There's nothing quite like sharing a pot of tea with friends. It brightens even the greyest of days. But, as the conversation flows and you reach for that second comforting cuppa, the last thing you want is for your high spirits to be dampened by a tasteless, tepid brew. A tea cozy, therefore, is an essential piece of kit for the kitchen. The wonderful thing about tea cozies is they can be made in a dazzling array of styles and colours. There's something to suit every personality and every home decor, from minimalist to wildly exuberant. We've produced three previous books of tea cozies, and you've loved them so much that we're producing a fourth. Tea Cozies 4 has both knitting and crochet designs and includes imaginative projects for all levels, from beginners to advanced patterns for those who like to challenge their hook and needle skills.
For this title GMC invited some of our best and most popular yarn craft authors to contribute designs, such as Emma Varnam, author of Crocheted Keyrings and Charms, Sian Brown, author of The Knitted Home and Alison Howard, author of Mug Hugs. Other original designs were created by readers of Knitting magazine, each with a great eye for design and colour as well as skill with needles and hooks. This is the reason for the brilliantly imaginative variety of tea cozies in this book.
