The Gingerbread House tea cosy looks so sweet it looks good enough to eat! I wonder if a little knitted gingerbread man lives there? The gingerbread house tea cosy will be a great addition to your collection of Christmas ornaments that you can enjoy year after year.

The main part of the house is the main part of the tea cosy, and then the roof is knitted separately. The knitting stitch for the tiles is an easy slip stitch pattern, and it looks fantastic, as if it was decorated with icing.

Hanging down from the sides of the gable ends of the roof are icicles. They make the house look really snow covered. On the top of the roof is a tall chimney that is also snow covered on the top and embellished with a sweetie.

Holding the roof up are four candy cane pillars, that are knitted diagonally. There is a front door and a couple of windows, and then the house is decorated with little sweeties like Smarties.

It is an adorable tea cosy that is festive and fun to make. This jubilant gingerbread house is the perfect way make any teatime merry and bright.

Make teatimes a little bit sweeter with a Gingerbread House tea cosy.
