Animated Tea Cosy


The Mountain Rescue tea cosy has been inspired by our wonderful mountain rescue teams that help and save people who are lost or hurt on our mountains and hills. What an amazing job the mountain rescue teams do. I bet they know the power a hot cup of tea has!

The main part of the tea cosy is knitted with heathers and wild flowers at the base and then there is a grassy part of the mountain that is knitted in a textures stitch to give the impression of grass. Then, above the tree line, the rocky part of the mountain starts.

I have divided the mountain to give it two peaks to reflect the Mountain rescue logo. On the tops of the mountains I have added snow. I always think mountains look most exciting when they have snow at the top, and that is also when they are most dangerous I expect and so a time more likely to have the rescue teams out.

To finish the landscape, there are nine spruce trees and a little stream running down from the mountain tops.

On the front of the cosy I have knitted a rescue team member in his hard hat and red jacket and he is being lead by the mountain rescue dog, who has a high vis jacket on.

Perched on the mountaintop is the rescue chopper. The rotors of the helicopter are made with recycled plastic and give the impression that the rotors are actually turning.

It's a lovely tea cosy to make and great for anyone who loves hill walking or mountain climbing. And perfect for people who live in mountainous regions.

After walking up hill and down dale you look forward to a cup of tea at journeys end.
