Animated Tea Cosy


The Skier Tea Cosy was designed for the Let's Knit Magazine issue 151 which went on sale on the 24th October 2019.

The Skier tea cosy is a woolly spectacular celebrating the wonderful wintery sport of Skiing.

The skiing tea cosy depicts a podgey person in their snowsuit speed skiing. They are bent over in that stance which is great for speed - bottoms out and head down which give the tea cosy its comic appeal.

The tea cosy is knitted in colourful shades of Stylecraft Special DK and the main cosy has a small design of black intarsia which is across four rows. Skiers always have funky outfits, so I wanted to create something bright and striking for this skier to wear. You can of course knit the snowsuit in any colours you like.

The skiers goggles are made from a clear plastic soda bottle. and the goggles can be up on the head or over the eyes.

The snow sticks and skis are knitted and stiffened with more plastic soda bottle so that the knitting holds its shape.

The pom pom hat is really cute and matches the rest of the skiing gear. The tiny pom pom for the top is made on a fork.

It's a cute and amusing tea cosy that is perfect for people who love skiing and would make a lovely wintery or Christmassy tea cosy.

Sporty, Christmassy and makes you smile, this tea cosy has it all!
