Here it is as promised.
My earlier cafetière cosies were made very quickly just to try out basic ripple, granny stripe and adding beads. This time I took more time and more care with the making. I decided to use buttons to join at the back as I thought that would be neater.
Here are some more photos.
No tutorial but just a recap from the previous post:-
I used this pattern
From Jan Eaton’s “200 Ripple Stitch Patterns”
Using colours I had available that might fit with a sea and sand colour scheme.
I thought that I had measured the height correctly but in fact when I held it against the cafetière, I realised it was too tall and undid the top double ripple and used the yarn to work a double crochet (UK) border to join it, fit over the handle and contain buttonholes for the three buttons.
I am very pleased with it. I like the colours, it is thicker than the previous one thus better for insulation (and better, in my opinion, for a blanket).
I am pleased with the photos too. With low winter light I generally have problems but the pictures of the finished cosy were taken at 1/13 and they still came out nicely in focus without shake and good colour. I was quite amazed. 🙂
