A Cozy for my Cuppow!

Meet my new BFF... CUPPOW!  I ordered mine in January as soon as I heard about it and it arrived in today's mail!  Cuppow is brilliant, it turns my wide mouth mason jars into a to-go mug.  I realized, though, that for hot drinks my Cuppow needed a felted cozy!

So, I grabbed my Size 11 needles, held some worsted weight yarn double, and cast on 30 stitches in the round.  I knit for 14 rounds, bound off my stitches, wove in my ends, washed it in hot water and soap until the wool felted... instant CUPPOW cozy!  Oh Yes!  Can I even tell you how liberating it is to write a knitting pattern that is one run on sentence?

I did make a second Cuppow with hearts on it as my ode to Valentine's day.  I've included a chart below in case anyone else needs to make one too!  The chart is 10 stitches wide, so just repeat it three times around.

  6. I'm so glad you all like it! We've been LOVING it and plan to order more so everyone in the family has one. I like drinking out of glass so much more than to-go cups and this is a great solution!
