Granny’s Tea Cosy (Small)

Purchase and Download: Granny’s Tea Cosy (Small) on Ravelry

This pattern produces a tea cosy sized to fit a small tea pot (1-pint size). The cosy is knit in the round, from the bottom up, with very subtle shaping and finished with a Kitchener bind off along the top. An optional braided trim provides a decorative loop for hanging. The Fair Isle construction allows for an extra thickness of yarn to keep the tea warm.

A very similar pattern is also available for a standard quart-sized tea pot: Granny’s Fair Isle Tea Cosy (large); additionally, a sister design has been created for a cover for a stand mixer: Granny’s Fair Isle Mixer Cover
