Owl Coffee Cup Cozie

Free knitting patterns

materials:
- aran, dk or worsted yarn (18-20sts =4″),  13 grams
- dpn’s (right size for yarn & tension) set of 4
- 10 sew-on eyes, 8mm-10mm
- cable needle, darning needle (to sew on eyes) and crochet hook (to weave in ends)
- optional: scrap yarn in a contrasting colour to sew on a beak

Finished size: mine ended up being 4″ tall, and fits a large cup of take out coffee (approx 8-9″ in diameter)

NOTE: Some people have noted that their finished cozie wound up being too big, so dropping down a needle size may be needed to make the cup cozie snug enough to fit a take-out coffee cup.

Terms used in this pattern:
C4F: put 2 sts on a cable needle, hold in front, k2, then k2 from cable needle
C4B: put 2 sts on a cable needle, hold in back, k2, then k2 from cable needle
C2F: put 1 st on a cable needle, hold in front, k1, then k1 from cable needle
C2B: put 1 st on a cable needle, hold in back, k1, then k1 from cable needle

how-to:
Cast on 52 sts. Divide between 3 dpn’s, and join.
K2, P2 rib for 4 rows.
Next row (5th row): continue doing k2, p2 rib while increasing 3 stitches evenly around. 55 sts.

Work Owl Cable: (there are 5 owls around)
Rows 1 & 2: *k8, p3* around to end.
Row 3: *C4B, C4F, p3* around.
Rows 4-9: *k8, p3* around to end.
Row 10: *C4B, C4F, p3* around.
Rows 11-15: *k8, p3* around to end.
Row 16: *C4B, C4F, p3* around.
Row 17: *k8, p3* around to end. Or, to make pointy ears: *C2B, k4, C2F, p3* around to end.

Next row: work k2, p2 rib while decreasing 3 sts evenly around. (52 sts)
Work 4 rows of k2, p2 rib.
Cast off loosely, weave in ends.

To finish: Sew on 2 eyes per owl, just under the third cable that was worked in row 16. Add a beak using duplicae stitch
