Seems strange I want to add a hole to my knitting, when I first started, I had way too many. However, this is a different sort of hole.
Here's a pattern for a tea cozy that looks like an elephant. I thought it was really cute. She did it in two halves, then sewed them together, leaving holes for the handle and spout of the teapot.
But that made me wonder if this could be done in the round, losing the seam. The only real obstacle I can see is how to leave the holes for handle and spout. (Think of the little teapot, short and stout, "This is my handle, this is my spout.")
I found how to make a buttonhole on knittinghelp.com, but that's lateral. This needs to be vertical. Is this possible? And does anyone know how to do it?
