Materials you’ll need:

  • Worsted weight yarn in your desired color
  • Crochet hook suitable for your yarn
  • Scissors
  • Tapestry needle for weaving in ends
  • Buttons or closures (optional)


  1. Gauge: Start by creating a gauge swatch. Crochet a small square using your chosen stitch pattern to determine how many stitches and rows you need to achieve the desired size. Measure the gauge and adjust your hook size if necessary.
  2. Base:
    • Chain the desired number of stitches to achieve the width of your tea cozy base. The exact number of chains will depend on your gauge and the size of your teapot.
    • Row 1: Starting in the second chain from the hook, work your chosen stitch pattern across. Turn your work.
    • Repeat Row 1 until the base is wide enough to cover the bottom of your teapot. This will depend on your measurements.
  3. Sides:
    • Once the base is the desired width, continue working in your chosen stitch pattern to create the sides of the tea cozy.
    • Work in rounds or rows, depending on your preferred construction method.
    • Continue crocheting until the tea cozy reaches the desired height to cover your teapot. This will depend on your measurements.
  4. Handle and Spout Openings:
    • To create openings for the teapot handle and spout, fold your work in half horizontally. Determine the location of the handle and spout on the folded edge.
    • Starting from the marked point of the handle, create a chain of the desired length for the handle opening.
    • Starting from the marked point of the spout, create a chain of the desired length for the spout opening.
    • Join the chains to the nearest points on the opposite side of the fold, creating loops for the handle and spout openings.
  5. Finishing:
    • Once you’ve completed the main body of the tea cozy, fasten off the yarn, leaving a long tail for sewing.
    • Fold the tea cozy in half, aligning the sides, and sew the side seam using the tail and a tapestry needle.
    • Weave in any loose ends with a tapestry needle.

    Optional: You can add buttons or closures to the tea cozy for a snug fit and easy access to the teapot. Sew buttons to one side of the opening and create corresponding buttonholes on the other side.
