Desert Island Tea Cosy
A quirky tea cosy for those with good imagination. On a cold winter’s day, dream of a desert island to escape to. And, if you like, add a few accessories: chocolate, a bottle of something nice, a good book . . . – then sit back and watch the friendly dolphins!
The cosy is knitted flat, with double thickness 8 ply / DK yarn, in an easy stitch that mimics waves. The optional extras are in single yarn with smaller needles. Detailed instructions with photos.
