I’ve been on the look out this week for recently published tea cosy’s to share, and I came across this adorable one from Suzyn Jackson Gonzalez.
Suzyn explains that this cosy was based on a shirt that Sherlock Holmes wears in the BBC series. I just totally love a tea pot in a button up cardigan!
The tea cosy is actually knit in the round and the buttons are non functional. Suzyn has written the pattern out in full and has included a chart for the coded number on the back, and for the collar shaping. It’s a very well written and thought out pattern, and looks like a lot of fun to make!
Suzyn lives in Washington and learned to knit from Episcopalian nuns at school. She has two books published – Knit it Together and Going Home Married. You can find a link on her website to the free pattern for this lovely tea cosy, and find her other patterns on her Ravelry page 🙂
On the tea front, this week I am mainly drinking Cosy Earl Grey – Fairtrade Organic Black Tea with Bergamot. It’s delicous, refreshing, fantastic with a slice of lemon and absolutely perfect for those muggy days we seem to be having a lot of at the moment.
Currently our tea is only available online and in cafes – but we are looking to start stocking deli’s, health food shops and knitting shops! If you would like to stock Cosy Tea or buy it from a shop near you, then please use the comment form below or send us an email with the name and address of the place where you would like to purchase from.
