Uncomplicated french press cozy (free pattern)

So… I “designed” a pattern for a french press cozy. If you’re like me and you take a long time to enjoy your coffee, you may find that the coffee tends to get cold pretty quickly. (No insulation!) This is my solution to the problem. I picked a really bright color that looks cheerful and probably won’t show stains very much. It’s just like the name says: uncomplicated. (As a matter of fact, it’s so uncomplicated that it’s practically not even a pattern.)

Uncomplicated French Press Cozy (to fit a 6″ tall press with a 10″ diameter)

Ingredients:
Brown Sheep Lamb’s Pride Bulky (or whatever bulky wool yarn you want.) The color I used is “Aztec Turquoise.”
Size 10.5 needles (6.5 mm)
Size N crochet hook (9 mm)
Gauge: 12 sitches=4″ in seed stitch
——
Cast on 19 sts, work in seed stitch (k1, p1 every row) for 10″. Bind off.
In each corner of the rectangle, chain 10 with size N hook. Find the center of the cast-on side and chain 10 there. Do the same on the bind-off side. (click here to see a picture if you’re confused)
Weave in the ends and you are ready to keep your coffee cozy! You could block it if you really want the crocheted chains to look nice, but I didn’t bother.

      Is this for a 10” circumference or 10” diameter? My French press is neither, but closer to a 10” circumference (which it said on ravelry). Thanks! I look forward to making one of my own. 🙂

    Is there a video on how to attach the chain to the ends. I’m not sure how to do this. Thanks
