Morris Dancer Tea Cosy Knitting Pattern

The Morris Dancer Tea Cosy Knitting Pattern was inspired by summer, festivals and brightly coloured Morris men.

The Morris Dancer Tea Cosy could be knitted in any colours you chose, so he could be personalized to look like someone you know.

The Morris dancer tea cosy has all the bells and ribbons. He's sporting a green baldric as he dances with his stick and hankie. His hat is removable revealing the Morris mans head and hair. I designed the Morris dancer tea cosy to be an older gentleman with grey hair and a moustache.

The Morris dancer 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 him 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.
