Anyone for Christmas Pudding?

Are you feeling festive yet? Christmas is getting close, but there’s still time to make a few things! Top of our list is this funky little Christmas Pud Tea Cosy, designed by Hilary Detmers from Suffolk, UK.

Christmas Pudding Knitted Tea_Cosy

This free pattern is well written and very easy to follow.  The body of the tea cosy is ribbed on two needles, the icing crocheted, and the knitted holly and berries added to finish.  Hilary has included crochet abbreviations for both British and American teminology, and has explained how to sew up the tea cosy, using useful photographs.

Hilary has more free PDF patterns on her Ravelry and on Hilary’s Craft Blog – a nice mixture of crochet, hand knit and machine knitting, all again with clear instructions on how to make them.

I’m pretty new to machine knitting, however I might have to give her Crocodile Scarf or her Underhosen a go!

Cute Christmas Cosies to Knit!

We said we would feature some free Christmas tea cosies for you to get your teeth into, so here is the first one 🙂  This festive ribbed tea cosy was designed by Frankie Brown (thanks Frankie for the submission!).

Double Sided Christmas Tree and Snowman Tea Cosy

The tea cosy is made in rib stitch and the snowman and christmas tree designs are knitted and sewn on afterwards.  Instructions are clearly written out to knit each part, the snowman himself, his hat and scarf, the snowballs and the christmas tree, which is then decorated.

We featured Frankie recently when we found one of her free knitting patterns online.  She asks that if you do make one of her patterns that you leave a donation on her Just Giving Page.  For more festive Christmas knits, garlands, blankets and toys, see her Ravelry.
