Easy is the operative word and nineteen out of the twenty cosies follow the same shape just about. The designs are quirky, but my favourite is the odd one out shape-wise - the owl, he's adorable. Some of the designs are seasonal, all are appealing. A sure winner in the Twenty to Make series from this publisher. Easy to follow instructions and clear photographs.

As you know I am new to knitting myself so I am really excited about this book! I love the twenty to make range. They are fantastic value for money and always have fun and interesting projects. The patterns are set out well and really easy to follow. They are brilliant patterns for everyone from a beginner to an experienced knitter to try. They are fun and interesting and look fantastic. They would make brilliant gifts and they are fantastic to brighten up any kitchen. The different designs include ones that would be brilliant for different times of the year. Most of my family drink tea using a tea pot. In fact my mum and dad have been known to take their teapot on holiday with them :-).
I will be making a few for different family members for Christmas.
The twenty designs include:
* Bee Hive
* Simple Stripes
* Starts and Moon
* Valentine's Day
* Falling Leaves
I think the only problem you may have with the book
is which tea cosy to make! Really good book, fantastic value & brilliant designs.
