Braided Cable Cup Cozy – Knitting Pattern

It’s been such a busy time around here. And don’t even get me started on the flash flooding or thunderstorms! Here is a quick wee pattern for a cup cozy. I like them for popping on a mug as part of a gift, and they are really nice for stopping your hands burning when drinking something too hot.

You will need:

  • 4mm knitting needles
  • Cable needle
  • DK yarn
  • Darning needle
  • Button
  • Crochet hook
