Happy Friday folks! This week our featured free tea cosy pattern is the awesome Garden Party Tea Cosy, designed by Loani Prior, author of Wild Tea Cosies and REALLY Wild Tea Cosies .
Loani has kindly let us use her fancy tea cosy pattern this week for Tea Cosy Corner.
I am LOVING this cosy! It’s so dull and grey here in Bristol this week, this would look great in our office to cheer things up a bit.
The cosy is knitted on 4mm (US 6) knitting needles and uses Noro Kureyon or Noro Silk Garden yarn. If you’ve never used Noro wool before then you’re missing out!
We’re looking forward to getting out teeth into this pretty teacosy pattern as it looks like so much fun – After making the body of the cosy in a basket weave stitch, which uses a mixture of knit and purl in rounds and rows, you make a little tray to put your knitted garden in, and then use a combination of knitting and crochet to make all the leaves and flowers.
We think it looks fab, and can’t wait to get hold of Loani Prior’s books to see all the other patterns!
You can download the PDF version of Garden Party for free on Loani’s website – take a look around, check out her other tea cosies and buy her books!
