Your friends and family will be blown away when you pull out this ink-redibly realistic cosy at tea time!

The Octopus Tea Cosy Knitting Pattern by TeaCosyFolk is a wonderful tea cosy that looks so realistic.

He’s knitted in just two shades of Stylecraft Special DK; Spice and Saffron. Whilst the main part of the cosy is knitted with double thickness yarn to keep the teapot really hot, the rest of the octopus is knitted with a single strand on 4.0mm knitting needles.

What is great is that you can get really creative with the legs and sew them into any position, but I think they look amazing curled up.

It’s a 4 page knitting pattern that is easy to follow and mainly worked in stocking stitch with a few bobbles to create tentacle suckers. There is a help video on YouTube to knit the bobbles, you can find it here https://youtu.be/sPB7pxRPnuw

The Octopus 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!

This product is the knitting pattern only to make your own Octopus tea cosy.
