Café Pansy

Having released a pattern during the Olympics when no one was taking notice, I have left it until now to tell you about it!

The coffee cosy and mug rug were in an issue of Knit Now back in the winter.

Since then I have designed and made a matching tea cosy and cup cosy.

The mug rug makes a good swatch for the other things!

Everything else comes in at least 2 sizes; the tea and cafetiere cosies are sized for 2, 4 and 6 cup pots.

As well as the extra patterns, the leaflet contain more detailed instructions, and the charts in both colour and symbols, so you can print it out on a black and white printer. The cup cosy is photographed on several different cups so that you can see how it fits, and there are instructions for those who want a wider band of knitting.

And if anyone is wondering why the pix are taken with empty cups, I’ll tell you why. Several years ago I was photographing some mug rugs and I used my full cup of coffee. I knocked it over…. And vowed NEVER to use real liquid again!!

The pattern is for sale on Ravelry, and even if you are not a member, you can buy it for 5$ here:
