This knitted Drink Cozy Pattern turns your favorite beverage into a unicorn. The base of the cozy is made with knit and purls in the Reverse Ridge Stitch Pattern. Then we add a cute little mane of yarn tassels in any colors of your choice.
I hope you enjoy this quick-knit to make as gifts for your most fanciful friends.
