Description

The Christmas Steam Train Tea Cosy Knitting Pattern is the perfect Christmas tea cosy for train enthusiasts.

This tea cosy has a little stream train weaving its way through frozen trees. The trees are knitted with a sparkly yarn to give them that frozen, frosted look.

The Christmas express steam train runs around the bottom of the cosy. There is one locomotive with smoke coming out from the chimney and behind it's pulling three carriages. The wheels of the train are small black buttons.

There is a very small amount of intarsia work on the carriages and train cab, but it's very limited and is just to create the windows. Easy enough for a beginner to have a try at.

There are a few stars or snowflakes in the frosty blue sky that are embroidered on with sparkly yarn and give the cosy an extra touch of frostiness.

It's a lovely tea cosy to knit and is a little bit challenging, making an extra special Christmas tea cosy.

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

The tea cosy fits a medium sized teapot 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 it very soon!

This product is the knitting pattern only; to knit your own Christmas Steam Train tea cosy.
