Good day Readers!
I am so excited about this pattern that I have designed. This yarn cake cozy have really changed the way I knit or crochet for the better.
These cozies have been designed to be used with a double knit 100g yarn cake so that I can use the center of the cake and the cozy keep the yarn contained until the yarn is finished! It is like magic!
The pattern is written in UK terms and here it is!
What you will need:
- 30 g of Double Knit Yarn (11 wpi)
- 4mm Crochet Hook
- Wool Needle to weave in ends
Abbreviations and special stitches:
sl st – slip stitch
ch – chain
dc – double crochet
tr – treble
tr2tog – treble 2 together
ftr – foundation treble
fptr – front post treble
bptr – back post treble
Start by making a magic circle or 4 ch and slip into the first ch to join in the round
Row 1: 3 ch (this does not count as a stitch!) 12 tr into the circle, pull close and join with sl st into first treble (over the ch stitches) [ 12 tr ]
Row 2: 3 ch (this does not count as a stitch!) 2 tr into each tr and join with sl st into first treble (over the ch stitches) [ 24 tr ]
Row 3: 3 ch (this does not count as a stitch!) *1 tr into next st, 2 tr into next st* repeat from * to * and join with sl st into first treble (over the ch stitches) [ 36 tr ]
Row 4: 3 ch (this does not count as a stitch!) 1 tr into each stitch until the last 2 stitches. tr2tog, sl st into first tr of row. [ 35 tr ]
Row 5 : Make 1 bptr around the post created by the 3 ch of the previous row by using the foundation stitch method, 1 fptr, 1 bptr into each stitch, join with a sl st into first fptr – not into the foundation bptr.
Row 6 : Make 1 bptr around the post of the foundation bptr by using the foundation stitch method, 1 fptr around each fptr, 1 bptr around each bptr st until you reach the end of the row, join with a sl st into first fptr – not into the foundation bptr.
Repeat this row another 8 times [ 10 rows of ribbing in total ]
Edge the yarn cozy by doing one row of crab stitch all around.
Weave in all the loose ends and you are ready to use your cozy!
