Knit koozies have become quite popular in Houston in the last few months. After seeing some quite boring koozies at various local hotspots, I decided I should come up with some jazzier varieties. Since then I’ve made koozies with cables, lace, camo, school logos, and my most popular creation, Batman. I’ll disperse some of the other patterns in the blog in coming months, but for now, here is Batman.
Disclaimer: Feel free to make this pattern for your personal use, for your platypus, for charity, or to sell. The only thing I ask is that you please do not sell it on Etsy. If you are interested in purchasing a koozie from my Etsy store, you may do so here.

*Note* After joining the yellow, I twisted the yarn on the wrong side every two or three stitches. Long sections of yarn inside of the work make it difficult to place a glass inside.

To finish, pull a loop through all 6 stitches on needle and pull tight. Work in ends.
Time Required: 2 Movies
The knitting is very quick. Twisting the yarn behind the project is the largest time-suck.
Overall Experience: Excellent
This is a quick project. I carry one around in my purse to put on my glass when I go places. I think someone has asked me about it every time I’ve used it.
