12 Days of Christmas – Day 11 – Christmas Cozy

In winter I love holding a coffee in my hands, and basically taking a moment to think.  Here is a quick knit coffee cozy knit in the round, with a subtle Christmas tree.  Make one of these for a quick stocking stuffer or last minute gift idea… include a mug, fancy coffee, or a coffee voucher.

Mark the start of the rotation to the end of the first 8 stitches. Your tree will go here. Follow the chart knitting all the white squares and insert a purl for every blue square.

Knit 2 more rotations – carefully including the tree motif.

Third row of the tree motif: K8, k1 front and back, repeat 3 more times. You will now have 40 stitches.

Knit 4 more rotations including the tree motif

Eighth row of tree motif: K9, k1 front and back, repeat 3 more times. You will now have 44 stitches.

Knit final rotation of the tree motif.

Knit 2 more rotations.

Cast off

You can now darn in your ends.  The cozy is reversible at this point, with a tree shape on either side.  Optionally you can overstitch the tree stitches for a Scandi style look.
