Cocktail Party Tea Cosy
With the Cocktail Party Tea Cosy Knitting Pattern you can knit yourself a Pina-Colada-tini, a Pomegranate Margarita and a Cosmopolitan Cocktail tea cosy. It's an unusual way to serve cocktails at a cocktail party or to funk up a tea party and to make it look like a cocktail party.
The main part of the cosy is knitted in a loose cable pattern to make the main part of the cosy look like cut glass.
The cocktail requires one bamboo needle for construction of the straw and parasol. Bamboo needles are great for construction because they are easy to cut and are cheap to buy, especially if you buy online or at charity shops. One pair of needles will make 2 cocktail tea cosies.
I really love the fruit slice and the parasol, they make the cocktail feel real. The lemon slice could be any of the citrus fruits – lime, orange, pink grapefruit perhaps. The cherry could be an olive, a grape, physalis, a lychee or any small round fruit.
