Snowman Tea Cozies 3 Sizes, knitting pattern
This cute knitting pattern for a set of 3 Snowman Tea Cozies is sure to add some festive fun to your table or dresser this Christmas. There are three sizes which can be adapted to fit most teapots. Each cozy is worked flat and seamed. The optional stick arms are worked flat, no seams. The arm/mittens option are worked in the round using Judy’s Magic Cast On to start.
Each cozy has a little knitted beanie with either a pompom, tassel or bell. It’s really up to you.
Sizes of Teapots Used:
Measurement A - horizontally across the front of the pot, from inside the handle to the start of the spout around the belly of the pot only (excludes handle and spout).
Measurement B – Vertically from the centre front base of the pot to the rim at the top of the pot and not including the height of the lid as this will vary from one style to another.
Small 2 cup teapot – A = 5in/22.5cm, B = 3.75in/9.5cm
Standard 4 cup teapot – A = 9in/23cm, B = 5.5in/13.5 cm
Large 2 ½ pint teapot – A = 11.5in/29cm, B = 5.5in/13.5 cm
Note on sizes for the Large Cozy, you could sew the side seams closed and use this on a standard 4 cup pot to lift on and off without spout/handle holes.
I used a Denby Wheatsheaf 2 cup pot for the small, a Brown Betty 4-6 cup pot for the medium and a Portmeirion 2 1/2 pint pot for the large.
I used Stylecraft Special Chunky or any chunky yarn would be fine. I used Schoeller Filzi in Cream instead of white, Rav says it’s super bulky - it knits as bulky/chunky weight year on 6mm or 6.5mm needles. Again you could sub for Special Chunky or use two strands of Stylecraft Special Double Knit.
The scarf used a few yards of Noro Kogarashi or any chunky yarn, same for the hat.
I used some scraps, a few yards, of Sirdar Softspun Chunky in dark green for the Snowman’s arms.
I easily made a medium cozy in about 4 hours, then knitted the arms, hat and scarf.
