About The Design:
This revised pattern has spout and handle openings for a cozy which can remain on the teapot, whilst pouring. Adding openings also allowed for the addition of a 3-cup teapot size. The original unspouted pattern is also included – your choice!

This is a good advanced beginner project, as, although the fabric has knit and purl sections, the entire piece is worked in Stockinette, made possible by wrapping the first stitch of the new section, then turning the work, to continue in Stockinette.
Honey bee buttons embellish the cozies.
