Zeus is well known in Greek mythology as the God of the Skies and King of the Gods. He's less known as God of the Teapot, until now... The Zeus tea cosy could be coming to a teapot near you with this new tea cosy design.

This smashing tea cosy really does have all the drama. The main part of the tea cosy is Zeus's storm cloud which is grey and raining. Zeus is stood on top of the cloud in his toga and he's throwing lightning bolts about.

The cloud is knitted in bubble stitch which gives the work a lovely bubbly, billowy look. It's not a difficult stitch, but it's easier to do when you have seen a demonstration. There is a help video for this stitch on Youtube and the link is included in the knitting pattern.

I love the lightning bolts. There are three on the cosy and they are simple to make but look really effective.

The Zeus tea cosy fits a medium sized Price and Kensington teapot and is knitted in Stylecraft Special DK yarn.

I think he would be a fun tea cosy for people who are into Greek mythology or people who are into weather.

Perfect for when it's pouring!
