Inspired by World Naked Gardening Day, I designed the Naked Gardener Tea Cosy knitting pattern. What a talking point this tea cosy would make at teatime, a bit naughty and a lot of fun. Perfect for keen gardeners.
The naked gardener is reaching over a little bush, a hebe perhaps and she chopping off some unruly leaves with her shears. So it wasn't full frontal nudity, I thought if she were leaning over the bush that most of her would be hidden.
The bush is knitted in a lovely lace pattern so that you can see the teapot beneath. It gives the bush a lovely texture.
In front of the bush is a watering can. It's one of those vintage style watering cans made from a silver coloured metal.
For most people I guess naked gardening isn't their thing, but if outrageous tea cosies that amuse and get people talking are your thing, you'll love the naked gardener tea cosy.
The Naked Gardener 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 her very soon!
This product is the knitting pattern only to make your own Naked Gardener 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.
