Anyone for Christmas Pudding?

Are you feeling festive yet? Christmas is getting close, but there’s still time to make a few things! Top of our list is this funky little Christmas Pud Tea Cosy, designed by Hilary Detmers from Suffolk, UK.

Christmas Pudding Knitted Tea_Cosy

This free pattern is well written and very easy to follow.  The body of the tea cosy is ribbed on two needles, the icing crocheted, and the knitted holly and berries added to finish.  Hilary has included crochet abbreviations for both British and American teminology, and has explained how to sew up the tea cosy, using useful photographs.

Hilary has more free PDF patterns on her Ravelry and on Hilary’s Craft Blog – a nice mixture of crochet, hand knit and machine knitting, all again with clear instructions on how to make them.

I’m pretty new to machine knitting, however I might have to give her Crocodile Scarf or her Underhosen a go!

  1. Please can you confirm if this is for a small or large teapot? Mines only a 2 cup!
