|The purl bind off creates a nice brim|
Every morning she comes into work holding a *insert very large fast food chain*'s large coffee. The take-away cup was just asking for a quirky little cosy and so I quickly knitted one for her for Christmas.
I made it the night before I gave it to her and when she effusively thanked me, I felt a bit awkward as it took next-to-no time to make.
The pattern I used is very simple and can be found at Kureyon Coffee Cozy It's a great example of the little things that a knitter can make and give as gifts and, as I had the Noro Sock wool in my stash, it really cost me nothing.
I did not use the crochet cast-on and my normal method (cable cast-on) worked well. It knits up in no time. In fact, there is still time to knit quite a few for Christmas and, if you made a coffee now, you could knit a cosy by the time it got cold. Almost!
Thanks so much for visiting. We'd love to have you join us on Facebook too.
