Meerkat Tea Cosy Knitting Pattern

The perfect tea cosy for people who love meerkats and hot cups of tea; the meerkat tea cosy has it all.

The main part of the tea cosy is knitted to look like the meerkats burrow with a sandy, grassy terrain with rocky boulders. The ten meerkats are scattered about the cosy, all looking alert and going about their business.

The tea cosy is knitted with double thickness yarn to keep the teapot and the tea really hot.

The meerkat tea cosy fits a medium sized tea pot 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 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.
