The Queen Elizabeth II tea cosy from TeaCosyFolk is based on the water coloured portrait of the queen by Dorothy Wilding from 1952, featuring a young looking queen in a gold and blue dress with silver crown and finery. The Royal Majesty tea cosy has our queen draped in a purple cape bearing her initials and holding a cup and saucer, because the Queen loves a good old cuppa too.

As always with our designs, the tea cosy is knitted with double thickness wool to keep the tea at the perfect temperature for a royal brew. This is one of the more challenging patterns to knit in the range and you will require circular needles and double pointed needles to create an I-cord and there are 6 pages to the pattern.

The perfect tea cosy for Royal-tea!

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
