Another tea cosy to fit a one cup pot. This is in an easy 1 row rib pattern using two strands of dk yarn, which makes the cosy nice and thick. I used two shades of yellow.
I've added knitted flowers and leaves but it would also look great with a pompom
I love my hobby of designing patterns and posting them online. But I often can’t find anyone who has the time to test my patterns, although I do knit them up a few times myself. So mistakes can slip by, especially typos when transferring the pattern to my blog. So, please, please, if you find and errors or have any queries, let me know either by commenting below or contacting me via the contact form. Thanks
