Tell us more about what inspired you. I saw a photo of the tea cosy and it mentioned it was from a Patons knitting pattern. I bought the pattern and couldn't wait to have a go at knitting it. In my version, the colours of the flowers don't match the suggestions on the pattern as I had lots of coloured wools in my stash, so didn't want to buy anymore.

An easy pattern to follow and is quick to knit up. There's a total of 24 flowers and 12 leaves sitting in the basket, which meant a lot of ends to darn/weave in. But well worth the effort. It's received several compliments already.
