Knit Teacup Cozy

I saw this pattern (Knit Coffee Sleeve) on Ravelry and it looked like the perfect knit to get me back in the swing of things after the holidays.  I bought a mug just for the cozy, and it took me all of an hour to make.  I would have posted it sooner, but it was a surprise birthday gift for a tea-loving friend of mine, and I didn't want to spoil it!

Look at that texture!  Say it with me now... "oooh!  aaah!"  Its a great pattern - my first experience with the horseshoe cable.

I did something a little funky to make it stay on the cup... I'm not sure I could explain it well, but it works like a charm.  I may try to perfect it a little more and then write up a tutorial on it.  We'll see though - I seem to have a lot of grand ideas just not coming to fruition these days!


  1. As said tea-loving friend who received this as a gift - I ADORE IT! It is the cutest thing ever and it's totally making all of my other tea mugs jealous.

  2. It looks great! I did this one to as an intro to cables and its a great little project!

  3. Ahhh! The grand ideas. Thanks. This is lovely.
