Basic Skills Necessary:

  • cables
  • double stitch embroidery

Pattern Description:

I am a big Wes Anderson fan. Love his films. So, every time, when his new movie comes out, it is an event :)) To commemorate his new masterpiece The Grand Budapest Hotel, I came up with mug cozy, with two optional motifs - The Society of the Crossed Keys logo & The Grand Budapest Hotel logo.

I used Lion Brand Yarn Fishermen's Wool - it is soft to a touch and heather color dye makes it coffee/tea friendly - would't show too much in case of spilling (it happens...) Seamless cable pattern designed to hug tight your standard Grande (16oz) cup.

And if you haven't seen this film yet - you are in for a treat!

Happy Knitting!
