Week 3 of the Teacosy Crochet Along

Week 3 of the tea cosy Crochet Along is underway, and this week we’re finishing the last part of the Hatter, his hat! The most important part of course, as the Mad Hatter wouldn’t be much of a hatter without a hat.

Using Hayfield Bonus DK Green 886, White 961 and Black 965 for this instalment.

This part of the tea cosy required quite a bit of architectural building skills, and a lot of fiddling with plastic canvas. On the original it does look like a canvas with bigger holes has been used, which means you could sew the plastic to the wool with a darning needle and the wool itself.

Unfortunately the canvas I had available had a much smaller count and I had to try and work it in and sew it with a sewing needle and thread rather than the yarn. You can’t really tell from the outside but the inside is a different story. Just don`t look! I just hope it will be sturdy enough to hold the weight of all the other items that will be going on! Who knows, I might need to get creative with some constructional scaffolding later on.

Here are some photos of my process.

  

 

 

 

 

He’s coming together really well, I think! I guess you could even drop out at this point, he is a brilliant cosy just like this. But I’m definitely continuing. I suspect it will be donuts and jammy dodgers for the next instalment. Let’s get the tea party started!
