The Christmas Mistletoe Mouse pint sized tea cosy was designed for the Simply Knitting Magazine issue 218 which went on sale on the 2nd November 2021.

This adorable Christmas tea cosy was inspired by small teapots and mice. I think mice are associated with Christmas because they are mentioned in 'T'was the night before Christmas', and Beatrix Potter features sewing mice in her Christmas story about the Tailor of Gloucester. A mouse was the perfect animal to cover a small teapot.

This little mouse has a Christmas present for his sweetheart. It's wrapped up with a bow. He's hoping to have a Christmas kiss under the mistletoe that he is holding above his head with his tail. I love his little 'hands' holding the present.

The mistletoe mouse tea cosy fits a mini sized tea pot that holds enough tea for one, so the cosy would make a wonderful Christmas present.

Not a creature was stirring not even a mouse. Well maybe this mouse was.

This Tea Cosy:

  • is made from double thickness yarn for extra insulation
  • fits a small sized teapot that holds 2 cups or 1 pint
