VERY CUTE!!!!!!!!! I LIKE the little Egg cozy too! I’ve ALWAYS LOVED poached eggs & only recently started having medium boiled eggs in an egg cup instead! I LOVE them! I’ve read it’s how people in Europe have their eggs! I’m the ONLY ONE in my family that will eat eggs this way! :) That’s ok! I THINK I’ll have to make myself some Egg Cozies! I started with looking for Tea Cozy Patterns! I’ll just make them MATCHING like you! :)Thanks for showing us! :)

In the Inside Crochet September magazine it says there is a free pattern for a pumpkin on this site. I have looked several times since I bought it in August but can’t find it. Hoping it may be here in October which would make sense for Halloween! Anyone else been looking for it?

Hi Emma,

I have just started to make this cosy as a christmas git for a friend. I have so far knit 10 rows but I can’t help thinking that it looks enormous! I am aware it’s for a 6-8 cup pot, yet my 116 stitches just seem to go on forever! Has anyone else mentioned this?

Dear Michelle, I would make sure that your tension and the needle size matches – you might have a looser tension than me. It is a gathered teacosy at the top and the rib nature of the pattern will mean that it should be stretchy. If you are worried. Try going down a size in needles. Hope this helps – thanks

I’m trying to start this tea cosy, but I can’t make the pattern look like the one in the picture. To me it looks like rib knitting – like k1,p1 – but that’s not what it says in the description? (knit 1 into st below, p2)
Can u help me, please? What am I not getting?

Hello Birgitte, Thank you for your comment.
Here is a link to a really useful you tube video which helps you to work this stitch.
