    tea cosy pattern search

    I'm trying to help someone find this pattern, but I can't figure it out. Any ideas?

    "I'm looking for a knitting
    pattern for a traditional tea cosy. It is in two colours and looks
    like a set of pipes joined together is the best way I can describe it.
    Thanks"

    there are a lot of tea cozy patterns out there, but i'm not familiar with one that looks like pipes... the newest Spin-Off magazine has some tea cozy patterns, if you want to look there for a start.

    if you have a more clear description, i might be able to help more, but i can't really picture what she is saying. are the "pipes" vertical? horizontal? hollow? stuffed with filling? are they all the same color? etc.

    I think I know what your on about. Here in England we have a company called Rowan. I have just bought a book of "classic home" knitting patterns and they have a super tea cosy that seems to fit the description you gave. Their web site is; www.ryclassic.com. Hope this helps!

    you have to delete the period after that URL for it to work...

    Rowan is distributed in the US also, BTW.

    I think I know exactly the pattern you mean. I've made several of them over the years. It's from a small Beehive pattern book from at least 35 years ago,maybe longer. I have it and can scan it for you if you'd like it.
