Only 25 days to go, to get your tea cosy entries in!
This one is from a vintage pattern, published in 1935 by Madame Weigel. In the original, there was a large satin bow at the top. I've replaced that with a crochet rose, and small I-cord bow. The I-cord actually gathers the centre of the cosy together. The knitting is done without any shaping. Make a length of the garter stitch pattern; sew the lower edges for a few centimetres; gather in the centre; and there you go! Tea cosy completed! I have posted this one under the vintage patterns tab.
