Betty is knitted from the top down, starting with the icord loop. The ridged top is knitted in the round, then the cabled sides are knitted flat. Increases and decreases create the curve detail between the cables. At the bottom the sides are joined to knit in the round with applied icord to finish.
Full written instructions are included for everything. A supplementary chart is also included for the cabled sides.
For a tea cosy in the size shown you will need 110-123 metres/120-135 yarnds of super bulky yarn.
At the given gauge the tea cosy measures 8” high and is 13” across at the widest point, ie it is suitable for a large teapot. Choose needles for your preferred methods of small diameter circular knitting and flat knitting. Suggested needle size is 6mm/US 10. Tension/gauge is 13 stitches and 19 rows per 4″ in stocking stitch/stockinette.
The pattern also includes needle and yarn recommendations for smaller tea cosies.
The Betty pattern is also available in ‘Born & Bred’ (see ‘Books’).
