This quirky pattern from Anke Klempner adds a playful touch to a basic knit tea cozy, transforming teapots into adorable snail characters.
The spout and the rotund shape from the body of the teapot offer perfect snail-like features to build upon and essentially, what really gives the design some major character are the whimsical knit snail eyes, created from just an i-cord and a pipe cleaner.
Anke Klempner sells the base patterns for these knit tea cozies on the online knitting community Ravelry and encourages people to let their imaginations run wild, since there are endless possibilities for the varieties of snails that can be made. With these designs, you can sip your tea as slowly as a snail, without having to worry at all about your tea going cold.
