Every Christmas when I was growing up, my Mother made her Christmas puddings.
Tradition uses hard sauce, but ours was always served with loads of hot custard (an English sauce used for fruit pies, etc.) - yummy!
Still, the only way I like it.

It was also tradition that a sixpence (washed, of course) was mixed into the pudding before cooking.
It was said that whoever got the sixpence would have good luck for the coming year.
A sixpence was a small coin worth six pennies.

My Christmas tea cosy is a tribute to those times.
Unfortunately, like the sixpence, those days, and my mother are merely fond memories.

DESCRIPTION

The Pudding part of the cosy is knitted in a dark brown acrylic, rayon and wool blend tweed yarn.
Tweedy bits represent the fruit, currants and raisins, etc.
Topping/custard is cream/pale yellow - although, in photo it looks white.
Dark green holly and red berries are knitted in an acrylic yarn that has a touch of metallic for a bit of sparkle (new from previous years).
The custard/topping is knitted separately and sewn on, giving the tea cosy some extra insulation
Stretches to fit a 4-6 cup pot
Size is approx. 7"/18cm high
Turn the bottom ribbing up to make the cosy a bit shorter to fit your teapot, if needed.

TIP. Sew the openings and cosy can become a whimsical hat.

I have described colours as best I can, but please allow for variations in your monitor - not all monitors look the same.

WASHING
May be hand washed and dried flat (Preferred)
May also be machine-washed and dried on low settings inside out and placed in a lingerie bag.
PLEASE, DO NOT OVERDRY!
Made in a smoke-free home
