I have the tall kind of teapot...I think that technically they might be coffee pots (I've got two, both the same style)...is that ok?  I've never seen a pattern for something that shape.

I think as long as you give good dimensions or maybe a picture to your partner you should be fine. JOIN US!

Yes, I agree, as long as we know what size pot we have to cozy, we can adapt our patterns! Join us!!
