..and wondering if anyone can help me. It must be about 35 years ago that a pattern for a tea cosy with horizontal layered pleats appeared in a Sydney newspaper and I knitted it for Mum at the time. Well the years have moved on and I have moved countries and I no longer have the pattern. I have googled to no avail..the closest I can get to it is an image of one for sale that looks like this
From what I remember I knitted so many rows and then knitted into the back of a row further down to form the horizontal pleats.. I would like to make another one..Why?? Well when I was talking to Mum yesterday when she said that if I was looking for something to make I could make knit her a tea cosy.
I have a tea cosy book so if I can't find a pattern for the layered pleat one I have something to go on with..so today I popped in to the shop and picked up some yellow wool then on to the op shop for 2 pairs of needle at $1 a pair so I am all set to go... if anyone could help me with the pattern I would be very grateful.
