Animated Tea Cosy


The Parachutist tea cosy is a daredevil tea cosy design of a parachutist coming in to land.

With the helmet on the parachutist head, you can't really say if its a man or a woman. They are holding on to the parachute ropes and have they legs bent upwards ready for the landing.

Their jumpsuit is bright red, but you could knit the suit in any colour you liked.

The parachute is one of those rectangular ones that billows. The parachute is knitted in two colour stripes and brings a lot of fun to the cosy.

The arms are knitted with a few short rows at the elbows. Short rows are rows that you turn the work before reaching the last stitch. You'll find videos about short rows on Youtube.

The parachutist tea cosy is perfect for people who like parachuting, skydiving, paragliding, parasailing or who just like dropping in for tea unannounced.

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