A tea cosy or two…
Hello there folks! First blog post, here goes: today’s topic – tea cosies.
After having spotted the cutest tea cosy pattern on Emma Varnam‘s site I had to make one for my friend for her birthday. However, upon embarking on the project I fell a little too in love with it; after reluctantly parting with the finished product, I decided I simply couldn’t live another week without having one of my very own.
…Finally, the finishing touches have been made – et voilà! My teapot shall never be alone again. As I like to experiment a little (and give things a unique ‘Holly’ touch) it may not look quite like Emma’s, but I am proud of the finished piece. As someone who is relatively new to the crochet scene, I found the pattern easy to follow (even if I did find myself counting stitches over and over again, just to be sure!). The only thing I had to learn new was how to make a ‘magic ring’, so for anyone else who would like to learn for the sake of this project – here’s a little tutorial.
