My first knitted cozy, for the approaching cold nights of Winter. It looked much too small as I knit it. I persevered somewhat nervously, hoping it was just the cables making it appear so. Thankfully, once blocked on a full hot water bottle, the cables relaxed and the cozy took shape. The colour change was unintentional. The navy yarn, had been a remnant of a previous project. When I ran out I picked out another left over yarn. I quite like the colour blocking though.
Next time I would knit the bottom band in 3x3 ribbing, or else use a size smaller needle, as I think the band ended up being a little too big.
