The Lovebirds tea cosy was designed for the Simply Knitting Magazine issue 169 which went on sale on the 25th of January 2018.

I was asked to design a tea cosy that was inspired by love and hearts for the February issue, which was obviously for a Valentine knitting project.

Valentine’s day in my mind is a day for lovebirds. It’s a flippant phrase used to describe two people in love; but what if you took it literally? You’d have a two lovestruck love birds, perched on top of a sunset coloured cosy, cosying up to one another, surrounded by love hearts. That was my inspiration for the lovebirds’ tea cosy.

Birds are very in vogue at the moment so a tea cosy featuring these beautiful colourful birds will look fabulous all year through. The birds are easy to make, and with their eyes, posture, and how much you stuff them; you can really give them character.

Cosy up with the lovebirds tea cosy.

  • is made from double thickness yarn for extra insulation
