Hospital Patient Tea Cosy

The Hospital Patient Tea Cosy is a fun tea cosy of a sick hospital patient who is feeling worse for wear. This humorous tea cosy of a person with multiple injuries, broken arm, a leg in cast using a crutch to walk, a bandaged head, a high temperature and he's wearing an operating gown as well, and we all know the problems of NHS hospital gowns.

The hospital patient tea cosy fits a medium sized tea pot that covers a Teapot that holds 6 to 8 cups of tea.

The pattern will be available for digital download as soon as you have completed purchase, so you could start knitting 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

I have had a couple of patterns printed in the Simply Knitting Magazine, which is very exciting.
