This retro looking tea cosy is knit flat and then sewn together with gaps for your teapots handle and spout. It measures 8” high and is 21” in diameter, which should fit most of the larger 8cup teapots.

A fairly quick knit, it will make a perfect gift for your tea loving friends, family and co-workers. The basket weave stitch looks lovely and slightly complex, but it really easy, perfect for wowing non-knitters.

This is my first proper pattern that I’ve put up on the internet, so if you have any feedback at all, both positive and negative, then feel free to send me a wee message.
