Kureyon Coffee Cozy
Here's a little pattern for last-minute gift giving that is quick and fun and, of course, knit from Noro.
Yarn: Noro Kureyon approximately 33 meters/36 yards (one ball makes 3 cozies)
Needles: US7/4.50mm dpns, USJ10/6.00mm crochet hook (optional)
Fits a 16 oz. coffee cup.
Cast on 32 sts. (Although you could use just about any cast on method you prefer, I recommend the following crochet method.) With crochet hook, chain 31. Transfer the last chain loop to a dpn and pick up 31 stitches through the bumps at the back of the 31 chain sts (32 sts).
Divide sts onto 4 needles, 8 sts per needle. Join in the round without twisting.
Purl 1 round.
rows 1-3: knit
row 4 (inc row): Knit first 4 sts on needle 1. Next st, knit into st below. Knit remaining sts on needle 1 (+1 st). Knit all sts on needle 2. Knit first 4 sts on needle 3. Next st, knit into st below. Knit remaining sts on needle 3 (+1 st). Knit all sts on needle 4.
rows 5-7: knit
row 8 (inc row): Knit all sts on needle 1. Knit first 4 sts on needle 2. Next st, knit into st below. Knit remaining sts on needle 2 (+1 st). Knit all sts on needle 3. Knit first 4 sts on needle 4. Next st, knit into st below. Knit remaining sts on needle 4 (+1 st).
Repeat these 8 rows 4 times until there are 12 sts on each needle, 48 sts total.
Knit 2 rounds. Purl 1 round. Bind off loosely next round in knit.
Weave in ends. (If you used the crochet cast on suggested above, you can pick out the beginning slip knot before weaving in for a neater finish).
Hand wash vigorously in warm water to slightly full the surface and dry partially in hot dryer. Shape over cup and allow to dry completely.

An interesting project! But then you would have to knit the entire set for small, medium, and large cups, depending on your caffeine mood of the moment.

(suspiciously) are those the leftovers from your obsession?

Love the pattern. Have you tried them with larger drinks before and do they still go up part of the cup? I suppose I should just make one this way, and then drink a few different sized drinks to investigate...oh the pains we go through for our knitting. ;)

This cozy is so cute that it makes me want to learn how to knit! I think it could be used for beer in addition to coffee... not sure if the male population will go for it, but I sure will.
