Finnish Coffee Cozy

from Crafting-a-Life Originals
(6) Name: 'Knitting : Finnish Coffee Cozy
Finnish Coffee Cozy
Finnish Coffee Cozy
Finnish Coffee Cozy
Finnish Coffee Cozy edge of cast-on
Finnish Coffee Cozy

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • stranded knitting

Pattern Description:

This Coffee Cozy uses a part of a motif I've been using in my Finnish patterns for the "Knitting XX from Around the World" books (socks, scarves, mittens, sweaters).

This pattern includes a brief tutorial and photos on how to make a plaited cast-on and bind-off. You don't NEED to know how to do stranded knitting. In fact, if you're the type who learns by doing then this is an excellent pattern to learn and practice on.

The cozy is forgiving and works well for handspun of an inconsistent gauge (ask me how I know).

The sample you see here uses Lamb's Pride worsted and US8/5mm for knitting in the round, the other uses the same needles and worsted(ish) handspun.
