Angry bird tea cozy
My youngest son Jasper lives on his own since last summer and asked for a teacozy. I made him an Angry Black Bird lookalike one.
Here is how I did it.
I used some bulky black leftovers to knit this hatlike teacosy. The rolling hem allows fitting for different sizes of teapots. Teacosy would fit a childs head as a hat. Can easily be knitted by hand of course.
Knit on my Brother 260, tension 4.
CO 60 st. and knit 50 rows of stocking stitch.
move EOS to the adjacent stitch and knit 1 row.
Knit 2 plain rows. Repeat until a few st. are left. Thread yarn through remaining stitches. Sew back seam.
Decorate using felt, buttonds and fleece fabric for eyes and beak.
