I Think I'll  "Pass Over Cables" Coffee Cozy

 

Materials:

-Bulky Weight Yarn (I used Fat Sheep by Farmhouse Yarns  50% wool, 50% mohair)

-Size 10 long circular needles or DPNs

-Coffee Cup or tumbler for blocking

 

Gauge:  3.5 purl stitches to an inch (approximately 12 stitches to 4 inches in pattern)

 

Stitch Pattern   "Mock Cable Rib"

Rnds 1, 2, & 4:  *P5, k3*

Rnd 3:  *P5, sl1, k2, YO, psso the k2 & YO*

Abbreviations:

P- purl                      sl- slip                                 psso- pass slipped stich over

k- knit                      YO- Yarn over

Directions:

Cast on 32 stitches and join for working in the round being careful not to twist the cast on stitches.

Work in Pattern for a total of 3 repeats (12 rows).  

Bind off loosely.  I love to use Elizabeth Zimmerman's Sewn bind off for these projects, because it makes a stretchy top for a variety of sized cups.  

Wet block over a tumbler to get the coffee cozy shape (a little bigger at the top than at the bottom).
