The Mexican Redknee Tarantula Tea Cosy Knitting Pattern is a tea cosy for spider lovers.
The main body of the tarantula is the actual tea cosy. Then the abdomen and the legs are knitted and attached to the main cosy.
When you think of a tarantula, I think that we probably image the black and orange one, which is the Mexican Redkee tarantula. So I chose to base the tea cosy on that species, and the colours are appropriate for Halloween and autumn. I thought the lovely orangey knees would look more effective than a plain black house spider.
His legs are knitted and stuffed and then drawn up at intervals to add shaping and structural support, so that the legs stand in an arched shape.
TeaCosyFolk's Tarantula tea cosy fits a medium sized tea pot that covers a Teapot that holds 6 to 8 cups or 2 pints.
The Tarantula tea cosy knitting pattern will be available for digital download as soon as you have completed purchase, so you could start knitting him very soon!
This product is the knitting pattern only to make your own Tarantula 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.
