1.  Copyright: Emi Harrington, please        do not share in any form.
  Working with 6mm needles, and 2       strands of ww yarn (cream color), 
  cast on 10 stitches.


2.    Work in stockinette stitch (k one 
     row, p one row) as follows:
   Knit 2 stitches in the first stitch,        knit across the row knitting 2 
  stitches in the last stitch. 
  (12 stitches)

3.  Purl across the next row.

4.  Repeat step 2 and 3 for 3 more 
    times. (18 stitches)  

5.  Knit 2 stitches in the first 2 
    stitches, knit across the row, knit 2 
    stitches in each of the last 2     
    stitches. (22 stitches)

6.  Purl across the row.

7.  Repeat step 5 and 6 for 3 more 
    times. (34 stitches)

8.  Change to brown color yarn. Work 
    in garter stitch (knit every row).  (I 
    used one strand of tan, and one 
    strand of a multicolor brown. 
   Fun yarn could also be used. )

 Repeat step 5 and 6 for 2 more  
 times, except in step 
6 do not purl, knit 
across the row. 
(42 stitches)


9.  Work in garter  
    stitch (knit every 
    row) for 18 rows.  

10.  Knit the first 15 
      stitches, knit 2 stitches 
      together for times, knit 
      the remaining
     15 stitches.
   (32 stitches).  


Cast off. Thread the yarn end into a needle, sew  bottom corners of the back  together to close and provide an opening for the handle.  


11.  Place the tea cozy over the tea 
      pot, and pin the front snout to 
      fit.  
      Remove from the tea pot,   
   and sew the 
   seam closed  
   with the            yarn end  
   and a yarn 
   needle, up to the point  you 
   marked to fit properly over the 
   snout. (Note: not all of the cream 
  yarn will be connected.)

12.  Place the tea cozy back onto the 
      pot, (see photo below), tuck the 
      top of the snout down into the 
      space where the spout meets the 
      pot, and pin to fit, then remove, 
     and sew a few stitches with same 
     color yarn to keep the shape 
     permanently. Sew buttons on each 
     side for eyes.
