Keeping cosy

For years now I have been meaning to crochet a tea cosy but have never got around to it…until now!

I’m not sure why I never made one before but needs must and on Saturday evening I sat down and found this excellent pattern  from Crochet with Raymond. It’s perfect for stash busting and so quick that one movie later I had a finished cosy.

If you are looking for a simple, adaptable pattern I can’t recommend this enough. I used worsted weight yarn with a 4.5mm hook and started with a chain of 60ish. I just made the chain, checked that it fitted around the tea pot under the handle and spout and followed the pattern from there, omitting the part around the top. 

I love making crochet items for the house. I’d love to hear about any practical crochet items you’ve made.

That just leaves me to wish you a very Happy New Year and all the best for 2018 and beyond.
