LoveCrafts is the online home for makers worldwide and what goes better with a bit of crafting than a cup of tea?

We are delighted that for this year’s Big Tea Cosy, Merion Willis, LoveCrafts Craft Editor and Debbie Bliss, knitwear designer extraordinaire, will be hosting a special Knit and Natter event on Zoom to raise vital funds for Breast Cancer Haven.

Join Merion and Debbie to discuss the health benefits of crafting and get started with Debbie's gorgeous hot water bottle cover pattern, exclusive to LoveCrafts. We all love a hottie, and they are especially useful if you're not feeling well. Debbie and Merion will talk you through the elements of how to get started, and talk about the techniques involved in the pattern - slip stitches and mosaic knitting.

You can participate in one of three ways:

1) Buy the hot water bottle pattern here, along with the recommended yarn (Two 50g balls of Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran in Crimson (54) (A), One ball in Ecru 101 (B), Oddments of Denim (205) (C)) and needles in if you need them (Pair of 5mm (US 8) needles)in advance and get started with us (previous knitting experience is recommended).

2) Buy one of the other incredible designs that support Breast Cancer Haven and bring it along to work on.

3) Work on a project of your own.

Finally, of course, we recommend that you also bringing along a cup of tea to make the most of this lovely hour for cosy crafting.
