Description

The Jubilee Street Party tea cosy was designed for the Simply Knitting Magazine issue 224 which went on sale on the 29th April 2022.

I was super excited to be invited to design a tea cosy that celebrated the Queen's 70th Jubilee. There's nothing better than a big tea party, and bygone street parties were my inspiration for this design.

The tea cosy features a bunting lined street of Victorian town houses. And above the roof tops is the crown in it's full glory.

What I love about the houses is that you can knit the doors to be the colours of your neighbours front doors and make it look like your own street.

The crown has a bit of luxury with the King Cole Cuddles Chunky White for the crown's ermine at the bottom. The arches of the arms are knitted in a holey pattern to give the appearance of sculpted precious metal.

The bunting is knitted in red, white and blue for a touch of patriotism. To get the flags nice and flat, I pinned the bunting out with a pin at each flag tip and heated with a hairdryer and allowed to cool before removing the pins. That's the secret to non-curly flags.

It's a lovely commemorative tea cosy that looks amazing and is also great fun to use for royal celebrations.

Perfect for people who love the Queen and want to raise a cup to her health.
