This tea cosy is inspired by the Glastonbury festival - crowds of people, the pyramid stage, festival flags and mud. The tea cosy uses bright colours to reflect the atmosphere and energy of the music festival.
The tea cosy is knitted in layers, at the bottom is a thick band of brown representing the masses of mud that Glastonbury is so well known for. Then there is a line of people, with bobbles for their heads. Knowing how flamboyant some festival goers are, some heads have brightly coloured hair. Can you see yourself in the crowd?
There are a few rows of heads and then there is the famous pyramid stage where all the headliners perform. The stage is complete with lighting and the little porch that shelters the performers from the rain.
Amongst the crowds are brightly coloured festival flags that you can imagine are swaying in time to the music.
The Glastonbury festival tea cosy is perfect for anyone who has ever been to the Glastonbury festival, or wanted to go but never quite got there, or for those who dream of going.
The Glastonbury Fes-tea-val tea cosy for Music and Tea lovers.

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.
