Americana Coffee Beanie Cozy
The 4th of July is upon us and I needed to make the Americana Coffee Beanie Cozy! We have 2 other great patterns for the 4th, but I really like our Coffee Beanie Cozies so I really wanted to make one festive for the 4th!
You could, of course, make this in any colors, for any occasion.
The stitch pattern I chose is called “wedge stitch”, which to me, looked like penants. Sort of like a 4th of July banner or garland.
The Wedge Stitch
To work this particular stitch design, you have to really know the anatomy of a stitch. The backside, front side, bottom, top–everything. To help you with this, here’s the photo tutorial for part of how you work this stitch. I only included what you needed to know for this particular pattern. The full stitch tutorial might have to be another blog post!
You will need 1-90 yard skein of each: Red, White, and Blue. I used Paintbox Yarns Cotton Aran in Rose Red, Paper White, and Royal Blue.
How to Use Coffee Beanie Cozies
I use mine for all types of drinks! It would seem that they fit more than the 20oz cups they were designed for. I tried the Americana Coffee Beanie Cozy on a cold drink:
And a HOT one! Oh my goodness, you should FEEL how hot this drink can be! The little cardboard sleeve they give you is NO match for the heat that coffee brings!
I hope you enjoy this Coffee Beanie Cozy as much as I and my husband do! He totally stole it from me after my pictures were done!
