Knit a tea cosy!

Lately, I've been obsessed with knitting tea cosies! Ok, so I've only knitted two of them so far, but I'm intending on knitting more - as a 'change' from the others, and as gifts for people.

I found the pattern on Ravelry, I'd seen some other similar ones, but the pattern completely confused me. I still get confused by them, but I'm tackling them one at a time! It's extremely rewarding once you get the hang of something. This pattern requires a lot of crossing over at the back, which helps with the pleating, but also creates an incredibly warm almost double knitted cosy.

Pattern can be found here
Be sure to let me know if you decide to knit one!



  1. This looks fab. If only I could knit... my Nan tried to teach me for years, with no luck. Sigh!

    1. Aww thank you!
      Sometimes it's just something you've got to keep at it! Having said that, I can't get the hang of crochet! I've tried many times and I just give up...
      x x x

  2. Ah such a cute idea! And this would make a lovely gift for my fellow tea drinking friends!

  3. I have knitted that tea cozy pattern!!! It's really nice
    to knit and when my friends saw them, they needed some too.
    Awesome pattern indeed.
    Cheers, Anita.


I love reading all your comments, they make my day!
