Coffee cozy pattern

I continue to be inspired by Doctor Who and his cool bow tie, and this time it has lead me to make coffee cozies that are somewhat formal, and yet, cool.

The pattern is modular and the cozy itself can be knit plain, as in the picture above, or double as in the picture below.

The cross band can be knit with the rows in the opposite direction of the rows in cozy, as in the two pictures above, or in the same direction as the cozy, as in the picture below.

Finally there is an optional pocket, and the cozy can be made in one color, or have a contrasting color on the cross band and pocket, as in my red and green cozy.

The cozy can comfortably be worn on your wrist when it isn't being used on a coffee cup.

Almost any type of yarn can be used, but I have used yarns that fit well with 3 mm needles. The two without pockets were made with Silja yarn in the color they call 309, while the one with pocket is made with the yarn Muskat in the colors 41 bordeaux and 03 mint green.   

Otherwise I recommend making the pocket, if you take up this project. It is very handy for a packet of sugar or a teabag. And it is quite decorative.

Download the free pattern in English or Norwegian.

If you make one of these, please let me know how it went.


So now my red bow collection has two patterns. Yay!

Until next time,

Happy Knitting
