His and Hers Coffee Cozies

TAGS:

These cozies were the first thing I made when I first learned to knit and they were invaluable in teaching me to knit, purl, cable, and how to switch back and forth between the different stitches. The original site where I found the pattern has been down for over a year so I recreated the pattern based on what I could remember.
 
The "his" is a basketweave pattern and the "hers" is an XO cable pattern.

Step 1

Basket-weave Cozy
I didn't do a gauge for this, nor do I have recommendations for yarn or needle size (though I did knit this originally on straight needles size 6, worsted weight yarn). This can all be adjusted depending on the size of your mug. If you want to add width, make sure you add in sets of 4. (For example, to go up a size, cast on 16 stitches and add an extra alternating block.)
 
Cast on 12 stitches
Rows 1: K4, P4, K4
Row 2: P4, K4, P4
Repeat rows 1 and 2 six times.
 
Row 9: P4, K4, P4
Row 10: K4, P4, K4
Repeat rows 9 and 10 six times.
 
Repeat the above until your cozy reaches the desired length. Bind off. Sew a button on one end.
Create an I-cord long enough to loop around the button and sew it on the opposite end.
And there you have it!

Step 2

XO Cable Cozy
Like the above, I do not have a gauge or any recommendations. The pattern below fits a smaller mug, but I adjusted it to fit a larger mug (seen here) by adding extra purls on either side of the cable.
 
C4B: Put two stitches on a spare needle and hold it in the back. Knit two stitches, then knit the two stitches from the spare needle.
C4F: Put two stitches on a spare needle and hold it in the front. Knit two stitches, then knit the two stitches from the spare needle.
 
Cast on 16 stitches
Row 1: K2, P2, C4F, C4B, P2, K2
Row 2: K4, P8, K4
Row 3: K2, P2, K8, P2, K2
Row 4: K4, P8, K4
Row 5: K2, P2, C4B, C4F, P2, K2
Row 6: K4, P8, K4
Row 7: K2, P2, K8, P2, K2
Row 8: K4, P8, K4
Row 9: K2, P2, C4B, C4F, P2, K2
Row 10: K4, P8, K4
Row 11: K2, P2, K8, P2, K2
Row 12: K4, P8, P4
Row 13: K2, P2, C4F, C4B, P2, K2
Row 14: K4, P8, K4
Row 15: K2, P2, K8, P2, K2
Row 16: K4, P8, K4
 
Repeat the above until you've reached the desired length. Bind off. Sew a button on end.
Create an i-cord long enough to loop around the button. Sew it on the opposite end.
And you're done!
