It's Tea Time! 8 Knitted Tea Cozy Patterns

Ah, tea time! I relish those morning cups of tea and coffee before the insanity of the work day begins. Now what makes that coffee and tea even more enjoyable? Why, knitted tea cozy patterns, of course! Since my cabinet can't hold any more mugs, I've recently ditched my obsession with secondhand coffee mugs in favor of knitted tea cozy patterns to brighten up teapots and mugs. With knitted tea cozies, I can switch up the look of my tea and coffee mugs.

Tea time is also a great opportunity to reflect and recharge your creative energy throughout the day. Even businessman  Richard Branson uses tea time to recharge ! Pair these pretty patterns, including a few knitted coffee cozy patterns, with your next tea time to spark even more creativity.

Chocolate cupcake tea cozy

Not a fan of knitting in the round? This tea cozy has two versions. One is knit flat, while the other one is knit seamless in the round. Designer  Design Studio  says the name of the tea cozy was inspired by all the chocolate cupcakes consumed during knitting workshops. Whipping up a batch of chocolate cupcakes sounds like a great idea to me!
