This easy cable crochet cafetiere cosy is the perfect accessory to the easy cable mug cosy that I released as a free pattern last week. It uses the same crochet cable stitch as the mug cosy so you can reference the youtube tutorial to check where you should place your stitches.
I made both cosies in this lovely mellow yellow Stylecraft Belissma but you can mix and matchto create a beautifully bright and warm coffee table.
2 x 1.5 cm diameter “handmade with love” buttons
It will fit a standard 2 cup cafetiere. (diameter approx. 10 cm, depth approx. 15 cm)
If you have a larger cafetiere, you can make this cosy fit by adding extra dcs at the start and finish of each row and/or by repeating cable pattern more times.
The pattern is written using UK terminology, for a conversion chart to US terminology click this link.
