You could knit a giant sized Garden Snail with this fabulous Tea Cosy Knitting Pattern from TeaCosyFolk, isn't he a whopper?
This tea cosy was inspired by garden snails and it's designed to fit a medium sized teapot, which is very big by garden snail standards.
The snail shell is knitted in two parts and sewn to the main cosy and stuffed, so the tea cosy is very insulated and it give the shell that spiral look. I have made Youtube help videos to show you how to attach the shell and construct the snail. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CH4uGjF6yAI
The snail is on the move and his head and tail are out from the shell and he's looking around. I love his beady eyes on stalks, they are such fun and you can give your snail funny expressions.
The only trail that this snail will leave is a trail of empty tea cups.
The garden snail 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 make your own garden snail 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.
