Candy Cane Cozy Coaster Pattern: Free!

Knitted/Felted Canada Goose is all dressed up for Christmas! He and the Gingerbread Man like the new Cozy Coaster for their glass of eggnog. Why don't you give it a try, too? Click here for the free pdf download.
It's knit completely in the round on size US 5 (3.75 mm) double-pointed needles, starting at the top. I used a wonderfully stretchy cotton yarn, Cascade Fixation, held together with a thin, glittery strand from Huntingdon Mills metallic yarns. As you can see, there is a built-in coaster right on the bottom!
No seaming necessary! The pattern makes one about 3.5 inches tall by 3.5 inches wide before allowing for stretching. If you have shorter glasses, you can always knit fewer rounds and begin to purl for the bottom earlier. And, of course, you could change your yarn colors to coordinate with your own decor or party theme.
Mrs. Scotty Dog and her baby pup have decided to join the fun!
Here are some great Christmas books to read while you're sipping your eggnog!
