Description

The British Lop is a very rare British breed of pig with big ears and the British Lop Pig Tea Cosy is fashioned to look like one of these amazing pigs.

With buttercups in the grass all around her, she's standing smelling the air. With her head tilted upwards you can see her eyes beneath her ears.

Pigs trotters divide into two at the 'toe' and I have tried to achieve this look on the pig tea cosy trotters.

The lop pig is what they call a 'white breed' but actually shes a peachy colour, I used Hayfield Bonus DK Flesh Tone for the pig, but she could also be made in black to look like the American Large Black pig breed.

The pig tea cosy fits a Price and Kensington large sized teapot that holds 10 cups. Perfect for when you want a lot of tea.

The pattern is knitted on two pins and is easy to follow and is mainly worked in stocking stitch.

The pattern will be available for digital download as soon as you have completed purchase, so you could start knitting her very soon!

This product is the knitting pattern only; to make your own British Lop Pig tea cosy.
