    • made from double thickness yarn for extra insulation
    • fits a medium sized teapot that holds 6 to 8 cups or 2 pints


    The William Shakespeare Tea Cosy was inspired by Shakespeare and his works.

    I used an iconic portrait picture of William Shakespeare to design his head, and to get the classic hair do, pointed nose and moustache right.

    I imagine most fabrics of the time to be quite heavy and embroidered, so to get this feeling across on the cosy, I have used a texture on the main cosy that puckers the knitting slightly making it look thick and lush.

    In Shakespeare's right hand he is holding a quill, and in his left he is holding a skull, maybe he is writing the story of Hamlet? Around the back of Shakespeare, you will find a little shrew running along.

    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 Shakespeare tea cosy.
