A couple of weeks before Christmas, it's great fun to visit the local Christmas tree farm to hand pick your Christmas tree for the season. Once cut down, you carry it back to the car to take it home, where it will have pride of place and be decorated in shiny baubles and lights. That's the story behind the Christmas tree bringer tea cosy.

This character is wrapped up warm and snug in this Parker style coat with a lovely fur edged hood. They are also wearing cute festive mittens to keep the frostbite from their fingers.

Over their shoulder they are carrying a lovely Christmas tree. But I think someone else had already chosen this particular tree to be their winter home. A cross squirrel is running up the tree to tell the person off.

It's a cute and unusual tea cosy that feels Christmassy and tells a little story. There are some tricky bits to knit, loopy stitch and short rows, but here are help videos included in the knitting pattern to help you, or you can find them on Youtube.

Christmas trees are an old tradition that requires a hot cup of tea when completed.

This Tea Cosy:

  • is made from double thickness yarn for extra insulation
  • fits a medium sized teapot that holds 6 to 8 cups or 2 pints
