The cowboy tea cosy is an eye-catching tea cosy that makes you feel drawn to this likeable fellow. I love all the old Wild West movies and I wanted to create a traditional American Cowboy.

The cowboy is wearing a black tasselled jacket, and leather chaps with tassels at the sides. He's wearing a red and white checked shirt with a matching red neckerchief. On his head he has the traditional ten gallon hat. His hat is removable which is a nice touch and means that you can reveal his hair. Hanging from his belt he has a pistol and a length of rope.

It's a love tea cosy to knit and although it looks like he's knitted with Fairisle or intarsia it's an illusion. You don't need to be able to ready a chart or work with more than one yarn on a row. I wanted to keep it simple.

The cowboy tea cosy is a bright and cheerful tea cosy that is heartwarming and inviting, perfect for anyone who loves the Wild West.

This is Howdy Cowboys keep their tea hot!

This Tea Cosy:

  • is made from double thickness yarn for extra insulation
  • has a removable hat which can be casually hung on the spout
  • fits a medium sized teapot that holds 6 to 8 cups or 2 pints
