Last summer I was asked to take part in the Simply Crochet Magazine Christmas designer challenge. In the challenge, the crochet designers are given the same task and the same yarn. You can see many of their former challenges on Instagram. The challenge here was to design and make a Christmas teapot cosy.
I was excited to take part! I sent them four different sketches, and they selected this teapot cosy with pockets on each side and a large bow. In the warmest part of the summer, I was crocheting Christmas items!

Here’s the original sketch. I’m not actually used to drawing anything. Normally when I design new things, I just see the item in my head and I write down some notes, maybe with a few drawn lines.
