Basic Skills Necessary:

Pattern Description:

I believe that when you knit or crochet something, you tell a story through those stitches. That's the reason that I dye yarn and spinning fibers inspired by our favorite stories, because I believe it adds depth to the story that my friends and customers tell through their projects.

I designed this pattern to expand on the story. I used yarn dyed in my "Violet Crawley" colorway to make - what else? - a teapot cozy. I imagine myself sitting down to Tea Time with the Dowager Countess. I'm not sure she would approve of my spiced chai tea latte, but I KNOW she would love this hand-knit teapot cozy inspired by her.
