Cup Cuddler: Free Knitting Pattern Guest Post from Knit ‘n Kaboodle
“Kitamu” – Half Brioche Cuddler
This is a free knitting pattern designed by me. I hope you will have lots of fun using up those leftover bits of yarn with this easy cup cuddler pattern. I designed this quick knit Cup Cuddler pattern for a small size coffee cup but it can easily be adjusted for a larger one. If you find you want a looser fit, simply use the number of cast on stitches shown in the () parentheses. The cup cuddler is fun to make and knits up within about an hour. They are terrific for gift giving, too!

- Any worsted weight yarn, about 25 yards. I used: Leftovers of 1 Skein of Minnowknits
