A teacozy based on the infamous "Purple Shirt of Sex" worn by Sherlock Holmes in the BBC Sherlock series. Optional Suzhou graffiti (from The Blind Banker, S1/E2) on the back.
Uses bulky yarn or worsted yarn held double.
Requires 1-2 skeins of main color, small quantity of contrast color. I used Amethyst Heather and Caution.
Written pattern, with charts for the graffiti and collar.
