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