Coffee cosy

Cafetiere Cosy The pink and lime yarns were sitting next to each other in my scrap yarn box and I thought they looked good together.  The lime is also an exact match for my cafetiere so I added some leftover blue and made this coffee cosy.  I didn’t use a pattern; the only pattern I’ve seen is from a book by Nicki Trench but it is for a cafetiere with a handle attachment point in the middle of the jug which allows the cover to button above the handle.  On mine, however, the handle attaches at the top.  The cosy is made with double crochet throughout (DK yarn with 4mm hook) and this has produced a fairly stiff  fabric which supports its own weight.  If  I originally planned to use poppers rather than buttons which is why there are tabs for fastening: they were an afterthought!
