Coffee Coozie

I found this free knit from the blog of MK Carroll. It's her Mug and French Press Jacket pattern and it can be found here.

This was a quick knit for sure! First time I ever did a smocking pattern and I loved it! I must do this stitch pattern again. Love the texture!

I decided to knit the this in the round from the top down. I made it for a to-go coffee mug (so no openings needed for a handle) -- If you are a Ravelry member go check out the one gumboots did. I followed her instructions for the top down method and it worked out great!It's also is nice to use as a coozie for a mason jar and then use it hold your hooks, scissors, pens or whatever you want!Pattern Source: MK Carroll's, Mug and French Press Jacket
Yarn: Filtes-King Extra, 100% Merino Wool
Needles: Size 7s (16 inch circulars and DPNs)
