Tea Cozy Revisited

I had so much fun making Mum a tea cozy that I had to make one for myself. I like this pattern better because it leaves the handle and spout free so it can be left on the pot while you pour your tea.

I used Red Heart Collage yarn "Rust" and a 6.5mm K crochet hook. The larger hook makes the cozy slightly more form fitting. The yarn is Variegated, soft and machine washable. I plan on making a hat with a matching scarf out of this yarn next since it warmed my lap so well while I was working on it.

First I made two circles. They are large enough to cover the body of the teapot half way around the sides. I put a loop on one and a wooden button on the other to help hold the cozy in place when it is done.

Next I sew the two rounds together in the places I indicated in the picture. The button hooks under the handle and keeps the cozy in place. There you have it; a simple and fun tea cozy. Have fun!
