X x X Anniversary Tea Cozy
To celebrate our 10th, we stirred together a few of our favorite things: cables, tweed and tea! And just to be a little eXtra clever, we made sure to sneak in 10 (X!) little X-ing cables. We think every home needs a Brown Betty. And every teapot needs a tweedy cozy!
This tea cozy is worked in two pieces, then seamed, leaving openings for handle and spout.
To fit standard Brown Betty-style teapots: 4-cup (6-cup) teapot.
Yarn information given for 4-cup size; 6-cup size in parentheses ( ).
