Solstice Glow Tea Cosy

On Sale
Added to cart
Either with the glow of summer or of winter, enjoy this Solstice as our Earth seems to pause at the extreme of its orbit.

This is a pattern for a teapot cosy. This cosy has 2 layers each worked separately from a provisional cast-on and using the stranded knitting technique. One layer has farm animal patterning and the other a simpler small motif patterning of your choosing.

Stitches are provisionally cast on and one layer is worked. Then cast-on sts are replaced to needles and the other layer is worked. One is pushed inside the other and secured at the top. A simple i-cord handle is attached.

You may add Duplicate Stitch and/or embroidered details.
