Introducing my Beehive Tea Cosy knitting pattern, using a simple combination of knits and purls to create texture. It is knitted flat in two pieces and sewn together so you can ensure a fit around your teapot’s handle and spout.


  • The cosy is to fit a standard 6 cup teapot.
  • The pattern is 2 pages and written in English.
  • The cosy is knitted flat (back and forth) on a pair of straight single-pointed knitting needles, and the top loop is i-cord worked on two DPNs.
  • You will also need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work a k2tog decrease to shape the top, and sew seams.


  • A pair of straight 4 mm (US 6) single-pointed knitting needles
  • Two 4 mm (US 6) DPNs
  • Double knitting yarn (DK or light worsted weight)
  • Bee shaped buttons to decorate
