Animated Tea Cosy


The sumo wrestler is an unusual sporty tea cosy that was inspired by the big sumo wrestlers. The sumo is a bulky fellow and the perfect shape for a tea cosy.

The sumo tea cosy is in a squat position that the wrestlers start in before a match. Because he is squatting his knees are bent out and his tummy is overhanging his mawashi slightly.

Around the back, his buttocks are exposed as you'd expect and the mawashi is tied in a big knot.

What an unusual knitting project, full of interesting parts to know and great detail. The Sumo tea cosy makes a great talking point when people call at teatime.

Perfect for hefty tea drinkers!

  • is made from double thickness yarn for extra insulation
