Cozy Corner Teapot Sweater by LynnHThis tea cosy is lovely to look at, and a quick knit. It uses heavy worsted-weight yarn, and a simple but lovely textured rib with just a few rows of lace ruffle at the top. It comes in two sizes, which accommodates most any teapot you might own.
This is a great project for those who love teapots, who want to dabble in lace without a big challenge, or those looking for a quick gift. I can usually finish one in a few days of casual knitting.
It is also a painless way to learn about knitting in the round, something like a circularly-knit sweater. You first work in the round, then you "split for the armholes" and later re-join. Instructions are given for either double-pointed needles or one long circular needle, your choice.
You will need one 4oz skein of yarn. I chose Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride worsted, which comes in a rainbow of colors, has a great texture, and is very affordable. You will not need the whole 4oz. The cosy can be knit on circular needles or double pointed needles, whichever you prefer.
If you prefer to take a class (and are near Mid-Michigan), check my Schedule page to see when and where this class is offered next.
Printed pattern in page protector, $6 USD plus $1 shipping in the USA.
