Jack-o-Lantern Coffee Cozy Tutorial

  'Tis the season for hot cider and pumpkin spice lattes! To add some extra Halloween cheer to my coffee, I whipped up this Jack-o-Lantern Cozy. It's a pretty fast project, able to be completed in a Netflix marathon.

- Worsted Weight Yarn (I used Vanna's Choice)
- Size 5 DPNs 
- Small bits of black felt

Cup Sleeve:
Cast on 40 stitches and join, ensuring the stitches did not get twisted. 

*K7, P1* 5 times around
Repeat until the sleeve measures about 3 inches high, then bind off. This was about 18 rows for me. Sew in ends. 

Jack-o-lantern Face:
Cut two small triangles (about 1/2 inch high) and the mouth of your choice out of felt.

In one of the flat stockinette sections pin your felt pieces into place, then hand-sew them to the knitted cloth using a running stitch. This allows the knit to still stretch, but not completely pull the felt out of whack.

Place your favorite fall beverage into the sleeve and enjoy!
