I had promised a cosy years ago but my daughter had never told me the measurements so on a recent visit I surreptitiously measured them and brought the measurements home on a scrap of paper.
In fact the latter had been a sort of trial run for hers as I knew, with the green walls in her kitchen, that was the sort of colour palette she favoured.
Here is a closer look. (Photographs taken just before I packed them up – it was obviously a dull day!)
She really likes them but I think that I may have to take my crochet hook when I go there in a few weeks and make an adjustment to at least one of them.
This is because, since I took the measurements, one of the cafetières got broken and has been replaced (looked about the same size and design though when I was there recently) and I realised that with the other one the handle is actually joined at the bottom not the top! I seemed to have missed that fact when I made the cosy.
Since acrylic yarn stretches with time I have already reinforced the top with some shir elastic so it keeps up.
