Love to crochet? Our wonderful South West supporter Patricia Rockliff is generously sharing these Tea Cosy patterns. Patricia is an active member of the Red Hat Ladies and this amazing group are always so generous with their support and fundraising for Solaris.

Patricia added that this pattern may look complicated but it could be worked in a weekly session.  You would need to have basic crochet skills and she has generously offered that people can feel free to contact her if they want help, or have queries.
