Pouf Pouf

What do we do when it's too cold to go anywhere? Crochet a decadent tea cozy. Goodman says the teapot has a big hair-do now. It's big, pouf-y and much ado; a very cool pattern. You can find the free pattern, Scalloped Tea Cosy here. I was curious about the number of treble stitches in this pattern so I did the math. 1,728 treble stitches.  It works up quickly though and is soooooo worth your time as it always brings smiles when used at teatime.
Hope you're nice and cozy, too.  :)

  5. I made one of these a few months ago for a lady - I was surprised at how easy it was once I got going! It looks so complicated, but once you see it taking shape, it goes much easier than I would have thought to begin with. I just love this cozy! Now I need to make one for myself! :) Thanks for sharing - yours turned out FANTASTIC! I love the colors you used...

  10. Alhana's right, it does look like a purple pineapple. You're right, it is quite decadent. Is that the old british castles pot? I don't even recognize it.
