The Virgin Queen has been immortalised in all her regal splendor as a tea cosy and she looks magnificent. Elizabeth I was a long-ruling queen of England with flaming red hair, and the palest of completions.
The main part of the dress in knitted in the vintage style tea cosy pattern to give a really billowy look to the skirts of her dress. At the top she has a flounce. From the flounce upwards the knitting has a diamond pattern and where the diamonds cross is a spot.
Her arms have hanging sleeves that hang down as far as her skirts, and her bodice has a ruff and a standing collar.
Her hair is up in a bun and is adorned with flowers and pearls.
The tea cosy pattern of the Virgin Queen also comes with a pattern for legs and bloomers, in case you'd like to make her as a doll.
The knitting pattern comes with links to video tutorials on Youtube, to help show you the stitches.
The Virgin Queen 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 her very soon!
This product is the knitting pattern only to make your own Virgin Queen 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.
