Tea Cozy

Lion Brand® Lion® Cotton - Cotton-Ease®

GAUGE:

13 sts + 18½ rows = 4 in. [10 cm] in pattern. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch

STITCH EXPLANATION:

sp-2 (spike st 2 rows below) A single crochet worked in the st corresponding to the next st, but 2 rows below the working row (instead of in the usual st 1 row below the working row).

COLOR SEQUENCE
*1 row A, 1 row B, 1 row C, 1 row D, 1 row E, 1 row F, 1 row G; rep from * for color sequence.

NOTES:

  1. Unused colors should be carried up wrong side of work.
  2. To change color, work last stitch to the point where there are 2 loops on hook, yarn over with new color to complete stitch.

FRONT
With A, ch 40.
Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and each ch across; change to B in last st – 39 sc.
Row 2: Ch 1, turn, sc in first 3 sc, (sc in next st 2 rows below (sp-2 made), sc in next 3 sts) across; change to C in last st.
Row 3: Ch 1, turn, sc in first sc, (sp-2 over next st, sc in next 3 sts) across to last 2 sts, sp-2 over next st, sc in last sc; change to D in last st.
Continuing in Color Sequence, rep Rows 2 and 3 for pattern until 33 rows have been worked, end with 1 row E.
Row 34 (Eyelet Row): With F, ch 1, turn, sc in first sc, ch 1, skip next st, sc in next st, (sp-2 over next st, sc in next st, ch 1, skip next st, sc in next st) across; change to G in last st.
Continue to work in Color Sequence and pattern for 5 more rows. Fasten off.

BACK
Work same as Front.

Tea Cozy Reviewed by Susie Moten on 2010-07-08 ***
I did not do a good job with the yarn carrying, and found the spike stitch challenging at first; mine was huge (fit my 12 cup teapot, though I made it for my sister's 6-cup teapot). It works very well, though.
