Animated Tea Cosy


The Red Arrows tea cosy was designed for the Simply Knitting Magazine issue 212 which goes on sale on the 25th May 2021.

This tea cosy is a celebration of the Red Arrows, the United Kingdom's Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team. The tea cosy has two hawk fast-jets on it, on either side of the cosy.

The Red Arrows of course are excellent pilots, but what is so captivating is the wonderful manoeuvres they perform and the amazing patterns and shapes their smoke trails leave in the sky.

For me, the Red Arrows are a big part of Summer because they visit Air Shows to perform their displays. It's also when they perhaps make an appearance for the Queen's birthday celebrations which is in June.

This tea cosy is such fun to make, and the little hawks are enchanting. Knitted in Stylecraft Special DK it's soft and insulating.

The Red Arrows stir the hearts of the Nation and hot pots of tea.

This Tea Cosy:

  • is made from double thickness yarn for extra insulation
  • fits a medium sized teapot that holds 6 to 8 cups or 2 pints
