Tea Cosy Knitting Patterns

Updated on May 27, 2013

Novelty Tea Cosy Knitting Patterns

These novelty tea cosies are both functional and decorative. Not only do they keep your teapot warm, but they do so in such a stylish way, they're sure to be a great talking point whenever you have friends around for tea. You'll find dozens of novelty tea cosy knitting patterns here.

I have got to tell you that I just love some of these tea cosies. I think that every since I was about 15 years old I have loved tea things and tea parties. My 16th birthday party was a tea party.

So this page of tea cosy knitting patterns is really great, not just for you to make for yourself, but also make to give away as gifts. I know that I would love to get a pretty knitted tea cosy for one of my teapots. (here's a quick thought. You could go to a charity shop and by and nice looking teapot for a good price and then give it a good wash. Then make a beautiful cover for it. That would be an amazing gift!)

Have fun knitting!

Now, is it cosy or cozy? In the USA they are called tea cozies, but in Britain they are called tea cosies. On this page, I have kept the original spelling of the page I'm linking to.

      I've never knit a tea cozy, but I should! Perhaps a bumblebee tea cozy or a vegetables tea cozy... for tea in the vegetable garden!
