Christmas Gnome Tea Cosy

Christmas gnomes are so popular and the Christmas Gnome Tea Cosy knitting pattern makes a wonderful Christmas gnome that looks amazing and is perfect for a magical Christmas.

The main part of the tea cosy is the body of the gnome which you can hardly see for frosty looking hair. He has a big red hat flopped on his head so that only his big potato shaped nose is peeping out. He's wearing red wellingtons and red mittens and he's holding a Christmas star.

The hat has a lovely Fair Isle design on it of snowflakes, giving a wintery feel. The stars are knitted using short rows, you can find videos of how to do this on Youtube.

The Christmas Gnome is a lovely tea cosy to knit and he look adorable. He's Christmas chic and perfect for those people who love Nordic Gnomes.

The knitting pattern uses Stylecraft Special DK and King Cole Tinsel Chunky for the hair. The tea cosy is knitted with double thickness yarn to keep the teapot and the tea really hot.

The Christmas Gnome tea cosy fits a medium sized tea pot that covers a Teapot that holds 6 to 8 cups or 2 pints.

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

This product is the knitting pattern only to make your own Christmas Gnome tea cosy.

I design and knit unique tea cosies. I really love designing exciting and unusual tea cosies, its great fun and people don’t mind having an over the top tea cosy. Plus they are a great talking point at tea time and make for brilliant knitting projects.

I have quite a following with regular customers who regularly buy my latest designs from my website

I have had a couple of patterns printed in the Simply Knitting Magazine, which is very exciting.
