“Keeps your hot tea hot!”
This little tea cozy—a free pattern—does the very important job of keeping your tea at the optimum temperature. And looks adorable doing it! Our Seed-Stitch Tea Cozy is definitely doable in an evening or two and is topped with a poofy pompom!

We knit this cute cozy in worsted-weight Rowan Kid Classic, a favorite of ours for nearly ever. Kid Classic’s lambswool offers loft and resilience, while the mohair—not brushed ‘fluffy’ like many mohair yarns—adds luster, depth of color and tonal complexity. It’s an excellent choice to keep your teapot well insulated!

Approx. 16”/40cm around x 6 1/2”/16.5cm tall.
Fits most standard 2-cup teapots, like our Smith Teapot and Brown Betty.

1 skein Rowan Kid Classic (153 yds/140m each).
Or approx 100 yds/91m of an equivalent worsted-weight yarn.
Optional - a small amount of matching or contrasting yarn for pompom.
You’ll have enough yarn left to make a pom-pom in the body color if you wish.
Shown in color 898, Nude with a contrasting pom-pom from stash yarn.

US 5 (3.75mm) needles, or size to obtain gauge.
1 stitch holder or spare double-point needle.
Darning needle to finish.
Optional - 1 5/8”/45mm Pom-pom maker; strong yarn or string to attach pom-poms.

Approx. 20 sts = 4”/10cm in seed stitch.
