NIN Coffee Cozy {free Knitting Pattern}

The hubby loves NIN, so I designed this for him. This was made for a cup that is 8.75 inches around and does not increase in size (straight up and down).

This was my first encounter with graphs and Intarsia, but I absolutely love it. I now have much more respect for those who do intricate pictures in multiple colors in knitting! 😛

    Hi! I really enjoy your patterns, especially the beaded headband. I revised it to be a cute dog collar for my little terrier, too. BTW, what is NIN?

  2. Thank you so much! NIN is Nine Inch Nails, I made the pattern as they are my husband’s favorite band. I would love to see a picture of yours when it is done. That sounds super cute!

  3. I’m so excited to find this! Thanks for putting this out. NIN is my favorite band and my best friend’s. I’m definitely making this for him as a xmas gift and one for me too.
