I completed this a few weeks ago but only now posted because it was part of a swap I was involved with, and I didn't want to spoil the surprise for my partner. :wink:

This is the Flirtation Cozy. The pattern is free and located here (http://aproudusafwife.blogspot.com/2008/02/flirtation-cozy.html).

I used Patons SWS. The color is Natural Snow.

A note about the yarn...

While it turns into a lovely project, I found it scratchy to knit with, which surprised me given how much I've enjoyed touching it in the store. The yarn is fluffy, which makes doing cable work challenging. I usually do not use a cable needle; however, I had to with this project.

Regardless, the pattern is lovely, and I know it turned out so well because of the yarn.

I test-drove it on one of my mugs before sending it off (the mug cried as I undressed it). :teehee:

Very pretty! I should knit one of these for my mother, she has tea or coffee every day and often complains that the mugs get too hot.

I love it, but I'm too sloppy of a tea drinker. I'd get it all over the yarn. I'd have to use black or brown :teehee:

I thought about what you said when I bought more yarn this weekend. I'm going to make my sister and mil cozies and went for a denim blue and burgundy/wine colors. :thumbsup:

Wow, that turned out lovely. What a well dressed cup. No wonder it cried when you stripped it. :-)

I laughed when I read this! Poor little mug, I certainly don't blame it for being upset - that cozy is gorgeous!

Try sending a private message to Auburn Chick and ask if she still has the pattern.

Unfortunately, the pattern's designer pulled her pattern from the internet. I contacted her asking for permission to share it, but she told me that she did not want me to do that. I am so sorry. :(

I suggest that you study the cable. I'm sure you can improvise a bit. :)

Looking at these is fun. Some of the tea cozy designs in particular are just so complicated.
