    About

    This is a truly striking tea cosy. It is a bright mix of Summer colours. A giant pom pom tops the ribbed dome and this is surrounded by pretty bell flowers attached to “I” cord stalks. The sides are embellished with bobbles in two shades of pink, and a variety of stripes and ribbed sections make this a really interesting cosy to knit. Surprisingly this cosy is knitted in one piece from the top down and then splits onto straight needles to work the sides. Once these have been completed everything is joined back together to work the bottom section. Is your mind in a whirl? Never mind. Just take it a step at a time and it will all work out just beautifully and you will end up with a tea cosy which makes you smile every time you look at it.
