TeaCosyFolk's Auld Lang Syne Tea Cosy Knitting Pattern
The Auld Lang Syne Tea Cosy Knitting Pattern of course, was inspired by the very famous poem by Robert Burns that most people will sing on New Years Eve on the strike of midnight.
The finished cosy has a wonderfully Scottish feel, with the four figures dressed in kilts. They are holding hands and raucously singing Auld Lang Syne around the teapot and having a jolly time.
The main part of the cosy is black, I thought this would represent a lump of coal, the traditional gift of people first footing to bring luck and prosperity in the coming year to the household.
It's a great tea cosy and it's so unusual to have a tea cosy that celebrates the new year. The tea cosy is also great for Burn's night later on in January.
The tea cosy fits a medium sized tea pot that covers a Teapot that holds 6 to 8 cups.
The pattern will be available for digital download as soon as you have completed purchase, so you could start knitting very soon!
This product is the knitting pattern only to make your own Auld Lang Syne 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.
