Flower Power Tea Cosy by Jenny Whitehead


A modern makeover of the classic tea cosy, this quick knit makes a perfect gift. The two-tone body is capped with a posy of bold flowers that take full advantage of the firm hold that you get from 100% natural wool. The pattern offers some challenges for intermediate level knitters: colour weaving and a ruche technique to create thickness in the body, short rows and grafting for a seamless circumference of the flower petals.


  • Pattern & Kit –
    Your colours are weighed out in the correct quantities so you have the right amount for your cosy.
  • Pattern –
    Buy the pattern & use your own yarn choice (we recommend Adele’s Pure Wool DK. As an alternative, you can use Nurturing Fibres SuperTwist DK)
