Oliver's pattern is here

Oliver cat's pattern has now been added to the Animal Cosies page.
Although I've only put knitting patterns on the blog so far, the Tea Cosy Competition is open for cosies made by any method. Felting, crochet, patchwork, embroidery, gluing....whatever! I'm very keen to see what you all come up with!
Entries need to be received by 27th June, so you still have plenty of time to get creative!
All the cosies will be displayed and sold at Warratina Lavender Farm, July 5th -13th. Money raised from the sale of the cosies goes to the Cancer Council.
