Mayflower Pilgrims Tea Cosy

The Mayflower Pilgrims Tea Cosy is a tea cosy dedicated to Thanksgiving and the pilgrims that arrived in America in 1640.

The Mayflower pilgrims tea cosy depicts a couple and their baby. The husband is helping steady his wife as they walk along after their long and treacherous journey. They are dressed in 1600 style dress, the man in a tall hat and britches and long dress on the lady.

Around the back of the tea cosy is a wild turkey, I thought the turkey was a nice connection from the past to present day and the Thanksgiving turkeys that are enjoyed each year.

The man, lady and baby could easily be made as dolls. If you were to knit a the pattern for the legs in white with brown shoes, they could be sew to the underside of the center top of the skirt.

Mayflower Pilgrims tea cosy is a lovey tea cosy and is really detailed and perfect for the anniversary of the Mayflower's voyage.

The Mayflower Pilgrims 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 them very soon!

This product is the knitting pattern only to make your own Thanksgiving 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

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