Spring Time Tea Cosy

15 Feb

Ok, I know it’s not quite Spring yet, but I thought I’d welcome it early!

Anyone that knows me, knows that I love a good old cup of tea. I come from a tea chain drinking family; your cup barely touches the coaster before another is made! For this reason I brought myself a lovely spotty, red teapot a while ago and I have been dying to make it a cosy but other crafty projects just kept on getting in the way! I have recently started attending a knitting group on a Tuesday night held at ‘Like a Teatray in the Sky‘ (which my work is now stocked in too! Yays!)which was the perfect time to get cracking on a cosy.

I chose a VERY simple pattern of K2 P2 ribbing stitch and created two identical sides which then drawstring at the top, then you simple sew up the edges leaving gaps for the spout and handle. Voilà!

The giant flowers I crocheted and sewed on top. I love it! So bright and colourful, just in time to say goodbye to long dark nights and hello to spring sunshine, daffodils and cute baby animals!
