The Purple Teacozy

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 available on Ravelry and LoveKnitting.  Why don’t you make yourself one!?

  2. Hi Suzyn! I totally love this tea cosy and just wanted to let you know we have featured links to it on our tea cosy blog this week 🙂

    Happy knitting


  3. 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!


  4. 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.:)

    • Hi, Mutleyc. I just set up my patterns on loveknitting. Give it 24 hours, then you should be able to purchase the pattern there.

      • I am in UK and have also been trying to purchase this pattern. Ravelry don’t give the option to purchase and I cannot locate it on loveknitting. Any help would be appreciated. Many thanks

      • Darn! I thought I had transferred all my patterns over to loveknitting, but now I can’t find them either. My apologies – I’ll look into it over the weekend.
