|Basket Ribbed Tea Cosy|
I have used the 'Basket Ribbed Knit Stitch' for this pattern. The pattern is worked in DK wool, using double thread throughout. You can use chunky wool if desired.
Using double thread, combined with the texture of the stitch, this makes the cosies thick & padded, which will keep the teapot warm.
I wanted to keep the design very simple, but focus more on the texture & contrasting colours. It was also an opportunity to learn a new stitch, which proves very versatile for this design.
|Red & purple were used throughout|
|The texture of the work makes the cosy thick & warm|
|The tie is very simple to make|
|Stitches used: Knit, Purl & Slip Stitch|
