Free Pattern for {Cable Knit Cup Cozy}

I have for you today a free pattern for a super cute {cable knit cup cozy}. Even if you’re a beginner knitter, I think you’ll find this pattern pretty simple. I’ve been knitting for awhile now, but just a few years ago I attempted my first cables. There’s something about cables that I just LOVE! I really thought they were harder to do. I’ll have to say, I was quite surprised how easy it was! And since my first attempt, I’ve made beautiful cable knit pillows, cup cozies, afghans, and scarves. Knitting cables is a bit addicting for me. 🙂 My brother has requested a cable knit sweater, but I have yet to do that project! . . . maybe one of these days. 🙂

Who doesn’t like their own cup cozy instead of the plain ones from your favorite coffee shop? Usually when we get coffee out, there are several of us sisters together and it’s easy to get our cups mixed up. So, with your own unique cup cozy, everyone knows whose cup is whose. 🙂 And, you can show off your chic cup cozy to everyone else in the coffee shop, right?! I love this pattern because it reminds me of a cozy sweater on these cold days. So, here’s the free pattern . . . 

Here’s what you need:
