The Purple Teacozy

July 3, 2012

Have you encountered BBC Sherlock yet?

Have you encountered BBC Sherlock fandom?

Have you encountered the Purple Shirt of Sex?

I have, recently, and when you add in the Ravellenic Games, well, there was only one logical course of action.

I present the Purple Teacozy of Sex:

The pattern is two bucks on Ravelry.  Why don’t you make yourself one!?

    The purple tea cozy is cute. I started to knit it today but I’m having a problem. On page 3 “back without graffiti” where it says
    WS: Work as set, TURN
    What does “set” mean?
    Help! Sally.

      “Work as set” means keep going with what you’ve got – keep the cables or garter at the edges, and keep the stockinette for the rest.

      Please let me know if you have any other questions!

    If I buy this pattern does it have patterns for different size teapots? I want to knit this for a six cup teapot. I don’t mind buying the pattern but only if I will be able to knit the size I require without having to calculate for myself.

      The pattern includes some general directions for how to customize the size. There is no such thing as a “standard” 6 cup teapot – some are taller, some are rounder – so there’s going to be a little bit of customization required for anyone. If you’re concerned, I’d take a look through the projects on Ravelry and see the many different shapes and sizes of teapots. FWIW, my teapot, shown above, is approx. 6 cups.

        Thanks Suzyn for your response I did buy your pattern and I will play with the pattern as I think it is a great cosy for a young couple. My teapot measures 19inches around including the spout so not much difference, the height is the same.:)

    Could not find your “free” pattern for the Purple Shirt of Sex tea cozy. Where is it?

      It was free for about the first year. It’s now $2.50 here:

        Then maybe the “free” offer should come off the site? Sad. I wanted it as a gift this Friday, but no time to order the pattern. :(

        Can you tell me where you’re seeing the word “free” and I’ll remove it. Meanwhile, the Ravelry delivery system is practically instant.
