Animated Tea Cosy


This tea cosy design was based on two pets. I have noticed that very often when a cat household has a cat, that they often get another cat. So I thought the tea cosy with two cats would be popular with cat lovers out there.

The cats have a lovely contemporary look with a simple stylized form. Their safety cats eyes have been embellished with knitted surrounds to give the cats eyes that shapely, eyeliner look.

The cats are sat looking away from one another, I thought this would be nice because it means that the tea cosy doesn't have a front or back.

The main part of the tea cosy is the cats bodies. Each cat body is knitted separately so there is not tricky working from charts, there is just strip work. In a similar fashion the heads are worked individually too and sewn together. This also means that you could make both cats stripy or both cats plain, so they can be tailored to look like any two cats.

The two kitties tea cosy is a quick and easy project to knit and it looks fantastic. the cats have so much character. It's the perfect tea cosy for tea lovers who have two furry friends.

They were the best of cats, they were the worst of cats, but they always kept the teapot hot.
