Tea Cozies this Tuesday

Yikes! Talk about life putting you through the ringer, but really I don’t want to so instead here are tea cozies. We are big fans of tea cozies around here, they look great, keep your tea warm and can be quite the conversation starters. Also, since I have over dossed on tea towels I thought it was time for something completely different.

The Tea Mitten from Elisabeth Kleven is cute and chic. We love how this cozy hugs the pot and still lets you add more water without having to take the cozy off. Libby even made an upsized version for her giant tea pot out of some yarn we dyed together in an experiment. You can download the PDF of Elisabeth’s pattern via her blog or Ravlery.

You may have seen this photo on our cozies page, it is my version of the fantastic Kureyon Cozy by Emma Crew from Knitty. The model is my trusty Brown Betty. Libby also did a version of this cozy in a fun yellow tweed for her smaller red tea pot. This cozy is quick and easy to make and also easily lets you get to the lid of the pot to add water. The pattern makes a cozy to fit either a 4 cup or  6 cup pot.

This cozy is a reverse engineered pattern by Keren Smith; she wanted to make a new cozy like the one her grandmother had made from a traditional pattern that has been around probably as long as people have been knitting tea cozies. This cozy really is a champ, the thickness created by the puckering results in some major insulation. You do have to take the cozy off to refresh the pot but I think such a cute cozy would be worth it.

Well, there you have them, check in next week for more; I think Tea Cozy Tuesday will be here for a while.

Happy Tuesday!

  1. I’ve never used a tea cozy, most I’ve seen before have been quilted, and look like overgrown oven mitts. These are so much cuter. I really like the last one.

  2. Very cute! Much more useful than the large fabric/quilted one I got at the English Rose last week.

  3. Cute indeed! There are some hideous tea cozys that I have seen, but those are pleasant and cute.
