The Gargoyle Tea Cosy is an angry looking winged, lion legged creature that was based on old masonry gargoyles. Gargoyles traditionally adorn buildings as part of the gutterings, but people have taken the humble gargoyles to their heart and into their homes and gardens, and now they can adorn their teapots with gargoyles.

Gargoyles are so characterful, I particularly like the ugly or mischievous ones that stick their tongues out and pick their noses or worst.

I went for the scary expression because of the gothic theme. I thought the scary look would be more appealing. He’d be perfect for a Halloween tea cosy.

The Gargoyle tea cosy is great fun to make and looks frightening for yarn. A great project to have a go at and enjoy.

The Gargoyle tea cosy fits a medium sized teapot that covers a Teapot that holds 6 to 8 cups or 2 pints.

The pattern will be available for digital download as soon as you have completed purchase, so you could start knitting him very soon!
