Coral Reef Tea Cosy

From the beginning, when I first became interested in freeform crochet, Coral forms & textures became inescapable inspiration.

The 4th Tea Cosy, of a number I’ve been working on these past months. This is the last one of the collection. I hope you’ve enjoyed these posts & they’ve inspired you with ideas to experiment & have a go too.
