Drawstring Tea Cosy (for Aoife)

Project Description

What was your source for this crocheting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Drawstring Tea Cosy Link to website or photo www.coatsandclark.com/Crafts/Crochet/Projects/HomeDec/WT1842+Drawstring+Tea+Cozy.htm What are you most proud of? Ive never made a tea cosy before (in the USA we generally dont have teapots quite like they do here in Ireland / UK where its actually a part of the culture) but I think it turned out quite fine especially with my added touch of the flower. I made it out of scrap yarn that I had a beautiful dark violet and pale green. What do you think? Im thinking it looks a bit basket ish in these colors. What advice would you give someone starting this project? This pattern had two new stitches for me the Spike Double Crochet and the reverse single crochet (which blew my mind until I looked it up on youtube). If you're not sure how to do a stitch, even after reading the instructions, try a youtube search for an actual demonstration.

What you will need

  • Violet and mint green acrylic / wool combination yarn.
