Seed-Stitch Tea Cozy

"Utilitarian charm."

A tea cozy does the very important job of keeping your tea at the optimum temperature during steeping and deliciously hot 'til you pour the next cup. We think they should be adorable too. We’re in love with this wee Scottie pup charted by our Celtophile friend, Sandy Blue! Add winsome style to your tea cozy using duplicate stitch from our new free Scottie chart.

Our Seed-Stitch Tea Cozy has several fun techniques but is definitely doable in an evening or two. It was designed by our own Karen Alfke for our Spring 2012 newsletter story about Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran.

Karen included a plain stockinette panel you can embellish as simply–or as fancifully–as you like. Or omit the plain panel and make it seed-stitch all over. Either way, it's a charming housewarming, shower or hostess gift.

Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran is machine washable to boot, so it's also perfect for the Churchmouse Ribbed & Ruffled Tea Cozies pattern.
