Why Didn't Anyone Tell Me?: Sharing the tea cosy love!

Why Didn't Anyone Tell Me?: Sharing the tea cosy love!
Ok, so it started with one tea cosy and now there have been three more! One for a gift, one ordered by a friend and another to pop into my shop. They are just so lovely to make and seeing them sitting together with their different coloured roses makes me smile. I've had quite a few emails asking if I have a pattern for these and until now I'd just made them up as I went along. Here are the things you'll need to get started. To get started, make an initial chain just long enough to go around the base of your pot so it sits just to the sides of your handle. Then Ch2 and work one HDC into the third chain from hook. Work enough rows of HDC (always adding a Ch2 before turning) so that your cosy sits just below the base of your spout. Now place a stitch marker in the centre stitch. If your pot is like mine and has a fairly wide spout I leave a space of 5 stitches to accommodate it. You can now fasten off this section. Continue working in rows until both sides are the same height. Enjoy! Related:  FloralakkasllaartesaniasOthers

May Roses This is my pattern for these adorable May Roses, a sweet little floral decoration for all sorts of prettifying projects. Make them into brooches, attach them to hats, bags, hair slides, cardigans. Assemble a whole bunch of them to prettify a tea cosy, a bag, a cushion. String them together to make a pretty floral garland. Before we begin, a little summary of the basic stitches. sl st [slip stitch] :: insert hook, yarn over, pull the loop back through the stitch, then through the loop on your hook. dc [double crochet] :: insert hook, yarn over, pull the loop back through the stitch (two loops on hook), yarn over and pull through both loops on hook (note :: this is equivalent to the US sc stitch) htr [half treble]:: yarn over, insert hook, yarn over, pull the loop back through the stitch (three loops on hook), yarn over and pull through all three loops on hook (note :: this is equivalent to the US hdc stitch) To begin, chain 26. ....work 5 treble stitches (as above) into the same stitch. 1.

Crochet with Raymond’s Granny Tea Cosy | Cosy Tea Blog Here’s a gorgeous cosy for all you crochet addicts to get stuck into. Granny Tea Cozy from Crochet with Raymond Now if you are a regular reader, you’ll know that primarily we feature knitted tea cosy patterns, however, I can’t help but feel like we’re leaving all our lovely hooker friends out! So today’s cosy comes from the lovely Alice at ‘Crochet with Raymond‘, a blog I discovered recently and have added to my feed. I would suggest having a read if you like spinning, knitting, crochet and cats! This pattern is made in a fairly simple crochet stitch, which is all explained in great detail on the pattern page here. This is a perfect cosy to crochet if you are fairly new to the skill, as Alice’s tutorial is so helpful! Alice has lots of other patterns available on Ravelry, including bunting, booties and a coffee cosy. Like this: Like Loading...

Tutorial Flor Sunkissed I was playing around with this beautiful Sunkissed yarn by Scheepjes and ended up with this.... Posted a photo on my Facebook Page and a lot of people asked me for a pattern/tutorial. I don't know yet what I'm gonna make, but already made a tutorial for all of you! Happy Flower Decoration This is a pattern/tutorial to show you how to make this Happy Flower wall hanging. You can read more about the design and making of the original decoration in this post. I'm using a cotton yarn to make this decoration, it's Rowan Handknit Cotton, a fairly robust DK weight yarn which I work on a 4mm hook. I love using this yarn for decorative projects as although it is soft and lovely to work with, the resulting crochet tends to be quite stiff and holds it's shape well. Plus aren't the colours scrummy?! Before we begin, a little summary of the basic stitches. sl st [slip stitch] :: insert hook, yarn over, pull the loop back through the stitch, then through the loop on your hook. dc [double crochet] :: insert hook, yarn over, pull the loop back through the stitch (two loops on hook), yarn over and pull through both loops on hook (note :: this is equivalent to the US sc stitch) dtr [double treble] :: yarn over TWICE, insert hook, yarn over, pull loop back through stitch (four loops on hook).

Rose Pattern I’m starting to think ahead for some Valentine’s projects and I thought a rose would make a perfect embellishment. I played around and finally came up with a sweet little rose I love. I am thinking of using it to accent a wreath … or maybe even make a whole wreath out of them. We’ll have to see what I come up with. But for now, I am just enjoying making up these roses. Here’s what you need: Small amounts of yarn, I used worsted weight yarn for mineH hook or an appropriate size hook for the yarn weight you chosetapestry needle Click here to reference the Crochet Abbreviations Chart. Special Stitch: Two double crochet cluster (2dc-cl): Yarn over, insert hook into specified stitch, yarn over and pull up loop, yarn over and pull through 2 loops on hook, repeat once more (3 loops will be on hook), yarn over and pull through all 3 loops. Ch 28. Row 1: Work 2 dc in 4th ch from hook, *1 dc in next, 2 dc in next, rep from * across, turn — 39 sts. Fasten off, leaving a tail of about 6 inches.

Odessa’s Three Colourwork Cup Cosies | Cosy Tea Blog While trawling Ravelry this afternoon, I came across these beautiful cup cosies, the free pattern created by Odessa Reichel. My does she have some amazing designs! Odessa has written a really neat guide to knitting from charts on her blog, included in which are these cute free cup cosy patterns. This is a great pattern if you are new to introducing colour into knitting, and knitting from charts – the instructions are really well written. And who couldn’t resist making one of these? Obviously fabulous for keeping tea warm, but if you’re partial to a nice chilled frappe or an iced tea, they can help prevent hand freeze too! On the tea front, this week I’ve been mostly drinking Cosy Organic Earl Grey. What’s in your cup? Like this: Like Loading...

Loani’s Wild Tea Cosy! | Cosy Tea Blog 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. 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! www.grandpurlbaa.com Like this:
