Free Knitting Patterm

Half Brioche Cuddler

This is a free knitting pattern designed by me. I hope you will have lots of fun using up those leftover bits of yarn with this easy cup cuddler pattern. I designed this quick knit Cup Cuddler pattern for a small size coffee cup but it can easily be adjusted for a larger one. If you find you want a looser fit, simply use the number of cast on stitches shown in the () parentheses. The cup cuddler is fun to make and knits up within about an hour. They are terrific for gift giving, too! 

Finished Measurements: Approximately 3 ” x 8 ¾ “

  •   Any worsted weight yarn, about 25 yards. I used: Leftovers of 1 Skein of Minnowknits
  •   Size 6 US, 4” short double point knitting needles.
  • 1 Stitch Marker
  • Tapestry needle
Beg – beginning
B.O. – Bind off
C.O. – Cast-on
K, k – Knit
P, p – Purl
Rep – repeat
St (sts) – stitch (stitches)
Irb – in row below; knit one in the next stitch in the row below.                                                                                 

Pattern: (Worked in the round)
Place a stitch marker at beg of the round.
C.O. 32 (36 ) sts and join round.
Round 1: Purl
Round 2: *K1, k1-irb; rep from *.
Round 3: Purl
Round 4: *K1-irb, k1; rep from *.
Repeat rounds 1-4 for pattern until piece measures 3” from beg. B.O. loosely in pattern, break yarn, tie off, weave in ends.

  1. Thank you for this!
    I am just starting knitting so I need small projects to practice.

  2. I was looking for something cool to do with my bits and bobs of leftover yarn - this is a great idea, and super cute! Thanks!

  3. Thanks for this free pattern! It looks like it'll be a fun & quick project for gift-giving! I noticed that your Leaf Cuddler pattern on Etsy says "Sold" and was marked as free. I would love to receive that PDF pattern as well, if you're willing to share it. I couldn't email you through Etsy, so please contact me at wendy dot abel at sbcglobal dot net if you're open to sending it. Thank you!

  4. Love this! I just wanted to let you know that I've included this in our knitting roundup on the FaveCrafts Blog:
