Rooms on View - knitting
The last bit of work I did for Rooms on View - a coffee pot cosy - being snuck up on. Unfortunately I had to pose it on a red pot for these shots, because that's all I had at home, but I did get hold of a black one for the show. The colours were dictated by the plates we made. The grey is a Shetland wool, the yellow something a bit more machine-washable, but also wool. It's really thick; the stitch pattern involves knitting 5 rows of stocking stitch, then changing colours and picking up stitches from 5 rows down - anyone have a name for this pattern?
There's a gap at the front for the spout, and cool yellow vintage buttons going up the back.
