knitted pineapple tea cosy diy

Whether you're a knitter, a tea-lover, or a sucker for tropical fruits, discovering this stitched-up pineapple tea cosy is likely to have you flicking on the kettle and reaching for a pair of needles.
The fruity beauty, based on a retro pattern from stitching aficionados Patons, was whipped up by crafter Lisa for her blog Tea and Craft. All you need is the ability to knit one and purl two, but if knitting isn't quite your strong point, she's created a very similar pattern for crocheters so you can whip up a cosy regardless of your wool-weaving preferences.
