Tea Cosy and Toy


This is a legendary tea cosy featuring a unicorn. The unicorn has a silvery sparkle coat and a lovely rainbow main and tail. The twisted horn and horseshoes are golden and he looks very magical and very adorable. He also has blue sparkly eyes with eyelashes. Being such a beautiful, elegant creature, I thought I'd throw everything at it and go for over the top magical.

I designed the unicorn tea cosy to be in a leaping or laying type pose, with his legs out before and behind him because I wanted to be able to see horseshoes, which I thought would look pleasing.

I based the horse parts on shire-horses because I love their chunky dimensions and feathery feet.

I do get emails asking if my tea cosies can be turned into toys, and I thought this tea cosy would be lovely as a toy, so it comes as a toy pattern as well as a tea cosy pattern. When you buy the Unicorn Tea Cosy knitting pattern, you will also receive the instructions to make the unicorn toy completely free of charge. The toy requires a slightly less quantity of white and Marriner Sparkle DK wool. (Toy Dimensions: L 30cm & W 10.5cm & H 23cm)

The secret to eternal youth and beauty is to drink from a teapot kept hot by a magical unicorn tea cosy.
