Hello Fellow Knitters!
My friends and I went on an all girls camping trip this year and I was in charge of bringing beverages, I made some Amazing White Wine Sangria and packed it in Mason Jars, and also brought coffee for in the morning. One thing I didn’t bring was enough mugs for all of the girls to enjoy their coffee, as a result, we used the empty Mason Jars that I packed the Sangria in, this was a great idea, except the mugs were a bit hot to touch so we used some towels to keep our hands warm.
After this experience I thought it would be a good idea to make a cozy for my mason jar cups so I could enjoy my hot tea or coffee without burning my hand.
I came up with the idea for a knit cozy with a pocket on the side to hold a tea bag, instant coffee pouch or sugar packet. Knitting seemed like the perfect technique for this cozy, though I think I am also going to work on a crochet cozy in the near future, possibly one with an opening on the side that can be used with a mug or mason jar.
For now, this cozy will do just fine. I used a medium weight acrylic yarn, though I think for my next one I might want to use cotton yarn. The acrylic yarn seems so far to be just right, soft to the touch and has just the right amount of stretch to it.
