February is the month of love, and if your Valentine likes tea, making them this cosy is a great way to say “I love you”!
Designed by Claire Garland from her cottage by the sea in Penzance, this tea cosy pattern is a quick and easy one knit up in less than a day. Claire is the founder of Dot Pebbles – a collection of cute knitted dolls and outfits which you make yourself. She also makes knitted toys and creatures, and has a few books available full of knitting patterns, including Knitted Babes, Knit and Purl Pets, and Toys to Sew, which can be found on her website.
This Valentine tea cosy was knitted with Debbie Bliss Donegal Luxury Tweed Chunky and is worked on 5mm (US8) double pointed needles, with the cup cake and hearts knitted afterwards and sewn on top.
