Yarn Cozy

My travel knitting for our trip to Colorado and Utah will be a pair of socks. As I wound the wool for these socks into center pull balls, I thought of Susan B. Anderson's fruit cozy pattern. She recently suggested that it could double as a yarn cozy. I decided to test it for myself.


She was right. It fits my apple-sized ball of yarn perfectly and will keep it intact in my backpack, no matter how full it gets.

Free Pattern: Pear Apple Cozy
Yarn: Red Heart Sport
Color: 0652 Limeade
Needles: US 5 DPNs


More about the sock next time. Off to finishing packing. We leave tomorrow.

  4. I just never know what will pop up on your blog. :) That is really genuis, cute, and funny all at the same time. I love small projects. I feel so productive.

  5. It's so cute! I love the color, too. It's so bright that you'll easily spot it when digging around in that backpack. ;-)

    I wish I were going with you to the mountains. Think of us poor Texans whithering in the heat while you're probably needing a jacket or sweater. ;-Þ

    Seriously, have a great time, and bring us back pictures from the Wool Market in Estes Park, please! :-)

  6. Brilliant, mind if I knit up one or two I think my girls would really love one. They are always fishing around for their wool when we are traveling. Have a great and safe trip and happy knitting :)

  7. I love this little cozy - I haven't attempted double-pointed needles - are they difficult to master?? They seem very intimidating to a novice like me but I am willing to give anything a try at least once!! Hope you have a wonderful trip.

    I think fishing around for anything is time well spent!

  14. That is so cute. I have given all of my cozies away so I'll have to knit a few more for my yarn cakes. I am glad you are putting the idea to use.
    Have fun,
