A Knitted Cosy fit for a teapot

Although this isn't a great picture I
thought I'd post my finished cosy.


I feel fairly happy about it,
I didn't drop any stitches,
it didn't end up half finished
stuck in a drawer somewhere
and it fits my teapot.
Not too shabby.

At first I did make it way too tall
so I managed to rip back a few rows
and make it shorter.
This pic shows it's true colour...
but I wish I could photoshop my
cosy so that it was bluer.

I used 4mm circs and one
skein of Noro Kureyon 163
and this lovely free
pattern by aemmeleia


This next pic shows how the needles
are positioned using the magic
loop technique.


I actually made this for my
sister for Xmas but it may
be too dark for her.
Also, the last time she visited
I asked her if she wanted tea and
she said "oh good god no!"

It is so beautiful! I love the colors. I never could get the hang of knitting. You took to it like a duck to water.

I love your teapot cozy! That Noro yarn is really pretty and matches the pattern perfectly.

If you want to adjust your colours without using photoshop, there is a free online tool you might want to consider. I use it all the time. It's called and it can link to your photobucket photos too.

P.S. I'm giving away 2 skeins of Malabrigo yarn of your choice on my blog. Drop by if you can!
