Cosy Tea Love

This colourful Fair Isle design features panels of hearts and little houses inspired by a croft house on the west coast of Scotland. 

The Home Sweet Home Tea Cosy pattern includes a knitting chart to make it with 11 pastel colours of Jamieson's of Shetland dk yarn and is knitted in the round.

It would be great project to practice colour work knitting using some of the traditional fair isle motifs.

Also included in the pattern are instructions for a 'Scandinavian' style colour way using just 4 colours of Jamieson's of Shetland dk yarn in red, white, light grey and dark grey.

Knitting skills used in the this project are:
cast on, cast off, knit stitch, purl stitch, knit two stitches together, slip stitch, pass stitch over, working with changes of colour, grafting, sewing duplicate stitch.

approximately 28 stitches over 32 rows = 10cm (4ins).

3.75 mm (US 5) circular knitting needle length no more than 50cm in length. 3.75 mm circular needle, 40cm long or a set of 3.75 mm dpn’s for the decrease section. For the cord x2 4.5 mm dpn’s (US 7).
