Mrs. Hudson’s Tea Cozy–Knitting Pattern


This pattern was designed in honor of Mrs. Hudson, Sherlock’s long-suffering housekeeper. Think of the times that meals must have gone untouched, bread grew stale, or the teapot cold. She bore much and received little in return. Her home was overrun by countless strangers, there was that incident of the indoor target practice, and of course, the delayed or missed meals. So, to honor the patient Mrs. Hudson, and all those who keep the teapot warm while waiting for their loved ones, here is Mrs. Hudson’s Tea Cozy.

Hi all! I’m Faith, and I love to knit! That hobby turned into a love of designing. My goal is to design patterns that are fun and easy to knit, even with all the distractions of life going on around you. So, grab a cup of your favorite beverage and have a look around. I’m so glad you stopped by.

More about Distracted Knits:
Faith Schmidt designs under the name DistractedKnits for a very good reason. With nine children, some grown and some still at home, there’s always something going on! This has led her to design patterns that are interesting to knit but are also easy to memorize and “read”, in the case of one of those all-to-frequent interruptions.
