First Time Knits Kits

Project 2 Cup Warmer Kit - First Time Knits

The second project from First Time Knits is a cup warmer, which is perfect for keeping your reusable coffee cup warm and cute. This project is knitted using the knit stitch, but it also teaches you how to increase the number of stitches on a row. This kit includes all the knitting materials you'll need to make the cup warmer. There are three designs to choose from including the bear, fox and rabbit which all follow the same basic pattern, but there are variations for the ears. All you have to do is choose your yarn colour and then your design. 

The pattern for the cup warmer is in the First Time Knits book
