With the weather being downright frigid even our cups need cozies to keep them warm. I just started to knit and crotchet again and I have to tell you that I am not so good at reading patterns. This cup cozy was floating around facebook, and I saw one over at etsy that you could buy and thought that I could make one for myself. I am also going to tell you that this is the first time I have written a pattern so I hope that you can understand what I am trying to do… Please ask questions if you don’t understand.
To Make White Heart Cup Cozy
I used Red Heart Yarn and 6 mm knitting needles. You will also need felt to make the hearts.
Cast on 20 stitches.
Row 1: Knit across 20 stitches
Row 2: Knit 4, Purl 12, Knit 4
Continue to work alternating both rows until your project measures 6 -8 inches across, ending with Row 2, depending on your cup. You want your project to go around your cup but not overlap. Cast off.
Fold cozy in half, with right sides together. With needle and thread sew first 3 rows and last 3 rows together. Handle will fit in between sewed rows.
Cut out 3 felt hearts and sew to right side of cozy.
You could also knit this to go around a travel mug. Just measure the size of your travel mug and sew up the side completely instead of leaving an opening for the handle. This is a quick and easy project for new knitters, taking only a couple of hours depending on howl fast you knit.
A perfect DIY gift for Valentine’s Day.
