So here are the final two designs of mine from Teacozies 4. Firstly the Caravan Teacosy is a reworked version of one of my favourite patterns. I return to this design frequently when I want to make a cosy to fit in with other people’s colour schemes. The original was inspired by the wrapping on Tunnock teacakes. As my friend Mrs J pointed I should have called it Tunnock Teacosy or Teacake Teacosy – but that logic seemed to escape me.

I still love this design. It reminds me of Mrs J – a proper tea drinker.

Secondly I designed this cosy which is really an exercise in cross stitch because double crochet stitch is a fabulous base for cross stitch design. If you are a fan of embroidery, but can’t crochet you could always join forces with a crocheting friend to whip-up this design.

So there you go – lots of designs to wet your appetite. Hope you like them x
