Free Tea Cosy Patterns

Pin It “There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea.” 
― Henry JamesThe Portrait of a Lady

We love nothing more than a cup of tea in the afternoon and we've been making assorted tea cosies for a while now.  I doesn't matter if you like the full bodied flavour of English Breakfast or the citrus undertones of Earl Grey, we think you'll agree a pretty cosy really does add a certain something special to the whole tea experience.

Posy Cosy

A lovely floral cosy that's just perfect for springtime,  The cream base is knitted and the roses and leaves are crochet, giving a lovely textured effect.  Don't forget to make a delicious cake and sit on the porch in the sunshine with a good book,  to show this cosy to good effect.

Christmas Cosy

A festive and Wintry cosy that's knitted in rib and embellished with a crochet snowman, embroidered snowflakes and a pom pom on top for a touch of whimsy.  At the most hectic time of the year, who wouldn't want to sit down to a cup of tea with this Christmas themed cosy.

Mrs Potts Tea Cosy

Inspired by a 1940's pattern this knitted cosy is ideal if you are using vintage cups and sauces.  Knitted in moss stitch with an Icord Chrysanthemum it's a fabulous stash busting project and a wonderful gift for those with a passion for the past.

Loom Knit Tea Cosy

It can be hard to know what to make with a knifty/loom knitter once scarves and cowls have been mastered.  This cosy is made on the round knitter and the little floral embellishments on a flower loom kit.

Button Rose Tea Cosy

The shabby chic styling of our Button Rose Tea Cosy has made it one of the most popular on our blog.  Knitted, with a generous bouquet of crochet roses, it's sure to impress tea time guests.

Nordic Tea Cosy

If fairisle knitting is a passion then this tea cosy is the perfect accompaniment to your afternoon tea table.  Bold and stylish, a second cuppa never looked so good or inviting.

Happy crafting
