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. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit purl increase decrease cast on cast off

Sold by

I love to knit - and crochet - and have designed knitting patterns for more than 40 years now...... I have two online stores that sell my handmade products, Bumblebabys is my love of all things baby and reborn - patterns, nappy cakes, baby shower gifts and any new ideas I create. I also own Tea Cosy World (speaks for itself really lol) and my first ever published book was 100 Tea Cosy Designs - this now available to buy from my craftsy store as a pdf. download and features a great range of tea cosies, phone covers, mug hugs, egg cosies etc. Everything from a Frozen theme Christmas Tree to my first ever cosy design, Ellie the Elephant.... all with simple row by row instructions -which is a feature of all my knitting and crochet patterns as I like to make them suitable even for those who have little or no experience. As ive said I am a full time carer to my OH, a mum to 4 grown up children and Nanna to a rather large brood (see my profile photo lol) so no shortage of those to try out my patterns on. Hope you will enjoy wandering through the designs in my store. PAM X
