Doodle cafetiere cosy
The Doodle cafetiere cosy was inspired by doodling spirals. I added a simple border and a corrugated rib. Then I played around with a colour palette using Spindrift from Jamieson’s of Sheltand.
The Doodle cafetiere cosy featues feature stranded colourwork patterns. You knit Doodle in the round from lower rib to upper rib, then cut the steek. Now, cutting your carefully worked knitting may seem terrifying, but really it’s not! Spindrift is a woolly yarn, so doesn’t unravel. And once you finish your steek, the stitches are really secure and neat. You finish Doodle by adding a button and button loop. Then put the kettle on and make some coffee!
You could make one for yourself, or as a gift or give the Doodle cafetiere cosy kit to a coffee-loving knitter.
The pattern for the Doodle cafetiere cosy is available as part of a kit.
The kit contains:
- An A5 printed pattern booklet for Doodle cafetiére cosy;
- Sufficient Jamieson’s Spindrift to knit to knit the cosy, as well as a small amount of a smooth similar weight waste yarn;
- A button.
- 1 set 3.25 mm (UK 10 | US 3) double pointed needles or 80 cm long circular needle if using the Magic Loop method.
- Stitch markers.
- Yarn needle.
Cafetiere circumference: 23 cm | 9 inches.
Height: 13 cm | 5 inches.

32 sts and 33 rounds per 10 cm | 4 inches over stranded colourwork stocking stitch using 3.25 mm needles.
Intermediate knitter (you can cast on and off, knit and purl, work stocking stitch and rib, knit in the round and follow a simple pattern).
This pattern is available in two versions: there’s one written for those who knit left-handed as well as the standard one for those who knit right-handed.
Most of you knit right-handed, that is, your stitches move from the left to right needle as you knit: choose “knitting right-handed”.
Some of you knit left-handed, that is, your stitches move from the right to left needle as you knit: choose “knitting left-handed”.
If you are a left-handed knitter who knits right-handed, that is your stitches move from the left to right needle, you should choose “knitting right-handed”.
