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.
