Quick Coffee Cozies

I have been commissioned to knit coffee cozies for the promo of Season 3- Portlandia a TV comedy. Pretty exciting!! the first season 3 airing is January 4,2013.

I thought I'd share this simple coffee cozie for others to knit up for friends and family.

Size 7 US needles 4 Dpns
Guage not important

  • Cast on 27 divide stitches as evenly as possible- doesn't really matter- Purl first two rows
  • Knit the next 14 rows
  • Purl two rows
  • Cast off knitwise.

Sew in loose ends
Add any type of decoration- this is where you can make it your own creation- have fun, go wild, be crazy.

These make great gifts, give the cozie with the cup and inside the cup put your favorite coffee/tea gift card.

Red Sweater

Knitting on a sailboat is the perfect past time. Yarn is light weight, easy to store, and you can put down your knitting at any time to help with boat projects, then pick it right back up again.

Kodiak Island has so many knitters willing to share their skills and talents. My learning curve has been steep, filled with many hints, tips and new techniques.

The red sweater is at long last finished and it fits. The pattern was from even after multiple gauge samples the sweater did not fit- I knit the full body 6 times before I got it right. I won't give up- the moto of this sweater. (But I now have a pattern that fits me)
