Today we release our Kate Coffee Beanie Cozy (or CBC as we refer to them). It uses the same gorgeous and timeless stitch combo that is in all of our Kate designs. It is a great collection for girls of all ages from children to the more mature lady. So far we have a gorgeous warm wrap, a hat and scarf and now the CBC with a wristlet following soon!
If you have been following us for any length of time you will have probably realised that we get inspired by stitch combos and have quite a few collections that we keeping coming back to and adding to.
Naming our collections
We name our collections after the people we love. This particular collection was named after one of my sisters, Kate. We are also starting to add to our Hannah collection (another sister and Kate’s identical twin) and we have some Susan items (both my mum and my baby sister are called Susan). Sara has the Paige collection named after her daughter and the Robin collection named after her father. You get the idea!
We recently did a pattern tutorial on our YouTube Channel for the Kate Scarf!
These videos show you how to work the stitch combo you need for any of our Kate Collection patterns!
A practical gift
Our coffee beanie cozies make fantastic gifts. I team mine up with a Starbucks 20 oz cup and / or gift card when I am looking for something quick.
The Kate Coffee Beanie Cozy is more of a feminine design, but we do have more unisex designs too.

They make great gifts for teachers, teens, adults, that last minute gift for a co-worker.
You can use them for your hot drinks during the autumn and winter and for your iced drinks in summer! My daughter uses hers on her shush drinks (they are basically ice with flavoured syrup) and she insists that there is always a couple in my handbag to use as required! Here she is using hers about a year ago – when we were allowed to go out places and have some fun!
