Georgius: Coffee Cup Cosy Variation
Here are the instructions for the George Coffee Cup Cosy in the stitch pattern Roman Rib: Georgius, if you will. It’s a stitch pattern that looks pretty complicated but is very easy to knit and makes a dense fabric which is great for coffee cup insulation.
Georgius Coffee Cup Cosy

Row 1: knit all stitches
Row 2: k3, yo, k2tog, k to end
Row 3: purl all stitches
Row 4: kfb, *k1, p1* to last stitch, kfb
