Ruth’s Cabled Cafetiere and Tea Cosy

Ruth Churchman‘s idea is that “If you can knit rib, you can knit cables”. So true! She designed this free matching cafetiere and tea cosy set specifically for a cable knitting workshop she was teaching. Ruth’s accompanying post goes into detail to explain to those of you new to the technique how simple it really is, providing useful photo tutorials to help you along.

Both cosies are made up of 4 stitch cables and are created in Aran weight yarn. They are knitted flat and are both suitable for new knitters or knitters wishing to improve their skillset beyond just knit and purl stitches. Ruth also goes on to explain how to use a chart, which will help greatly with charts and other patterned designs in the future.

Ruth lives in a cottage in Scotland and confesses to knitting too much. You can read her blog here, where you will also find her knitting pattern for a really cute pair of fingerless mitts!

This week I have been drinking a lot of Cosy Organic Breakfast Tea. Our trusty morning black tea just got 10 times smoother – crisp and refreshing and it’s a great start to the day. Have cake? Even better!
