I started with easy teapot cosy from a pattern on raverly with sirdar click chunky in the multi colour yarn,

side view

then did another one with mirage and leftovers of sirdar click green
Green Meany

Then I moved onto the Tea Mitten by Elisabeth Kleven and modified the pattern, to ac comadate my blob/bobble pattern, the inside looks like a waffle, these two are one pot cosy's
Stain Glass

Cream Tea

Lastly 4 cup pot, which actually was the First one I made

Hope u like them.. once I get stuck on an idea I really like to make a few for variations on that theme

My goodness! They're all awesome! How long do they take to make?

Well once I got the pattern down.. the one pot cream tea took about 3 evenings, starting from 8pm-11pm.

oh, could you post where u got the patterns? i have been wanting to do this since.. forever. Could you just do one to measure? I was thinking of crochet as well but it may be too holey.  I'm not that good at kitting yet.... and I don't have circular needles, could this be done with straight and then put together?

I did them on dpns.. as I always get the sts twisted on circs..lol.. Yep u could defo do one crochet'd.
I'd just like to say this is a spur of the moment idea....
If it were me.. I'd try crochet in the round for the bottom part and then when u get to the spout and handle, cut the yarn, turn and work rows until u get to the top of the pot, above the spout and handle, do the same on the other side and then join them back in the round. Make a long rectangle and stitch it to the leftside of the teapot.. and then on the right add a popper/clasp/velcro... Then you could either leave it like that or in the round make a spout cover.. long wide tube of crochet, wide at the base and then slightly tapered to the end, whipstitch it onto the base of the spout and I think that would be ok. I hope that helps I would do a test run in a light colour so u can count ur sts as u go... !
As for Knitting there are quite a few idea's at knittingpatterncentral.com.

Good Luck

lol, I don't know how to use dpns either... so I guess I gotta learn! Thanks so much for the ideas! I am definitely going to have some fun with this, and thanks for the link as well! They look amazing, BTW.
