Deconstructing the Reconstruction of a Tea Cosy
"How Tea Cosies Changed the World"
He is made of two berets shapes, each one knitted from the crown out and down and then in and in some more and in some more again and then out a little bit, finished with a rolled lip, turned upside down and folded in on itself to make a double thickness half. The two halves are then stitched together along the crowns, now the base. The rest is all smoke and mirrors and you'll have to BUY THE BOOK to find out all the numbers and tricks that make him sit up so grand.

A tea cosy and pot stand all in one.
Blimey One is clever.
