Here is a bit of a lop-sided picture
of my latest tea cosy
I made three flowers to go on the top
There is a bit of a story on how this cosy came about.
Back in 2009 I found this brown, green and orange cosy
at a garage sale.
At that time I had never seen a cosy like
this and wondered it I could make one like it.
I could figure out most of the pattern but
I really couldn't figure out how the ridges were made.
Fast forward to a couple of weeks ago when
I decided to look again on Ravlery
and there I found a bunch of cosies that
were made from an Australian booklet.
A sweet Ravelry member explained how
the stitch was made.
Turns out it is a puff stitch which
is made around the back post
of another puff stitch.
It causes this lovely edge that
stands out nicely from the flat dc.
Here is a shot of my cosy from the
other side which shows the ridges better.
I have to say this was a fun project from start to finish.
