This pattern uses the intarsia knitting technique, a stranded colorwork pattern that is easier than it looks. It can be more difficult but for those up to the challenge, it’s a beautiful piece for your collection.
If you’ve not knit intarsia before, here is a quick video tutorial to show you how.
UPDATE: The digital version of this pattern was discontinued on Ravelry. After a reader asked me where she could find a copy — I got lucky by finding an old thumb drive with the pattern downloaded on it.
Thank goodness! I’m knitting it again as I write.
The tea cozy pattern is from Audrey’s Tea Shop.
