Caron Simply Soft Coffee Press & Mug Cozies

Warm up on a chilly day with a mug of coffee or tea. And keep it warm and cozy with these adorable cable knit coffee press and mug cozies!

Use a gauge of 18 sts + 24 rows (4") in stocking st to knit a coffee press that’s approx 7” tall x 12” around and a mug cozy that’s approx 10-1/4” around x 4” tall. When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.
