Hey, dyu like the tea cosy I knitted for my DIL? My brief was red with white spots but I couldn't resist doing the mouse as well!

I made up my own pattern for the tea cosy and got the free sugar mouse pattern from Phoenixknits.

I really enjoyed doing this!

I've been asked for the pattern for the cosy:

Yes darling, its easy. I used worsted weight yarn and 5mm needles.

Make 2

Cast on 40 stitches and knit in k1, p1 rib until your work reaches about 3" above the teapot. Then work a row of k1, yo k2tog. Continue in rib for another inch then cast off.

Sew the 2 sides together leaving appropriate openings for the spout and handle.

You can use anything to thread through the holes and pull the top of the cosy together; I twisted a long double strand of yarn, held it in the middle and allowed it to twist around itself. Knot it tightly around the top and secure.

You can customise this pattern any way you like, adding your own embellishments, maybe a flower or two, fancy buttons, embroidery ...

Although I secure my ties inside, you may want to tie a nice bow at the top and add some pompons.

And feel free to put anything you like on top; knitted animal, mascot, flowers, pompom ...
