The Guy Fawkes tea cosy was designed for the Simply Knitting Magazine issue 216 which went on sale on the 9th September 2021.

I love the story of the gunpowder plot to blow up King James and the houses of parliament. Apparently they had 36 barrels of gunpowder which they said was enough to blast the King all the way back to Scotland.

This tea cosy features just one of those gunpowder barrels, and Guy Fawkes is stood next to it and he has lit the fuse, you can see the sparks.

It's been a long tradition to make a Guy for the bonfire for bonfire night, but this knitted Guy is lovely to knit and keep to enjoy, year after year.

Remember, Remember, the 5th of November!

This Tea Cosy:

  • is made from double thickness yarn for extra insulation
