Paper coffe cup and soda can cozys
I found a pattern to make a cozy, knitted it up 5 different times and just hated the thing. It just looked sloppy and not well put together, not the designers fault but yours truly, so I made my own pattern using a book of stitches I have. I bought 7 skeins in different colors and each skein will make a variety of 4 patterns so I will have bunches to stick into gifts and give away to friends and such. Here are a couple of the patterns.

Well done, Nonny. Good for you making up your own designs - they look very cosy. Great idea for a gift.

I made a coffee cup cosy a few months ago for my sister's birthday. It was one of Kelly Klem's tubular double-knit designs.
