Transform your tea pot with this sugar skull inspired pattern to celebrate the Day of the Dead.

This pattern is worked from the top down and is designed to fit a 4 - 6 cup globe shaped tea pot, with opportunities to fit the cozy as you go. A button closure has been included to make it easy to fit on to your hot pot and 3D roses can be added for extra effect.

Charts are included for both a cream and black background. Working the charts requires good knowledge of colourwork techniques. Floating multiple strands at once as well as duplicate stitch are both required.
