French Press Cozy

French Press Cozy

Erica Jackofsky

Wrap your french press in its own crocheted blanket. A french press cozy makes a good beginner crochet project that is easily completed in a weekend. It is not necessary to work a gauge swatch for this project. Simply work a few rows of the pattern and then measure the width to see if it matches the finished dimensions of the cozy. If your piece is too big, go down a hook size. Too small? Try a larger crochet hook.
