New Pattern: Bertha

Not really a new pattern, but completely re-written and tech edited. This pattern now includes a schematic, chart, and updated photos.

BERTHA teapot and French press cozy by Allison O'Mahony at

Bertha is a rectangular buttoned cozy embellished with an oversized, lopsided cable around the middle and a garter stitch border. Though originally designed for a cylindrical teapot with a high spout, the shape is perfect for a French press.

Approximately 46 m/50 yards worsted weight yarn
Shown in Spud & Chloe Sweater (55% Wool, 45% Cotton; 160 yards/100 g) in the Grape Jelly colourway

Three 18 mm (23/32”) buttons

One 5 mm/US 8 circular needle* or set of straight needles (or size needed to obtain gauge)
Cable length is not terribly important as this project is knit flat.

16 stitches & 20 rows = 10 cm/4” in stockinette stitch, after blocking

One size; sample shown on a teapot with a circumference of 30.5 cm/12” with 2.5 cm/1” negative ease

Finished Dimensions
28 cm x 11.5 cm (11” x 4.5”), after blocking

Additional Tools
Cable needle, stitch marker, blunt tapestry needle, blocking pins

Skill Level
1 out of 5

  1. Hi Allison, I’m responding to your question on my blog yesterday (YarnAlong). The pattern for the hats is my own, I’m trying to find time to write it up and put it on Ravelry! I love your blog, I see you are a budding designer too! :)
