With more and more people doing parachute jumps for charity or just for fun these days, I thought Parachutist Tea Cosy would go down well.
The tea cosy has the parachutist with his legs raised ready for landing. The parachuting character is leaning backwards and his nose is resting on his tummy in an amusing way.
The parachutist is wearing a red jumpsuit and a matching red helmet. I love his black boots that stick up in the air.
His parachute is supported with layers of plastic from a used milk bottle. The parachute billows and looks like it's filled with air. The parachute is knitted in two colour stripes and brings a lot of fun to the cosy.
The arms are knitted with a few short rows at the elbows. Short rows are rows that you turn the work before reaching the last stitch. You'll find videos about short rows on Youtube.
The parachutist tea cosy is perfect for people who like parachuting, skydiving, paragliding, parasailing or who just like dropping in for tea unannounced.
The pattern is knitted on two pins and is easy to follow and is mainly worked in stocking stitch.
The 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; One has to make their own Parachutist tea cosy.
