First Time Knits Kits

Cup Warmer Knitting Kit - Project 2 from 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. There are different designs to choose from including the bear, fox and rabbit which all follow the same basic pattern, but there are variations for the ears. There will be enough yarn included in your kit to make several cup warmers.

You’ll need the First Time Knits book for the knitting pattern, if you don’t already have it, and then you use the materials in this kit to make your cup warmer. There’s an option to buy the kit with or without the book. This project is knitted using the knit stitch, but it also teaches you how to increase the number of stitches on a row.
