Description

The Witches Brew tea cosy was designed for the Simply Knitting Magazine issue 164 which went on sale on the 15th of September 2017.

The wicked witch tea cosy making a brew was inspired by halloween witches and they evil antics. I remember a song we sang at primary school about an old witch, she always sounds creepy and she had a hop toad, so I wanted to include amphibians on my cosy design.

After compiling some research about 'knitted in one piece or sewing lots of bits together', I found that most people would rather knit in one piece; even if that meant short rows. So the frogs and the spider are cleverly knitted in one piece; and ingenuously come together.

The witches Brew tea cosy can also be made into a free standing figure with the aid of a knitted base that covers the bottom so that it can be stuffed, perfect for a halloween decoration, or a child's toy or why not fill it with something heavier and make a door stop?

The Witches Brew tea cosy and doll is knitted in Hayfield Bonus DK yarn.

When you fancy a brew the spooky witch will magic you up a hot cup of tea.
