The Adventurer Collection is all about traveling, exploring, & new experiences, but I’ve found that sometimes it’s nice to have a little bit of home with you when doing all these fun & crazy things. You can throw this cute little coffee cozy in your purse & whip it out whenever you get a coffee on-the-go, & always have a little bit of home with you. It’s a quick knit, a great first brioche project, & excellent for using up scrap fingering weight yarn!
