Hello and happy Friday – again! This week I would like to share with everyone a slightly different tea cosy knitting pattern- for an Avanti teapot, which is longer and less spherical than most teapots.
This pretty tea cosy was designed by Kristy Harrison in Australia, and the pattern is available for free 🙂 Kristy has gone for a country feel with this tea cosy, using a chunky yarn and tweedy flowers and leaves to finish off.
To make the tea cosy, you will need approx 60g of 12 ply yarn and some small amounts of tweed in contrasting colours for the embellishments. The gauge is 16.5/10cm in stocking stitch on 6mm knitting needles.
This Avanti tea cosy is knitted in a simple cable stitch, and it can be completed within a few hours in this chunky yarn. The cables add thickness to the cosy, making it super warm!
This pattern can be found on Kristy’s website, along with some more lovely free knitting patterns for hot water bottle covers and a hat !
