Crochet a cosy for your phone, your teapot, your laptop, your favourite books, your passport and more! Cover all your most precious items with cute and colourful crochet, and then why not make something for all your friends too? Start with simple vase cosies to brighten up your mantelpiece, keep your tablet or e-reader safe with a wave-patterned striped cosy, then move on to more complex designs such as the adorable crocheted flower tea cosy, the pretty lace tealight covers, and the soft and warm hot water bottle cover. Expert crafter Nicki Trench, a crochet teacher and author with over 20 years' experience, has designed a series of patterns that will guide you through making these beautiful projects incorporating a wide range of crochet techniques. There is a comprehensive techniques section that explains all the stitches with clear artworks and instructions, followed by three chapters packed with patterns that will delight and inspire you.
