I love a bit of old and traditional and the Greenhouse Tea Cosy knitting pattern is a tea cosy that was designed to look like a Victorian glasshouse.
The main part of the tea cosy forms the greenhouse, and I have used Stylecraft Silver for the glass and white for the wooden structure.
I thought it would be fun to have an oversized tomato growing out of the greenhouse ventilation window. Who wouldn't want to wake up to find a prize winning tomato?
Also outside the greenhouse is a watering can, a few buttercups and a sunflower in a plant pot. They add interest from all views and they are things that tend to be found hanging around the greenhouse.
We're all more nature aware these days and I thought it would be lovely to add a little bit of wildlife to the tea cosy, so I made a little hedgehog. He's hiding around the side and he's looking for tasty slugs.
There is a help video on Youtube for the tricky bits - the link is included in the knitting pattern.
The gardening inspired Greenhouse 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 it very soon!
This product is the knitting pattern only to make your own Greenhouse 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.
