Animated Tea Cosy


The Viking tea cosy is a big burly Norseman with all the usual trappings that we associate with Viking warriors.

The Viking tea cosy had yellow hair, that is braided and platted. This look is achieved with cable knitting.

His helmet has bobble to add decoration and two horns. I know this might not be historically correct, but the myth of horns on their helmets has been around so long now that for most people, this is how we imagine Vikings to look.

He is also carrying a shield and an axe. Woe betide anyone trying to steal tea from this Viking guarded teapot!

I love this tea cosy, the bobbles, cables and textures make the tea cosy interesting to make and makes the yarn look chunkier and insulating - perfect for a Scandinavian teapot!

Keeping teapots hot, Scandinavian style!

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
