    The Tea-Rex Tea Cosy knitting pattern to make this great Jurassic park classic, the king of the dinosaurs; tyrannosaurus Rex.

    The Tea-Rex Tea Cosy is a fun tea cosy and kids love it.

    I wanted to design a Dinosaur tea cosy that looked meaty and fearsome, and not cute and playful, so I chose to base the design on a tyrannosaurus. It was tricky getting the eyes right, but by giving him eye lids to reduce the eyeball to a slit makes the tyrannosaurus a sly and evil look.

    The eye is an 18mm safety eye that is actually a cat's style eye with a slit pupil. I designed the tea cosy with a burnt orange colour, but it could be knitted in any colour.

    Overall I think this tea cosy is pretty mean, and he is fun to make. To be honest, if you ask, which is the first dinosaur that people name? Tyrannosaurus, the king of the dinosaurs.

    The dinosaur 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 Tyrannosaurus Rex tea cosy.
