So, of course, I started with one of Alice's Granny Mandalas in Knitpicks Comfy Cotton sport weight with a size F/3.75 mm hook.
Granny Tea Cosy I used the DK weight wool & 4.0 mm hook. I adapted Alice's pattern a bit as I went along, making 2-row stripes instead of one-row (gives it a rick-rack look :) and I also did it in the round at the bottom (she fastens it with a button), which fits over my tea pot just fine (this is one of my larger tea pots, too). You can see the knob on top just peeking out here, which is one of the details that sold me on this pattern. I like the chromatic progression of this yarn much better. It just took me an evening to make, so it was a very quick & rewarding project! And colourful!!!
