Dawn Brocco's adorable Strawberry Tea Cozy
has spout and handle openings, so the cozy can remain on the teapot, whilst
pouring, and comes in 2-3 and 3-4 cup sizes.

mostly Stockinette with a pattern round of dropped sts – quickly learned. Dawn
used this stitch pattern to design her

edging. Four leaves, an I-Cord stem and I-Cord vines with newly forming white
berries embellish the top. White seeds are stitched on after the knitting is
