Rhino Tea Cosy Knitting Pattern

The Rhino Tea Cosy Knitting Pattern is a brilliant pattern that is fun to knit to transform your teapot into this amazing rhino.

The main part of the tea cosy is made with a colour change to give the appearance of the dusty ground and the underside of the rhino. His legs and head are knitted separately and sewn on to create this beautiful rhino.

Oh his back is a Cattle Egret, these birds are often seen on rhinos backs. It looks like they are hitching a lift, but they are picking of ticks and catching flies.

This is a lovely tea cosy and the rhino and cattle egret make a great pair to share teatime with and they are fun to knit and add character into.

The Rhino 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!

This product is the knitting pattern only to make your own Rhino 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.
