Now that I have tea cozies for my teapots, I’ve been thinking about my coffee mugs.
I wasn’t sure that a coffee cozy would really make all that much difference in keeping my mug of coffee warm. It seemed to me that what I really needed for it was some sort of lid over the top.
So I came up with this – a matching sweater and hat for my coffee mug:
The hat is actually just a plastic lid (in this case, from a sour cream container), with a knitted cover. The lid is easily removable for cleaning of both the lid and hat.
I plan on just offering the pattern for free, but it would be nice if I could have one or more people test-knit it before I make it public. Let me know if you’re interested, and I’ll send you the pattern. It only takes about 1 ounce of worsted-weight wool to make both the sweater and hat, so it’s perfect for leftover yarn. I used Cascade 220. Even if you only want to make the cozy and not the hat, that would be useful since I have both charted and written directions for the cozy, and I’d like to have both of them tested.
