Free Pattern: Owl Coffee Cozy

Looking for a quick stocking stuffer idea? Know people who really love coffee? This knit coffee cozies are quick and cute. I love home made coffee cozies. These cozies are insulating, cute, and reusable. They are also a great way to use up left over yarn, taking only about 50 yards to complete each one.
