This cup cozy fits over a take away cup… as it helps keep the drink warm, and prevents burning ones hands on a drink that is just short of scalding. I used to make these to sell during markets, and they were popular on cold days.
This cozy is knitted in the round on 4 needles.

– 4mm double pointed needs (or alternatively you can use circular)
