Pattern: 1937 Floral Tea Cosy
Yarn: Cosy body: Dream in Colour Smooshy, knit double. Flowers: Kidsilk Haze
Notes: I had a problem getting the stitch pattern to look right, so in the end I substituted 1×1 ribbing, with the yarn held double. The result is stretchy and thick, perfect for keeping the tea good and hot!
For the flowers, I followed Mimi Allesis’s Little Flowers pattern, although I omitted the leaves. I sewed the flowers onto the cosy with little silver beads. Because, you know, you can’t overdo it when you’re going for kitsch…
So, anyone free for afternoon tea? There’ll be Battenburg!
