16 inch cable (size 6 US) 3.5 mm dpns (size 4 US) crochet hook 2 flat buttons 4 stitch markers tapestry needle to weave in ends and sew on buttons
