The Lemon Tea Cosy was inspired by my new kitchen theme in my country home in the heart of France countryside. How could I not have a tea cosy to go with my new kitchen, whilst sitting at our bistro-style table and chairs, facing out of the kitchen window

I loved it so much I thought I would make it available for you to make too

It is all crochet, and consists of creating 3 whole lemons, 2-halves of a sliced open lemon, 6 lemon slices, 11 lemon leaves and 6 flowers

I decided to also crochet a lovely ‘mock’ doily at the bottom of the cosy, it really does finish the whole cosy so well, but you can leave this out if you dont like it. I made mine for display more, but already onto another one, but this time with a white cosy, leaving everything else the same

The direct link to the crochet pattern is at this link or why not visit the whole website of my designs, which includes plenty of other tea cosies for you to make. Some are purely crochet patterns, others all knitted patterns and then my earlier ones have a mix of both techniques

When you decide to make this Lemon Tea Cosy or any of the other tea cosies I had you in mind when writing out the pattern, step by step, hints, tips and comments to make a difference to your enjoyment of creating this Lemon tea cosy. 4

Of course try any other patterns, whichever one you choose you will receive my exclusive matching cutout-to-make envelope to store you pattern in, as I am sure you will not only make it once, like me

Take care and virtual big hugs to you

The inspiration for my Geranium Tea Cosy pattern









I just love Geraniums, reminds me of my homeland, Italy. Geraniums everywhere during Spring to Autumn. I have them in my garden terracotta pots & have been meaning to make a tea cosy for over a year now. After a lot of thought on how to go about it (and finding the time) after all the excitement of the announcement of me finally becoming a grandmother, I have finally put my idea into practice. I have the pattern available for you at my website: https://www.tbeecosy.com/product/geranium-tea-cosy, as well at Etsy, at this link: https://www.etsy.com/…/sho…/Nowmine/tools/listings/498499489

I am now busy on the same pattern, but on more subtle colors, for those that like a more ‘calmer’ look, yet not compromising on the ‘realism’ of the plant.  I will upload a photo once it is done

I have also attached my inspiration photo I used to make up my pattern, you be the judge, did I get it right?
