How do you make a tea cosy sweater?
Make a tea cozy by using the neck opening of an old sweater. I simply eye-balled the amount of sweater I needed by laying the tea pot on the inside-out sweater and drawing a sewing line around it. Stitched on the line, then cut it out leaving about 5/8 seam allowance beyond the stitching. Turn right-side-out.
How many stitches do I need to knit a tea COSY?
Once you have decided on your two colours, take a pair of knitting needles – size 5mm. Cast on 72 stitches (multiple of 6). For a medium cosy cast on 60 stitches (multiple of 5).
