Kate Davies designed this tea cozy as practice for advanced techniques like steeks and vikkel braids. This is a fun way to learn these skills and make a whimsical tea cozy to keep your tea warm this winter!
In Session One we will provisionally cast on our stitches, work the vikkel braid and set up the steek bridges. Students work the body of the tea cozy as homework and we meet again in Session Two to secure and cut the steeks, and unzip the provisional cast on.
