Hi makers! Today I want to share with you a free knitting pattern for a tea cozy. This pretty cozy is made with a fluffy white yarn in two pieces. The peach flowers and green leaves are made as separate pieces and then stitched into place. A lovely easy knitting project, for a beginner or seasoned knitter.
Flower Tea Cozy
100G Chunky Yarn – I used Sirdar Snuggle Snowflake Chunky (White)
50g double knit yarn (I used peach) for the flowers
50g double knit yarn (green) for the leaves
9mm Knitting Needles
4mm knitting needles
Tea Cosy (make 2 pieces)
With your chunky yarn and 9mm knitting needles cast on 20
Knit every row until piece measures 6 inches.
Next row – K2TOG knit to last 2 stitches K2TOG
Repeat this on ever row until you have 10 stitches left.
With your 4mm knitting needles and double knit yarn (peach) cast on 20sts (Leave a tail of 8 inches)
Row 1 and each alternate row – Purl
Row 2: Increase knit wise into each stitch.
Row 4: *K1, increase into next stitch*, repeat * to * to end.
Row 6: *K2, increase into next stitch*, repeat *to* to end.
Row 8: *K3, increase into next stitch*, repeat *to* to end.
Row 9: Purl
Row 10: Cast off Knit wise
Curl your flower inwards and secure by stitching loose cast off end through the bottom. Leave a tail, long enough to sew onto the top of the tea cosy.

Stitch the tea cosy pieces together leaving holes for the handle and spout. When you have secured your knitted flowers into shape, stitch into place on top of the tea cosy. Arrange the leaves where you want them around the flowers and stitch into place.
Weave in all loose ends.
