Diary of a Design
So, given the popularity of 'cozies' (tea cozy, iPod cozy, cell phone cozy) I got an idea about a cozy to make. It begins with two triangles and one circle, knitted out of Berroco Hip Hop.
Then sew the circle to the top of the tube. Add a jaunty icord knot at the top.
The part with the two inch (prefelted) openeing at the top? That's where the spout goes. The big opening on the other side? That's where the handle goes.
There is a slight design flaw, in that once it is felted it is really a struggle to get it over the french press (on the handle side). However, this can be fixed by opening up the bottom two inch (pre felt) seam on the handle side.
So there you go. What do you think?
