Hey all!

I knitted this cozy for my husband for the holidays.  He's a huge Galaga fan (which is an old video game).  Since the game is so old, it was really easy to convert the pixelated image of the ship into a knitting pattern.  He was expecting and exited about a sweater, but I think he likes the cozy much better!  He certainly wasn't expecting it.

I [heart] craftster,
-j

*edited to add:* Row 13 should read *k6, k into front and back of next stitch*

There is a book called Knitting Pretty that has a beer cozy pattern.  Haven't seen it though...I have been working on a can sized cozy pattern with a base, current prototype shown here.  Ignore the lumpy bit at the top (it's experimental, not a tumor) and the ladder running up the side (didn't pull the first stitch on the needle tight enough).  I used Debbie Bliss cotton dk but I think this is better done in worsted weight wool.  I'm still messing with the pattern.  

CAN COZY w/ built-in coaster
size 4/3.5mm dpns
5 sts/10 rows = 1"
CO 9, divide evenly among 3 needles
Row 1) k all
Row 2) *yo, k1* = 18 sts
Rows 3-5) k all
Row 6) *yo, k1* = 36 sts
Rows 7 - 11) k all
Row 12) *yo, k2tog*
Row 13) *k6, k into front and back of next stitch*
Rows 14-30) k all
Bind off.  Finish base: Using a tapestry needle, weave tail through the center of the base and pull  so the hole in the middle shrinks.  Weave in ends.  

If you want a cozy without a base, you could modify a wristband pattern so it would measure about 8" around.

I loved the beer cozy, so I decided to make my fiance a soda cozy of his own with some inartesia letters on it that spell out his name.

I made the letters a bit too wide, but it says "(heart)Tex" on it.

The Knitting Pretty pattern is available online at http://www.chroniclebooks.com/Chronicle/excerpt/0811835332-e4.html (it's a promo excerpt from the book).
