Sumo Wrestler Tea Cosy Knitting Pattern

Watching Sumo wrestling is just amazing and that is what inspired me to create the Sumo Wrestler Tea Cosy Knitting Pattern. The sumo is a chunky wrestler and his size and shape is perfect for a tea cosy.

The sumo tea cosy is in a squat position that the wrestlers start in before a match. Because he is squatting his knees are bent out and his tummy is overhanging his mawashi slightly.

Around the back, his buttocks are exposed as you'd expect and the mawashi is tied in a big knot.

What an unusual knitting project, full of interesting parts to know and great detail.

The Sumo 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 Japanese Sumo 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

I have had a couple of patterns printed in the Simply Knitting Magazine, which is very exciting.
