Please help me with my tea cosy!
Hello, I am quite a new knitter and am making my first tea cosy. I am using straight needles and am knitting two sides and will stitch them up at the end. I am nearing the end of my first side and have successfully decreased towards the top and am down to about 10 stitches. What next?! I have lost my pattern.... Do I cast off, or do I keep decreasing, or do something else? Thanks for your help - MUCH appreciated!

Is there supposed to be an opening on the top or do you want it closed all the way around? You can just bind off the 10 and sew up the sides if you want it closed, or leave the top open.

www.knittingpatterncentral.com has tea cozy patterns--maybe you can find one similar to the one you are making.

Hello! Thanks so much. Yes, I want to close up the top and then put a pompom there once I've sewn up the sides. So I think I'll try binding off as you suggest. Thank you for your help!
