Flower Basket Tea Cosy

This is an old pattern, from a Paton's bazaar book.  I started it in DK but found it was too thin and floppy, so ended up doubling the yarn and using bigger needles.






I crocheted the flowers and leaves and I think it's turned out pretty well!

One of my favourite things is tea cosies - and tea.

Did you have to adapt the pattern when you doubled the wool?
It looks great.

Cheers
