Coffee Press Cosy x2

Here's a project I have dusted off and moved to the completed pile, 2 coffee press cosies.  I made one for my extra large press:

And one for my smaller press:

This was a really quick and easy knit (even though it has been hibernating for quite a while...)  My favorite part of the entire project was the hand-painted wood buttons:

Here are the pattern details:
Pattern:  Subtle Stripes Cafetière Cosy by Susan Hanlon/Yellow Ginger Designs.  Free pattern available here.
Yarn:  Cascade 220 Paint, colorway 9926 maroon
Needles:  US 8/5.0 mm
Buttons:  Dahlia and Jasmine available from my website.
I cast on 40 for the larger press and 30 for the smaller press.  I made a simple crochet loop for the larger press button loop and for the smaller press buttonholes:  K2tog, YO.
