My hubby asked me to make a tea cosy, but we both wanted something modern rather than something frilly or granny-ish. We have a minimal white teapot with a kind of Japanese-inspired shape, so I thought I would find some masculine yarn in neutral colours to make a thick warm cosy to fit it.

I chose a dark chocolate brown superchunky cotton yarn that has strands of white and grey satiny ribbon running through it, and here’s the result. I didn’t follow a pattern, I just made it up as I went along, and I am pleased with the results. I have a whole ball of the yarn left, so I’d like to make a matching tray liner (dare I say modern ‘doily’?) or some coasters for the teacups.

Miko is addicted to crafting, and can often be found late at night drooling over Ravelry, or muttering "just one more row...". At last count, she had 187 different kinds of yarn in her stash, and is currently seeking storage for more. Ch2 and turn.
