Cooler weather means warm sweaters, fluffy scarves, and cups of steaming pumpkin spice lattes. Ok.... If you're like me, you drink pumpkin spice lattes all year round, but most people tie those into the Fall season. Since everyone is breaking out their sweater stash, why not whip one up for your latte as well?
I call this my 'Faux Cable' coffee cozy because the stitches sort of resemble those on a cable-knit sweater. These are so quick and easy to whip up, and they make excellent gifts for coworkers. If you set up at craft fairs, these also sell pretty quickly.
Also, because I'm a kind, sweet, generous ray of sunshine that adores her readers, I created a free coffee cozy printable to use when gifting or selling these little gems. Check it out here: FREE COFFEE COZY TEMPLATE
