Help knit the World's Biggest Tea Cosy!

Wallace & Gromit’s Children’s Foundation are attempting to set a world record for the biggest ever hand knitted Tea Cosy and we need your help.
We are asking you to knit a 6” width strip, as long as you like of any colour or pattern you like and send to our friends at “I knit London” who will make your knitted strip part of the world’s biggest tea cosy. The wool can be any colour you like and you make your strip as long as you can manage, all we ask is that it is 6” in width (approx 28 stitches), double knit yarn, and 4mm needles.
Please send your knitting by 21st November to: I knit London Worlds Biggest Tea Cosy 106 Lower Marsh Waterloo London SE1 7AB
This is for a great cause: The Wallace & Gromit’s Children’s Foundation which raises funds to help improve the quality of life of sick children in hospitals and hospices across the UK.


  1. Hi. There was a whole group of Ebglish bloggers talking about knitting for charity not so long, over at Nuts in May. I will pass the word along. Great post.

  2. Thanks for spreading the word.
