So what's kitsch about a crochet tea cosy and hot pad? I guess it is all a matter of taste, but if it is tasteless and tacky we Aussies do it with style! In which case is it then kitsch? My Nana always had a tea cosy. It was a part of growing up with the scones and jam and cream. Silly thing was she used the tea cosy to protect the Shelly Tea pot.

The reality is that tea cosies work in doing a mighty fine job of keeping the teapot toasty warm, and the hot pad or pot holder protects hands and surfaces.

This pattern set includes instructions for how to make a popcorn tea cosy and hot pad or pot holder. Patterns are emailed to you in PDF form. Instructions are provided for both a large and smaller tea pot.

Try a new age look in basic black and white, or be as vulgar as you wish with random brights. Before long you will be popcorning all over the place!

This is a great pattern to use all those scraps of 8 ply, worsted weight, double knit yarns. Patterns use a size 8 (4mm hook) and are provided in both Australian/British and American Instructions.

This is an original pattern and is copyright and not to be reproduced to be sold for personal profit. I have no problems in these being used for gifts, kitchen teas or charity fund raising as I think they are just perfect for that. There is nothing wrong with sharing the kitsch arround!
