FO Friday: Tea Cosy take 2

FO Friday: Tea Cosy take 2

Pattern: The imaginatively named “Tea Cosy” by Lily/Yarnspirations.

Yarn and needles: Worsted-weight cotton. 50 g of Peaches & Creme (blue) and 26 g of Sugar ā€˜nā€™ Cream (blue ombre). 5 mm straight bamboo needles.

Dates: 14th – 19th April 2015

Notes/mods:

  • Knew/thought I wouldn’t have enough of the solid to make this so added the ombre Sugar ‘n’ Cream yarn.
  • 2 row stripes, with colour changing on the WS.
  • Due to a user-error, I made the top in one colour, but I rather like it.
  • It’s a little roomy on my tea pot, but that does make it easier to take on and off!
  • Really quick knit and could have been made in a day or two but this yarn hurts my hands so I spaced the knitting out over several days.

And one more for the road!

Notes/mods:

  • Only used 1 CC, instead of 2.
  • Worsted-weight cotton instead of DK simply because that’s what I had to hand.
  • Accidental modification of crossing the cables the opposite way. It’s now a design feature.
  • Another accidental mod of leaving off the stripes around the v-neck collar.
  • I’m going to be honest and say that it’s really difficult to get this on my teapot. I don’t know if it’s because of the yarn I used, but it’s really tricky. And it’s not easy to get the lid on, once the cosy is on the teapot.
  • However, it is super cute and I hope it will keep my tea warmer for longer!
