Pin It “There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea.”
― Henry James, The 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.
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.
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.
