Our friend Julie over in Athens has come up with this fab little cup cosy with a pocket! Perfect for a sugar sachet or a spare tea bag, we love this design and wanted to share the knitting pattern with everyone.
The pattern is available for free on Simply Notable – the blog that Julie shares with her daughter. These mug cosies are a great project to knit up in a free afternoon, or even a couple of hours. Using just knit and purl stitches to make up the grey one, and a small cable stitch on the other, both patterns would be a good introduction for beginners that want to learn a few new knitting tricks.
The pockets are created by picking up stitches from the cosy – so if you are new to this it will be good practice if for those planning to knit larger things like jumpers or cardigans.
Julie also has an Etsy site on which she is selling pick a pocket cosies, for anyone wishing to buy one ready made!
