French can-can girl tea cosy

The French Can-Can Girl tea cosy or couvre-théière is a saucy little number; with her hair in a French pleat with white plumes of feathers springing from it. She kicks up her stockinged legs, showing off her petticoats as she dances the Can-can.

This would be the perfect tea cosy for anyone into Vintage or Burlesque style or anyone who loves France.

The Can-can Girl tea cosy knitting pattern is a super project to knit and is easy to follow.

Oh la la! Feeling all français? Well you Can-Can with this beautiful burlesque tea cosy keeping your tea hot.

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.
