Here is the quickest knit EVER, in the history of the world. Just in time for the holidays. Coffee lover? Tea Drinker? Royalty in your life? Teachers? This is perfect for all of them.
Celebration Crown Coffee Cozy
- one ball of bon bon yarn Lion Brand
- 2.5mm needles (between a US 1 and 2) or size needed to get gauge. Don’t be daunted by the small needle. This is a quick knit.
- tapestry needle
Gauge: 6 stitches and 11 rows (slightly stretched) in 1 inch.
- basic increases and decreases
- S1 = slip 1 purlwise
- K = knit
- Kfb = Knit into front and back of the same stitch increasing one stitch
- Skpsso – Slip 1, knit 1, pass the slipped stitch over
- (xx) = the number of stitches on the needle at the end of the row
The anatomy of the crown: The points will be called “the top edge” and the bottom, the side that rests closest to the eyes, will be called “the bottom edge”.
This project is knit flat and then sewn into a circle at the end. Directions are given in rows.
Cast on 10 stitches.
Row 1: slip 1, knit 9 (always slip the first stitch on the bottom edge of the crown to give the base a smooth look)
Row 2: kfb, k9 (11)
Row 3: s1, k10
Row 4: kfb, k10 (12)
Row 5: s1, k11
Row 6: kfb, k11 (13)
Row 7: s1, k12
Row 8: kfb, k12 (14)
Row 9: s1, k13
Row 10: kfb, k13 (15)
Row 11: s1, k14
(This is the apex of a point. 15 stitches on the needle)
Row 12: skpsso, k13
Row 13: s1, k13
Row 14: skpsso, k12
Row 15: s1, k12
Row 16: skpsso, k11
Row 17: s1, k11
Row 18: skpsso, k10
Row 19: s1, k10
Row 20: skpsso, k9
Row 21: s1, k9 (10)
(This is the base of a point.)
Follow these 21 rows 5 times, making 5 points. Then cast off, and seam the crown together.
This is not a super tight fit on the cup. If your knitting on bigger needles, or have a looser gauge, consider going down to 4 points.
If you love this pattern, and you want to make one for yourself, this was inspired by the Knit Celebration Crown. Here, you can REALLY enjoy your royal status. And your love of the shimmer.
