Knit your own bin man or refuse collector, with this wonderful 6 page Dustman Tea Cosy Knitting Pattern.
The dustman tea cosy is an old fashioned style refuse man before health and safety and before wheelie bins.
He's wearing a flat cap, big black boots and blue dungarees and he's whistling a merry tune as he works.
He has a full bin slung over his shoulder that he is carrying along to empty into the cart. On the top of the bin is a tied up dustbin bag full of rubbish.
It's a great tea cosy to knit and I think we have all found a new appreciation of frontline workers.
The pattern is knitted on two pins and is easy to follow and is mainly worked in 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 Him very soon!
This product is the knitting pattern only; to knit your own Bin man 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 TeaCosyFolk.co.uk
I have had a couple of patterns printed in the Simply Knitting Magazine, which is very exciting.
