FREE PATTERN: Coffee Cup Cozy

I love coffee.

That’s actually probably an understatement.

I drink exactly one cup a day. On rare occasions I have a second cup. But my one cup a day makes me so happy. My favourites are Tofino Roast and North Mountain. One from each coast of Canada.

But I digress.

At Christmas I got a spindle. The beauty of fiber craft is that all the old is coming back to be new again. Drop spindles. Spinning wheels. What was one something only grandmothers did, children, teens and adults are picking up the craft.

I only learned to crochet in December 2012. I wanted to make a hat.

Since then I’ve made hundreds of items. I’ve picked up knitting. And spinning. I’ve become picky about yarns.

So I picked up this fleece from Fleece Artist at my Local Yarn Store – Pam’s Woolley Shoppe.

And then I spun it.

Then my daughter and I wound it and I plied it (i.e. I respun it holding it double twisting the other way to make it into yarn.

I washed it, tied it, hung it out to dry.

So the yarn wasn’t perfect. But it was awesome. There were parts I wasn’t thrilled with. But overall.. overall I’m SO happy with it!

Plus I love the pattern I made for the cup cozy so I decided to share it with you.
