Increasingly, however, making tea only entails dunking a teabag into a mug of hot water. We believe it's high time the teapot was dusted off and returned it to its former iconic status- dressed up in proper ceremonial robes, in the form of a lovely handmade cosy.
This was my first foray into crocheting, and it turned out to be much easier than I had expected. I would definitely recommend this pattern to anyone looking for a simple beginners project. It is made entirely using double crochet stitch. The pink and yellow colours make it look a bit like a Battenburg cake- ideal for afternoon tea...
I'll leave you with some words of wisdom from Billy Connolly:
“Never trust a man who, when left alone in a room with a tea cozy, doesn't try it on. ”
