Hi there, thanks for checking out my second pattern. :) This cozy is intended to be very simple but snug and warm to keep your tea piping hot to the last cup!

I named it the Candy Cozy because it ended up looking like a bag of sweets shaped like a teapot, especially with the self-striping rainbow yarn I used.

The cozy is knit as two separate halves, which are sewn together to custom fit any teapot. It starts at the bottom with a ribbed stitch for a snug bottom fit, goes up into an easily customisable stockinette stitch and ends with a fun ribbed top and braided cord, leaving room to open the top without taking off the entire cozy.
