Keep your tea hot in style with this quick-to-knit cozy. The double-thick base helps protect your tabletop and, if desired, can hold a small sachet; the heat of the tea will release the scent. The handle and spout are left exposed so you''re free to pour a second cup without undressing the pot!

Cords (Make 2)
Using dpns, CO 3 sts. Work I-cord for 16 inches (40cm). BO all sts.
Tie one end of one cord into an overhand knot. Make a loop at end of second cord, just large enough for knot to fit through. Use yarn tail at end of cord to sew loop securely. Weave in rem ends.

NOTES:
If desired, 0.25 inch ribbon can be used in place of knitted cords. Instead of tying a knot, sew a button to end of one ribbon.
The Fair Isle version uses twisted cords made with three strands of yarn and a single button rather than i-cord ties. Cut three 1-yard lengths of yarn and tie one end to a fixed object. Twist the other end until the cord kinks up on itself. Holding all 6 yarn ends together, allow the cord to twist around itself along its length. Knot the loose ends. Make second cord as first, sliding a button to the center of the length of yarn before twisting.

Spice sachet
Cut two circles of fabric, the same size as the base pieces. Place fabric circles right sides together and, using a half-inch seam allowance, sew circles together around perimeter, leaving a small opening (about 1.5 or 2 inches).
Turn right side out. Fill loosely with whole cloves, lavender blossoms, or other desired herbs or spices. Do not overfill, or teapot will not sit flat. Sew sachet closed and place inside pocket in bottom of cozy.

 
FINISHING

Weave in rem ends.
The edges of each side with shaping and eyelets near the bottom, sit next to the teapot handle. The straight edges of each side sit next to the spout.
Thread cords through eyelets at top of each side, using photo as a guide, so that the loop and knot ends of the cords are at the "spout" edge of each side.
To dress your teapot, set it on the base and bring the two sides up. "Button" the knot through the loop above the spout, snug up the cords, thread ends through the lower eyelets under the handle and tie.
Personalize your cozy with different pattern sts or colorwork. Use up odds and ends of yarn.
