Description

Use the Cocktail Party Tea Cosy Knitting Pattern to knit a tea cosy of your favourite cocktail drink.

Cocktails in jam jars is so old hat, cocktails in mini teapots is where it's at!

The cocktail requires one bamboo needle for construction of the straw and parasol. Bamboo needles are great for construction because they are easy to cut and are cheap to buy, especially if you buy online or at charity shops. One pair of needles will make 2 cocktail tea cosies.

I really love the fruit slice and the parasol, they make the cocktail feel real. The lemon slice could be any of the citrus fruits – lime, orange, pink grapefruit perhaps. The cherry could be an olive, a grape, physalis, a lychee or any small round fruit.

This tea cosy is fantastic for summer days and happy tea parties and the cosies always attract the eye and hearts of party guests.

The Cocktail Party tea cosy fits a small sized teapot that holds 2 cups or 1 pint of tea.

The pattern will be available for digital download as soon as you have completed purchase, so you could start knitting them very soon!

This product is the knitting pattern only to make your own Cocktail Party tea cosies.
