A Bellyful Of Warm Tea

IMG_1632smallA long time ago I made a simple beginners pattern for a Tea Cosy. I made it in a turf brown Kilcarra Aran Tweed (can’t beat that yarn) with a pink tie. It’s an easy pattern but the other day,when I had the sample in my hand, I thought it looked terribly tired and miserable so when I came across an odd bag of ends of Aran weight yarn in my stash yesterday, I set to work immediately and this is what transpired.

I changed colour on every row for full-on colour funk while ensuring to crochet away the ends immediately, handy trick that! The yarn used is a bit of Kilcarra Aran Tweed, some Artesano Aran and some Létt-Lopi. The two ties are made from a couple of little balls of sari silk I’d forgotten I possessed.

The pattern is available for personal use for free and it can be downloaded right here! Enjoy your hot cuppa!

    Nic, the best part is that it was really great fun to make and to top it off, it took no time either! Nothing like a win. YAY!
