Gargoyle Tea Cosy


    The Gargoyle Tea Cosy wouldn't look out of place at Halloween, or in a gothic style house. Ok the Gargoyle tea cosy might well be a Grotesque tea cosy, but I think the name gargoyle is more commonly known, and is instantly recognisable.

    This is an ugly, winged gargoyle with a piggy nose and big ears. He has lion-like legs and a scary expression. His mouth is open wide bearing his fangs.

    He's knitted in all grey with just a small amount of black. I wanted to keep him as stone like as possible.

    The Gargoyle tea cosy is great fun to make and looks frightening for yarn. A great project to have a go at and enjoy.

    The Gargoyle 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 Gargoyle tea cosy.
