Poinsettia tea cosy
Poinsettia is one of my favourite tea cosies, knitted in cream and red 8 ply wool. It’s based on a free internet pattern for a cabled tea cosy from the December 1946 “My Home” Magazine.
I started knitting the flowers in the original cosy pattern but was unhappy with the result. Instead, after purchasing 100 Flowers to knit and crochet, I knitted the poinsettia flower on page 48 using 8 ply wool. I think it looks lovely together!
My poinsettia tea cosy on a red Maxwell infuser pot was a Christmas present for my “twin” Maria who was born on the exact same day as myself.
