Here's a tissue cozy I designed, zakka style. Just in time for cold season.

Directions
Cast on 40 stitches (leave a tail for sewing)
knit 24 rows of rib stitch (K1 P1)

your piece should measure roughly 6” by 4 3/4”

Thank you for (as always) the cute, clever craft idea. It was the HIT of our knitting group's mystery-knitter gift exchange, and so fun to make!

I have just knitted up half a dozen of these in different yarns and with different buttons. All wooden or metal buttons, in keeping with the vintage look! They are fantastically easy to make, and the results are sweet. Thanks for the great idea!
