Title: Coffee Cozy With pattern
Post by: babyknit on September 26, 2007 02:46:20 PM
Well I was sitting around thinking about gifts that I could give for Christmas..Well my family drinks a lot of coffee and I thought it would be a great idea to make some cozy's... Here are some pics of my work they didn't come out to good but there the best of the bunch...

 







it was really easy to make..I made it in like 10-15 mins...
Pattern:
size 6 needles   ww yarn
gauge: 8sts per inch before washing

co 30
row 1-4: knit
row5:     k3,p24,k3
row6:     k3,k24,k3
row7:     k3,p24,k3
(you get the idea) do that for your desire length you want it to be...then knit 3 round and bind off 4th round...

close up bottom and but a button on one side, you could use a cute ribon or anything like that...if you dont want that you could just sew up the whole thing and leave it alone..there are many things you can do with it... If you make it please post pics on here I want to see how they came out..

Thanks for looking...

That's a great idea! I've seen different versions of these all over and I love them all! I'm gonna make one for my coffee-addict Sister-in-law.

That is super-cozy cute! I hadn't seen anything like it before, not that it's not out there, but I hadn't really been looking.  But I must say, I love the idea, and the color is mighty cool too!

I love that it fits round a normal mug too. Cute and clever!

So cute!  My SIL, MIL, and I all share the coffee junkie so I think I'll be making some of these up for them (and myself  ;) ).  Thanks for the pattern!

ETA:  What yarn did you use?  It really looks beautiful knitted up.

That's adorable!  And perfect way to use up weird amounts of stashed-up yarn too  :D  I love it!

Great thanx!  I've seen that yarn before at Walmart but just never bought any.  I'm going to start it this evening as soon as the babe goes to bed.  ;)
