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!

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.
