Puffy Rib Tea Cosy

"This was inspired by some vintage tea cosies that were popular in the 1930s that had a flower basket on top and ribs of puffy stitches. Here I have used a hanging loop instead any basket small enough to fit on top of this little cosy would be too small. For a larger cosy you can make a basket. I tell you how at the end of the pattern under Variations."

I love finding free vintage patterns that are actually still usable today. I am more interested in the vintage patterns that are for kitchen items more so than clothing because clothing styles come back in cycles and have to be timed correctly to work with the modern styles.

What a cute and vintage idea! I am familiar with tea cozies. They are something my grandmother used to use. I am not quite sure About how I feel about a thicker worsted weight for them- i much rather prefer using a crochet thread. But it is quite a different look, the way they are shown here. The flowers with the little center "pearl" are beautiful!

The first thing I noticed about this project is that the designer is from New Zealand. That probably explains why she still uses a tea pot cozy, let alone a pot itself. This pattern is a bit challenging because it uses UK terminology instead of US, but the designer reminds crafters how the stitches are different. Sadly, I dont have a teapot anymore, but this pattern has inspired me to hit the thrift stores in search of one!
