Animated Tea Cosy


When you think of a Court Jester you think of a clown making you laugh with ridiculous antics and probably not a tea cosy. But the Court Jester tea cosy is such a happy and colourful tea cosy, that is cute with tinkling bells, what's not to love?

The Court Jester is sitting, with his big curled up shoes out in front of him. Around his middle he is adorned with a zigzagging frill, that matches his collar and cuffs. On his head he has a traditional fools hat, knitted in three colours with bells at the tips.

In his hand he is holding a scepter of a miniature jester, that looks just like the jester tea cosy.

The jester is a more challenging tea cosy to knit. The main cosy is knitted sideways to start with and then stitches are picked up along the longer sides. The frill at the waist is knitted in advance and knitted to the main cosy as you go. There are lots of photos to guide you through the making of this cosy and the assembly.

He is such a lovely and fulfilled character. I love his eyes, they make him look so playful. He's so unusual and a wonderful project to make.

The Court Jester tea cosy enables your teapot to masquerade as a colourful harlequin.
