FO - Two More Flirtation Cozies
I made two more of these. In case you missed the pattern link in my the posting of my first one, here it is (it's a free pattern). These are going to be for my sister and mother-in-law.

I used Patons SWS. The first one is in Natural Berry, and the second one is in Natural Denim. I'll say that the yarn redeemed itself in my eyes. I didn't like the feel of the colorway I used before (Natural Snow). It was really rough. For some reason, these two colors were much softer and, thus, more pleasurable to knit with.

I did a little bit of modifying to this pattern. First, I knit seven pattern repeats. Then, I only knit seven rows of SS and ended with six garter rows and bound off. I think that doing the 5" of SS makes the cozy too cumbersome to put on. Just my opinion.





Thanks for looking!

Very nice! I'll have to get some SWS and try my hand at it again - yours look much nicer in that yarn! I agree with your mods also... the one I did is a bit on the large side - I need to go out and find a super big mug for it!

On the plus side, my mom just gave me a $50 GC for Michaels for my bday - woo hoo!! Now I can go enhance my stash, and must start with new yarn for new and improved cozies :D

Another modification I might try, if I make any more, is to do only two moss stitches on either side of the cables. That would narrow the cozy a bit.

Glad y'all like them! Thanks for the kind words.

I really like the moss stitch on the sides of the cables--it's unusual and aesthetically pleasing.

You did a wonderful knitting job. I really like them.
