Noro Kureyon Felted Latte Sock ( Hot Coffee Cozy) Pattern


I'm not usually a big fan of "cozies," but I am a big fan of coffee and I'm not a big fan of burning my hands on hot coffee in a paper cup, insulated only by a thin, disposable cardboard jacket. For this reason, I decided to knit and felt my own eco-friendly, reusable Latte Sock. It insulates as well as a pot holder, since it's felted wool, and wool is naturally very absorbent, so it catches any drips of hot coffee before they can burn your hands. It's also stylish as all hell, and you can make it in any color of Noro Kureyon that you want!

The pattern is quick, fun, and uses less than a quarter of a ball of Noro Kureyon. It's easy and is a great first project to knit in the round, to try out double-pointed needles for the first time, and to try felting for the first time! Since Kureyon has many subtle color changes in each ball, you can knit several from the same ball, and they'll all be different! It's just big enough to show off about 3 color changes in each Latte Sock.

Way, way less than 1 ball of Noro Kureyon
