Charming Knit Cup & Saucer Set: Cute, Decorative DIY Guide!

Let’s Dive into Knitting!


Hey there, it’s Rachel! Guess what? I’ve discovered an absolutely stunning knitting pattern on Etsy that I’m itching to share with you! The brains behind this masterpiece is none other than the talented Amalia Samios. From cuddly animals to mystical elves and even juicy fruits, Amalia’s got the magic touch.

Now, I’m totally vibing with her pattern for knitting a complete tea set – a cup, a saucer, a teaspoon, and yes, even a teabag! While I’d love to spill all the beans, out of respect and support for Amalia, I won’t share the full pattern here. But, hey, for just $3.50, you can snag it for yourself. And believe me, this project is a bundle of joy! ✨ Imagine sprinkling your tea parties with these handmade charmers.

Alright, let’s roll up our sleeves and get the tea party started!

Essential Deets:

  • Cups: They’ll be about 5cm (2in) across.
  • Saucers: With a diameter of approximately 9.5cm (3 3/4 in).
  • Spoons: They come in at around 7.5 cm (3in).
  • Teabags: Measuring 4cm x 5cm (1 5/8 in x 2 in).

Materials to Gather:

  • 8-ply wool: Grab 8 skeins in the shades you adore. Maybe make each tea set in a distinct hue? And remember to get some grey/silver for the spoon and classic white and yellow for the teabag.
  • 1 pair of 3.25 mm knitting needles.
  • 1 pair of 3.25 mm double-ended knitting needles.
  • Darning needle and scissors for the finishing touches.

Quick Tips:

The pattern is straightforward, but if you’re a knitting newbie, take it slow. There’s some increasing, decreasing, and maneuvering between stocking stitches and its reverse. When knitting the cup, you’ll begin with 7 stitches, peaking at 43 stitches. That saucer? It starts with 6 and shoots up to 95 stitches. And yes, the cup and saucer are sewn together at the base, giving it a neat finish. The spoon and teabag are faster projects, with just a few stitches and rows to complete. Personally, I’ll be attaching the teaspoon and teabag to the cup – saves me the trouble of searching for them later.

For those wanting an extra flair, consider embroidering your cup or saucer. Need inspiration? There are tons of embroidery designs out there waiting for you.

Other Knitting Tidbits:
