I made 2 x nine round granny squares using Stylectaft Special DK in four colours and a 4.5mm hook.

The Pattern: in US crochet terms

dc = double crochet

sc = single crochet

ch = chain

ss = slip stitch

cluster = 3 dc

Change colour for every round or whenever you’d like to or make the cosy all one colour.

Chain 5, join with a slip stitch to the first chain to form a ring.

Round 1: working stitches into the ring, (sc, ch 2) this counts as the first dc now and throughout, 2 dc, ch 3, [3 dc, ch 3] 3 times, join with a ss to top of first dc of the round. Fasten off.

Round 2: join new colour to any ch3-space, sc, ch 2, [skip 3 dc, (3dc, ch3, 3 dc) in next ch3-space] 3 times, skip 3 dc, (3 dc, ch 3, 2 dc) in next ch3-space, ss to top of first dc of the round. Fasten off.

Round 3: join new colour to any ch3-space, sc, ch 2, [skip 3 dc, 3 dc in gap between clusters, skip 3 dc, (3 dc, ch 3, 3dc) in corner ch3-space] 3 times, skip 3 dc, 3 dc in gap between clusters, skip 3 dc, (3dc, ch3, 2dc) in corner ch3-space, ss to top of first dc of the round. Fasten off

Rounds 4 – 9: continue in the same pattern as established in Round 3 by working 3 dc in the gap between each cluster and (3 dc, ch 3, 3 dc) into each corner ch3-space.

Round 10: join yarn in any corner ch3-space. [3 sc in corner space, sc in top of each sc across to next ch3-space] 4 times, join with a ss in top of first sc of the round. Fasten off

Join the two squares at the sides by crocheting or sewing together, leaving a gap for the spout and handle. 🧡

make a simple twisted cord using 3 strands of yarn cut to around a metre long, twist together then double over so it twists back on itself, tie a knot at each end to secure.🧡
