Perfect for hill walkers, the Mountain Rescue Tea Cosy is a wonderful tribute to the rescue teams that keep us safe on our mountainous terrains.
The main part of the tea cosy is knitted in srat stitch, a textured stitch to give the impression of grass. It's always exciting to learn a new stitch. Then, above the treeline, the rocky part of the mountain starts.
I have divided the mountain to give it two peaks to reflect the Mountain rescue logo. On the tops of the mountains I have added snow. To finish the landscape, there are nine spruce trees and a little stream running down from the mountain tops.
On the front of the cosy I have knitted a rescue team member in his hard hat and red jacket and he is being lead by the mountain rescue dog, who has a high vis jacket on.
Perched on the mountaintop is the rescue chopper. The rotors of the helicopter are made with recycled plastic and give the impression that the rotors are actually turning.
The Mountain Rescue 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 it 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 TeaCosyFolk.co.uk
I have had a couple of patterns printed in the Simply Knitting Magazine, which is very exciting.
