We’ll be seeing my in-laws this summer and I wanted to knit something for my MIL. We enjoyed looking at patterns and getting yarn in the past together and I wanted to do a quick project. Because they have a B & B she uses tea cosies so I looked for a pattern. I wanted to do a sheep theme as she has a few sheep themed items. I couldn’t find a good one! Well I found one that was a pasture scene on Ravelry which was pretty but all that was posted was a picture. No pattern. So I went in a different direction as I’m not quite at a place where I could come up with my own pattern.
I found this pattern for Chamomile Flower cosy. I found some gorgeous burgundy wool as I really don’t like beige or colours close to beige. Think that comes from living in a flat that was all beige. Blah.
The components are very easy to knit. I did have a thought that the main bit of the tea cosy would make a great hat as well but that’s for another day!
The flowers were a little tricky putting together in a way that the petals look natural. I felt like I had butter fingers trying to get them go into circles. After they are shaped add the yellow pieces.
The pattern calls for six leaves but because of the way I placed the flowers I knitted seven leaves so it looked balanced.
I hope she likes this but I will be keeping my eye out for a decent sheep pattern. 😊
That is lovely, Virginia. You are so talented.
Thank you. 😊. I’m glad you like it!
that is honestly the most beautiful tea cosy I’ve ever seen, not kidding!
Wow, thank you! I was pleased with the wool I found.
So cute! I haven’t gotten very far with learning how to knit, but this is lovely.
It’s surprisingly not difficult but some patterns definitely require patience!
I’m sure your tea cosy will be much appreciated and loved!
Thank you. 🙂
