Some people might find teatimes a bit scary with TeaCosyFolk's Octopus Tea Cosy guarding the teapot. The octopus tea cosy knitting pattern is gobsmacking good.
He's knitted in just two shades of Stylecraft Special DK; Spice and Saffron. Whilst the main part of the cosy is knitted with double thickness yarn to keep the teapot really hot, the rest of the octopus is knitted with a single strand on 4.0mm knitting needles.
What is great is that you can get really creative with the legs and sew them into any position, but I think they look amazing curled up.
It's a 4 page knitting pattern that is easy to follow and mainly worked in stocking stitch with a few bobbles to create tentacle suckers. There is a help video on YouTube to knit the bobbles, you can find it here https://youtu.be/sPB7pxRPnuw
The Octopus 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 him very soon!
This product is the knitting pattern only to make your own Octopus 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.
