Add color to your table and keeps your tea piping hot in the pot

I firmly believe every teapot needs a fabulous crocheted cozy. Being both functional and attractive, a tea cozy adds color to your table and keeps your tea piping hot in the pot. Work your tea cozy in pure wool for added insulation.

The tea cozy shown here was made using Cascade 220 (100% Peruvian highland wool, 3.5oz/100g, 220yd/201m) in colors #8415 (A), #7804 (B), #9493 (C) and #8901 (D).

finished measurements
Approx. 71?2" × 81?4" (19cm × 21cm)

Color Commentary from Sarah London
with a center of burgundy for depth, followed by pink and shell, then finished with purple, the granny squares that make up this tea cozy mirror the colors of the placemats and napkin Holders, completing the table setting and uniting all projects.
