Pattern Details

I've gone cottage crazy again! another Suffolk cottage but this time knitted tea cosies in two styles, made in chunky yarn for extra thickness and insulation. The front and back walls are made separately then the roof is knit in one piece across the top of both walls. A hem is made for the roof, I have given full instructions with photos, and an alternative method for this. The windows and door are made in double knit yarn and sewn onto walls. The best bit, for me, is the finishing touches, and I enjoyed experimenting with different types of stitches for the flowers, especially the french knot for roses. - but use your own imagination here. And don't be too fussy about neatness of stitches, it's a 'quaint' cottage! A note about yarn. I couldn't find the colour I wanted for the pink cottage in chunky so used 2 strands of double knit. I mainly used double knit for the flowers etc. This pattern is an update of my previous one in which I used the intarsia (colour block) method for windows and doors. If you buy this pattern but would also like a copy of my previous version please message me.

Sold by

My mother taught me to knit at about age 10. At 16 crochet dresses were the high fashion (remember the 60's anyone) so I taught my self to crochet and sold my designs in my mother's yarn shop. Four children came along so I knitted, crocheted and sewed almost all their clothes and ones for their dolls too, even my son's Action Man got a rather fetching army sweater! My children grew up, I started a career and didn't take up crafting again until I retired 10 years ago. After knitting a cardigan for my granddaughter I made her barbie the same design and discovered that I like to make small things such as doll clothes. My hobby has grown and now I design clothes for Barbie, build a bears, Baby Annabell dolls and also tea cosies. I write up the patterns and post them online. Have a look at my website below where I post my free patterns.
