Tweed Teapot Cosy & Egg Cosy - Knitting Pattern for a 4 Cup Teapot Cosy DESCRIPTION: Tea Cosy Measurement Lower circumference – 16in (40½ cm) Height – 6½ in (16½ cm) Egg Cosy Measurement Lower circumference – 7in (18 cm) Height – 2½ in (6½ cm) Method: Worked Flat Wool: UK - DK Wool/ USA - Light Worsted/ Australia - 8ply - WORKED DOUBLED Knitting Needles: Single pointed 4mm & 5mm Additional: Tapestry Needle I have used the ‘Twisted Tweed Knit Stitch’ for this pattern. The pattern is worked in DK wool, using double thread throughout. You can use chunky wool if desired. Using double thread, combined with the texture of the stitch, this makes the cosies thick & padded, which will keep the teapot & egg warm. I wanted to keep the design very simple, but focus more on the texture & contrasting colours. It was also an opportunity to learn a new stitch, which proves very versatile for this design. The stitches used are: K - Knit P - Purl K1B - Knit in the stitch below K2tog - Knit two together I attend a local stitching group each Friday, I designed & knitted up the teapot cosy for a secret santa gift. I used the colours red & purple in the original design. I called the gift - ‘Hannah’s Tea Cosy’.
