The Heritage Steam Engine Tea Cosy knitting pattern is a 7 page knitting pattern with instructions and photos to make this beautiful vintage style steam locomotive.
The old trains of bygone days are so characterful that I wanted to design a steam engine tea cosy that was full of charm and nostalgia.
The steam locomotive is a green engine with a water tank on either side. The train has a chimney funnel and a steam dome, and a small cab. The cab is a pocket, and there is a pattern to knit the Loco Driver in a denim boiler suit. Of course, the train driver could look like someone you know, and you could also knit him a companion to shovel the coal.
The little steam engine has buffers at the front and rear and four wheels and coupling rods.
The Steam Train tea cosy had a lovely tea cosy and great fun to knit and would make a wonderful talking point at any teatime.
The pattern is a 7 page pattern which is easy to follow and has helpful photos to guide you.
The house 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 Vintage Train 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.
