Quick To Stitch Knit Coffee Cozy - Free Knitting Pattern

I use these daily.
I need several because I am
sort of a klutz.
I spill things, sometimes.
okay, often. 

So I made a few cozies from 
Worsted weight Acrylic yarn.
then I thought, 
I wonder if I can make some out 
of cotton yarn?"
I did, and I love the cotton ones,
 even more then the acrylic ones.
These are not only easy, but super quick to stitch up.
