Tulip Tea Cosy Knitting Pattern

Tulip Tea Cosy Knitting Pattern


'When it's spring again, I'll bring again tulips from Amsterdam'...

But in the meantime, how about a very spring-like Tulip Tea Cosy...

Tulips are such a classical and recognisable flower I couldn't resist making a Tea Cozy featuring them. These particular tulips grow beneath a cheery, pom pom sun.

The cosy shown in the photos has been knitted in Patons Fab DK. The Lime colour way shown has been discontinued and the cosy can now be made in Patons Smoothie, which does have Lime. Further photos will follow to show the new colours. 

The pattern uses 3 shades of green, which can be interchangeable. Please decide which order of green you prefer before beginning the pattern. 

The design knits up quickly from simple instructions and is a fun make.
