Knit Can Cozy

I knit a cover for a large can. I used a black worsted weight yarn along with a ladder or railroad track type of yarn held together.
I have made quilted can cozies before, but I wanted to knit one this time.
I used a black yarn and a rainbow colored ladder yarn held together. Up close this yarn looks more like charcoal, but it is really black.

I cut a hole in the plastic lid so that I could use it as a yarn holder to while I knit.
Put a ball or skein of yarn into the can...
...snap the lid in place and now the ball of yarn won't roll around the floor as I knit.
Pin It Now!


  1. Nice cover, and a brilliant idea. :-) Thank you.

  2. Hi Daryl, I love that you transformed your can cozy into a place for a ball of yarn. its very practical because you can take the lid off, you might want to add a thin slit in the lid so if you wanted you could take a project out while its still on the needles.. the yarn is very festive. great job

  3. I like your can, that's a good idea.
    Love the yarn! Thanks for sharing :)

  4. Fabulous upcycle and project. Your yarn combo is lovely. Knitting Bliss...

  5. Thats a good idea and the yarn is so pretty.

  6. Ha what a clever idea Daryl, I'm loving it:)

  7. What a GREAT idea and so, so cute!!!!! I've got to make one :)

  8. Countless people derive euphoric thrills from playing or watching the game of basketball. Regardless of your understanding of basketball, there is always room to gain more knowledge of the sport. | | | | |
