A very similar pattern is also available for a standard quart-sized tea pot: Granny’s Fair Isle Tea Cosy (large); additionally, a sister design has been created for a cover for a stand mixer: Granny’s Fair Isle Mixer Cover

This pattern produces a tea cosy sized to fit a small tea pot (1-pint size). The cosy is knit in the round, from the bottom up, with very subtle shaping and finished with a Kitchener bind off along the top. An optional braided trim provides a decorative loop for hanging. The Fair Isle construction allows for an extra thickness of yarn to keep the tea warm.

Three colors of wool yarn are used in this pattern:

MC: 35g/70 yds
CC1: 25g/50 yds
CC2: 5 g/10 yds (only 3 rounds)

(Amounts listed are ample to allow for differing habits with color changes, cast-ons, bind-offs, etc.)

A tapestry needle is needed for the Kitchener Bind Off.

To accommodate taller tea pots, extra single color rows could be added next to rows 10 and 24.
