Pattern Description:

This was my first ever tea cosy design, way back in the 1970's - the pattern is now updated and copyrighted - it features comical Ellie the Elephant tea cosy - with her big flappy ears, knotted tail and of course the trunk that sits over the spout!. Fun item great for brightening the kitchen shelf or table and ideal as a window display prop. My usual form of knitting pattern features easy to follow row by row instructions with no complex jargon. Made using double knitting yarn and pattern has 3 size instructions for small medium and large teapots.
