By the Sea

Living near the coast, you can't not be inspired by the beautiful colours and landscapes. After my eldest sister claimed the first French Press cozy I designed, Candy Bobble, it left my Mum without a cozy. So, I decided to design her another one with the seaside theme in mind!

So, I give to you, friends and readers, By the Sea!

It is a quick, easy, fun and most importantly, cheap! knit. The pattern is available for free as a PDF download on Ravelry.

For the show knit, I used James C. Brett Top Value Double Knit in Turquoise. Which is  cheap yarn, but really good quality and I will definitely use them again. My Mum found the Seashell buttons by chance, and they work perfectly with the pattern.

For now, head on over to Tami's for more Fab Friday Finishes!! Have a great weekend everyone!

  3. I'm definitely putting this on my "to knit" list once I get better at knitting, I love the idea of cozying up my French press (...or my mom's, I don't actually own one of my own), and the texture looks really great.

  4. I love the texture. I have a french press and the only thing I don't like about it is that the coffee doesn't stay hot. I favorited the pattern. Thank you for sharing!
