Coffee Couture

Coffee Couture by Megan Longhurst from Yarn 6.
MATERIALS: Just under 50g of an 8ply recycled from an op-shop jumper.

ALTERATIONS: None, but I'm tossing up about picking up some of the side stitches and making a button placket for added warmth.

It's a lovely quick knit. Perfect for last minute gifts. Not that there's anything last minute about this one - it's a 2008 Christmas gift for coffee loving friends. Oh, and I've added the pattern to Ravelry if you want to queue it.

I've got to make another of these, but larger, this week for Dad's birthday on Thursday. Will cast on tonight.

Lovely : ) What did you use for the buttons on this one? (Yes, have just read the red cosy entry.) And did you do another side placket?

I didn't do buttons on this one - I've decided it's a prototype and should be left as is. OK, I'm too lazy to be bothered, but there will be more of these cosies, it such a great pattern.
