Cabled Coffee Cup Cozy

After I did my first knitted cable test piece a while back, I did this coffee cozy, but seem to have forgotten to blog it. It´s been in my purse ever since and oftly used, both for hot and cold drinks. It´s an every day reminder that I can knit and cable knitting is much easier than it looks.

Here is a pattern I made up using a knitting needle nr 4 and some merino wool I had in my stash

K = Knit
P = Purl
[RS] = Right Side, the side facing you
[WS] = Wrong Side, the back side of your work
C8R = slip next 4 stiches to cable needle and hold back; K4, then K4 from cable needle
R = Row

Start with casting on 20 stiches
R1: [RS] K4 - P2 - K8 - P2 - K4
R2, 4, 6, 8: [WS] K6 - P8 - K6
R3: [RS] K4 - P2 - K8 - P2 - K4
R5: [RS] K4 - P2 - C8R - P2 - K4
R7: [Rs]  K4 - P2 - K8 - P2 - K4

Repeat row 1-8 untill your piece is about 9 inch long, ending off after Row 1. It´s about 9 times, you have to repeat the Rows 1-8.

Cast of and leave a long tail, use this one to sew the ends together and snug it then on your coffee cup :) 

A really good way to learn and show off your first knitted cables.

Have fun and feel free to use this for your personal use, link me back please if you do one and leave me a comment with a link so I can see your version too :)

Deutsche Übersetzung

R = rechter Maschen
L = linker Maschen
[VS] = Vorderseite
[RS] = Rückseite

Anschlag: 20 Maschen

Der Zopf selbst umfasst stets 8 Maschen, umgeben von jeweils 6 vor und hinter dem Zopf. 

1. Reihe: [VS] 4R - 2L - 8R - 2L - 4R
2., 4., 6., 8., Reihe: [RS] 6R - 8L - 6R
3. Reihe:  [VS] 4R - 2L - 8R - 2L - 4R
5. Reihe:  [VS] 4R - 2L - [4 Maschen auf die Zopfnadel, (hinter die Arbeit legen) 4 Maschen rechts stricken, die Maschen der Hilfsnadel rechts stricken]* 2L - 4R
7. Reihe:  [VS] 4R - 2L - 8R - 2L - 4R

Wiederhol die Reihen 1 - 8, bis der Zopf etwa 23cm lang ist, oder so lang das er um einen Kaffebecher passt. Die letzte Reihe ist eine 1. Reihe, danach kannst Du die Maschen abketten. Lass etwas von dem Faden übrig, weil Du damit das zusammennähen wirst. 

Viel erfolg. Ich habe Merinowolle verwendet und Nadelstärke 4.

Íslensk þýðing

S = Slétt
B = Brugðið
[FH] = Framhlið
[BH] = Bakhlið
C8R = næstu 4 lykkjum eru settar yfir á kaðalprjón, og settar fyrir aftan stykkið, síðan eru næstu 4 lykkjur prjónaðar slétt, að síðustu lykkjurnar 4 sem þú geymdir á kaðlaprjónsprjóninum. 

Kaðallinn er myndaður úr 8 lykkjum með 6 lykkjur fyrir framan og aftan hann.

Byrjið á að fitja upp 20 lykkjur

1. Röð: [FH] 4S - 2B - 8S - 2B - 4S
2., 4., 6., og 8. Röð: [BH]  6S - 8B - 6S
3. Röð: [FH] 4S - 2B - 8S - 2B - 4S
5. Röð: [FH] 4S - 2B - C8R - 2B - 4S
7. Röð: [FH] 4S - 2B - 8S - 2B - 4S

Þessar 8 raðir eru svo endurteknar, og endað á röð 1, þar til stykkið er ca. 23cm eða nógu stórt til að ná utan um brottfaramál. Fella af og skilja eftir langan enda, sem þú saumar svo fyrstu og síðustu umferð saman með.
