With Halloween just around the corner, this wonderful tea cosy is the perfect addition to any spooky tea parties you might be thinking of hosting.
You can knit it for yourself or take it to work during Halloween week to cheer up the staff room.
And if you’re not a tea drinker, we’ve even provided details on how to turn this tea cosy into a playful soft toy.
Attach your cat at the base of the cosy, so its paws are on the dress edge.
The cat’s tail, frog’s legs and hat brim are all blocked before assembly.
Fold the second frog’s legs under him and attach him under the spout.
Embroider a pentangle – or a spooky symbol of your choice – on the book’s cover and attach under the witch’s fingers.
Once you’ve made the hair, pin it to the back of the head and sew in place securely.
The witch’s nose is knitted separately then sewn to the middle of the face.
