Whatever kind of animal you like best, you’ll find something appealing to knit in this collection of cozies. In the first chapter, In the Kitchen, there are moose and puffin egg cozies, a charming baby owl tea cozy, and a woolly sheep wrapping herself around a cafetière to keep your coffee hot. Then, At Home, a sleepy fox surrounds a hot water bottle, while a butterfly alights on a vase cover, and there’s even a baby papoose with a bear-style hat. To keep things safe In Your Bag, there are small teddy-bear bottle cozies, big-cat phone cozies, and even an octopus apple cozy to prevent your snack getting bruised. Finally, On your Desk use the panda mug cozy to keep drinks warm while you work, and a cheeky raccoon cover to protect your tablet. There are plenty more charming and original cozies to knit – in fact, there’s a whole zoo of them.
