Tea Cozies 4

Theres nothing quite like sharing a pot of tea with friends. It brightens even the greyest of days. But, as the conversation flows and you reach for that second comforting cuppa, the last thing you want is for your high spirits to be dampened by a tasteless, tepid brew. A tea cozy, therefore, is an essential piece of kit for the kitchen. The wonderful thing about tea cozies is they can be made in a dazzling array of styles and colours. Theres something to suit every personality and every home décor, from minimalist to wildly exuberant. Buy from Amazon here.

  1. Hello,
    I love your Indian Summer Shrug and have been inspired to try to make one of my own. But, alas, here I am in the United States and your instructions suggest Rico Cotton Essentials DK 100% cotton yarn but there is NONE that I can find. Also, there are NO Yarn Alternatives as your Sidebar (in the magazine) offers. I have looked in stores everywhere and there are no colorful ones as you used in your shrug. I am sad to say that all yarns are just so bland here in Michigan. Can you suggest a great website to buy this beautiful Rico yarn from ‘across the pond’?
    Thank you…:)

  2. Hi have a question on your Orla Cloche Hat pattern. In rnd 6 it just says ‘Patteren rnd’ and it comes up again in round 8. I have no idea what that means can you please explain

  3. I have a question concerning round 3, I don’t understand how you end up with 24 spaces. I have ripped it apart and started over 4 times and each time I still end up with only 23 spaces. Do I chain 1 on the last stitch before I slip stitch into the 2nd chain of the chain 3? Please help I love this hat and I am hoping to have it completed by December 17th?

    Thanks so much,
