Project

Chicken Teapot cozy

What are you most proud of? That I actually fifnished it on time and it looked great. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Read the pattern very carefully. I had trouble with the terms as I am a self taught knitter. When I asked our local wool shop owner she said just do it step by step. It worked.

You Can Make This

Nanj made Chicken Teapot cozy with:

  • I used two different 3 different wools...the main wools for the chicken are a "feathers" or Boa wool and a matching 8 ply (this is Australian
  • I used 4 ply North American wool. I used a bit of red 4 ply for the wattles and comb and a bit of yelow for the beak. It was a challenge for me but lots of fun. My friend Julia loved it.

Q&A with Nanj

LeoMom asked:
Is this pattern still available?
Nanj answered:
yes, I can send it to you after scanning and making a PDF file. $5.00 if you are interested.
LeoMom asked:
Yes, I am! Just let me know what to do next :) Thanks so much! I'm mom to a whole lotta chickens and drink a whole lot of tea. I love this chicken pattern!!!
Nanj answered:
are you in the US or Canada? Or maybe overseas? You can do a bank transfer if you are in Canada. You could send a bank draft if you are anywhere else. My email is nanjlowe@gmail.com (for Canada) my address is 163 King Street, Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada B4V 1A5. for anywhere else. I have made a PDF file which I can forward to you. We too had chickens and ducks but have moved from British Columbia to Nova Scotia and are waiting until Spring to build a small coop. We are in the town and can have 4 hens and x amount of ducks...it's like they hadn't thought that anyone would want ducks. Funny. I am knitting another chicken teapot cosy in black, on round needles for a new experience. Hope you enjoy it too.
LeoMom asked:
Hi Nanj... I am so determined to get your pattern but keep forgetting where it is! Sigh... Now, I will figure out how to do a bank draft and, hopefully, still be able to get your PDF :)
Nanj answered:
sure. I have changed computers but have it in my files....you have my address?
