This will be new for those of you don’t read design*sponge (if you don’t read it, which rock have you been living under?) and if you do read it, you may have already seen this week’s Tutorial Tuesday project.

From Derek and Lauren of The Curiosity Shoppe and via design*sponge.

What you need to make your own Knitted French Press Cozy:

Size 5 knitting needles
Yarn (we used Debbie Bliss’ Cashmerino Aran in color #300502)
Scissors
Yarn darning needle

To cover an 8 cup Bodum french press you’ll need to knit a rectangle that measures approximately 12″ x 6″.

1. Using size 5 needles, cast on 60 stitches.
2. Knit in k2, p2 rib for 4 rows.
3. Knit in stockinette stitch for 36 more rows
4. Read more here…

Remember, don’t forget to join the Tutorial Tuesday flickr group and share your French Press (or any other household object) Cozy pics for a chance to win a copy of Kyuuto! Japanese Crafts: Lacy Crochet published by Chronicle Books. One winner will be chosen from the pool at the contest end on March 12th. Read about how to add an image to the flickr group here.

  1. I’ve been going around picking out stuff I want to make cozies for….hmm. maybe Mr. Indie Fixx needs a cozy for his shaver.

  2. Oh, goodness, I think I have been under a rock! Thank you so much for this tut and the link to Design Sponge. This is perfect for my next knitting project; I’ll have a camoflauge scarf for my 12yo son done today (doesn’t every 12yo boy need a camo scarf?).
