Tea Cozy Knitting Pattern

Janice Helge

Tea Cozy Knitting Pattern
Two tea cozy knitting patterns are included here for different sized pots.

Larger Tea Pot
Size:
About 7" tall and 9" wide

Gauge:
12 sts and 14 rows = 4" with two strands held together

Materials:
Size 11 US (8 mm) needles
Two 3.5 ounces worsted weight yarn

Instructions:
With two strands held together, CO 63 sts.

Row 1 (RS): k
Row 2 and every WS row: p
Row 3: k
Row 5: *k4, yo, sl 1, k1, psso; rep from * to last 3 sts, k3
Row 7: k2, k2tog, yo, k1, yo, sl 1, k1, psso, *k1, k2tog, yo, k1, yo, sl 1, k1, psso; repeat from * to last 2 sts, k2
Rows 9 and 11: k
Row 13: k1, yo, sl 1, k1, psso, *k4, yo, sl 1, k1, psso; rep from * to end.
Row 15: k2, yo, sl 1, k1, psso, k1, k2tog, yo, *k1, yo, sl 1, k1, psso, k1, k2tog, yo; repeat from * to last 2 sts, k2.
Row 16: k

Repeat the above 16 rows once more.

Row 33: k
Row 34: p

Then decrease as follows:

Row 1: k1, *k2, k2 tog, repeat from * across row, k2-48 sts
Row 2: k1, *p2, p2 tog, repeat from * across row, p3-37 sts
Row 3: k1, *k2 tog, k2, repeat from * across row- 28 sts
Row 4: k1, p2 tog across row, p1-15 sts
Row 5: k1, k2 tog across row-8 sts

Cut yarn, leaving about 10-12 inches for sewing. Thread end through the stitches on the needle and pull tightly together for the top, then sew a couple inches down the side. Leaving an opening in the middle of the seam for the handle, sew about 1-1½ inches up from the bottom. Before finishing off the ends, you may want to check the size of the opening by putting it onto the teapot.

I worked a single crochet stitch around the opening edge to finish it but you may choose to leave it plain. I also did a single crochet edging around the bottom of the cozy to firm up that edge.

Smaller Tea Pot
Size:
About 5½" tall and 8" wide

Gauge:
14 sts and 16 rows = 4" with two strands held together

Materials:
Size 10½ US (6.5 mm) needles
Two 3.5 ounces worsted weight yarn

Instructions:
With two strands held together, CO 63 sts.

Work the 16 pattern rows once and then work rows 1 through 10 of the pattern.

Row 27: k
Row 28: p

Then decrease as follows:

Row 1: k1, *k2, k2 tog, repeat from * across row, k2-48 sts
Row 2: k1, *p2, p2 tog, repeat from * across row, p3-37 sts
Row 3: k1, *k2 tog, k2, repeat from * across row- 28 sts
Row 4: k1, p2 tog across row, p1-15 sts
Row 5: k1, k2 tog across row-8 sts.

Cut yarn, leaving about 10-12 inches for sewing. Thread end through the stitches on the needle and pull tightly together for the top, then sew a couple inches down the side. Leaving an opening in the middle of the seam for the handle, sew about 1" up from the bottom. Before finishing off the ends, you may want to check the size of the opening by putting it onto the teapot.

I did the single crochet edge around both the handle opening and the bottom edge on this tea cozy also.
