Train Guard Tea Cosy Knitting Pattern

The Train Guard Tea Cosy knitting pattern was inspired by visits to heritage line and old victorian train stations. The train guard tea cosy is a design dedicated to train guards.

The stout train guard is wearing a black suit and he is wearing big boots. On his head he is wearing a cap with gilt edging and a green badge.

In his hands he has the train guard tools of the trade, a green flag and a whistle. His cheeks are puffed up as if he's about to blow the whistle.

Around the back of him he has a post sack for of letters and parcels for the Royal Mail. The mail bag has a minimal amount of Fair Isle knitting on it to spell out MAIL.

He's a lovely tea cosy, full of nostalgia of a bygone time when steam trains were mesmerising. He'd be perfect for any steam train enthusiast.

The tea cosy is knitted with double thickness yarn to keep the teapot and the tea really hot.

The Train Guard 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, very soon!

This product is the knitting pattern only to make your own Train Guard 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.
