Have a Yarn

Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia



June 2009 - Felted Tea Cozy


Yarn: Galway Paint 1 skein (100 grams)
Needles: 5.5mm

With main color cast on 110 sts, place a marker and join. Knit 8.5” then place a marker after 55 sts. (You will now have two markers.)

Row 1: K2tog, knit to 2 sts before marker, k2tog, slip marker, k2tog, knit to 2 sts before marker k2 tog. This decreases 4 sts.
Row 2: Knit.

Continue decreasing in this manner until there are 26 sts left.

Next row: *K2 tog, k1 Repeat from * to end.

Bind off stitches and sew seam or do a three needle bind off.

This tea cozy can also be made with leftover yarn. The striped ones are made of Galway and the purple and blue cozy is made of a combination of Galway yarn and Tove doubled. This pattern fits a four cup tea pot but can be modified to fit a smaller or larger pot.
