Quick and Easy:

There's quick knitting, and then there's really quick knitting. This whole project can be done in less than an hour, and makes a perfect gift for the coffee lover in your life. Or make one for yourself and you'll get plenty of use out of it, too.

Materials:

  • a scrap, about 10 yards, of any super-bulky, 100 percent wool yarn (I used Rowan Big Wool in Cloak)
  • two pairs of size 13 US circular needles (any length, but shorter is easier to work with), or four size 13 double-pointed needles
  • scissors
  • crochet hook or tapestry needle

Gauge

About 3.25 stitches and 4 rows per inch.

Size

Finished size is 9 inches around and 3 inches tall. It should stretch to fit most standard-sized travel mugs.

Instructions:

  1. Using one needle, cast on 23 stitches. The long-tail method is a great choice since it is stretchy.
  2. Distribute the stitches onto two circular needles or three double-pointed needles.
  3. Join in the round, being careful not to twist the stitches.
  4. Knit every row until piece measures three inches.
  5. Bind off. Cut off excess yarn.
  6. Weave in ends.
