    What a great way to have a cuppa, with or without friends! A cute owl, sits on a leafy branch, under a crescent moon and starry sky. A fun knit, with lots of daisy stitch and straight stitch embroidery - the end result is like a work of art! A wonderful, central table decoration, that will have your friends complimenting your skills.

    The pattern is intermediate - basic knitting skills needed plus - Intarsia, a little Fairisle, simple cabling, duplicate stitch, and simple embroidery – there is a step by step guide with photos to help with assembling the tea cosy. Instructions are in English, written and charted, with British/American terms.
