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 designs and colours. Theres something to suit every personality, every decor of home. Weve produced two previous books of tea cozy designs, and youve loved them, so were pleased to announce our third. In this book weve pushed the boundaries of tea cozy design even further. Youll find plenty of imaginative projects to challenge your hook and needle skills, but weve also made sure weve included enough beautifully simple patterns to suit the beginner knitters amongst you and those with a more minimalist taste.
These are not your grandmother's tea cozies! The latest and greatest installment in this well-loved, bestselling series offers proof positive that the best place for a tempest is not in
a teapot, but on
one. From a froth of colorful butterflies to a cute and clever mermaid motif to a lush grapevine on a trellis and more, here are 30 gorgeous, creative patterns featuring knitting, felting, and crochet designs suitable for crafters of all levels.
