Heart Cup Cozy

One of my favorite things to do is to find a nice coffee shop, get a soy latte and knit/read. It’s so relaxing. I often wonder if other people get as much enjoyment out of it as I do. This cup cozy also fits your standard sized mason jar for your to-go drinks.

This simple cozy is made in the round on double pointed needles which means you end up with a beautiful product that is seamless and with minimal finishing afterwards.

I use two strands of DK yarn for this pattern. This can end in a tangled mess, but in the process, you get a beautiful cup cozy!
