Lysy: Sheep Tea Cosy

Zoë’s post on her cute knitted tea cosy reminded me that I had never shared pictures of one I made before Christmas. It was a present for some friends who use a tea cosy every day, but their current cosy definitely lacked cuteness. I used a pattern from this book and it was pretty straightforward. You create the shaggy look by winding a loop of wool around your finger before making each stitch – it looks hard but once you’re used to it it’s quite easy. I left the gaps in the sides quite large as I didn’t know the exact measurements of our friends’ teapot, but I was really pleased with how cute he turned out!
