Looking for creative gift ideas? Nothing is more from the heart than a handmade gift. This Purple knit coffee cozy is bright, colorful and easy to make!
Over the past few years, I’ve dabbled in knitting. It’s very relaxing, and it’s helps keep my mind busy when I need to focus my thoughts and energy elsewhere.
So, since I’m a coffee lover, I thought it would be fun to try my hand at a knit coffee cozy.
This is one of my favorite coffee cozies I’ve ever made. Here’s a basic run down of how I did it.
Purple Knit Coffee Cozy
I started with the base in a stockingette stitch (K1, P1). Since this is a custom gift, you can make it as wide or long as you like.
When you are finished, just stitch the ends together.
For the flower, I knit an i-cord and looped it together to form a flower. Finish it off with a button for the center of the flower.
I love the contrast between the purple and lime green, don’t you?
And the red button just pops off the flower!
These are great gifts to give teachers and are so easy to make!
Learning to knit has been a fun new hobby for me! Finding new patterns to create inspires me to knit more.
I gave these as gifts to my family and friends as well as the boys teachers – all who said they love them!
So, if you like to knit, I hope you give this a try!
And if knitting isn’t your thing, you can always find knit coffee cozies on the web!
