Because all coffee pots deserve to be cosy. Here are ours in their wintertime cosieshere and here. Oh, they look remarkably similar. The pattern is Cafetière Coffee Cosy from Jenny Lord's Purls of Wisdom. This is an easy pattern to adapt according to dimensions of coffee pot in need of cosying by changing the number of repeats. After the first cosy knitted I chose not to include the button loops, instead just poking the buttons through a gap in the stitches.
The next is one made for the other Mrs Robinson as a Christmas gift - the other Mr Robinson isn't such a fan of coffee, so a mini coffee pot parcelled up with some delicious coffee seemed just the thing. Again, the wool is from the basket (so satisfying) and is Jamieson's Shetland Spindrift held double with sock yarn left over from making Em's socks
