I have a chronic illness that necessitates the use of a wheelchair or cane. Although my cane is pink (my favouritist colour ever!), it was feeling a bit naked. So this pattern for a cane cozy came about in order to dress it up a bit. Happy Knitting!


This pattern is written for knitting in the round using the magic loop method (although the purchaser could easily adapt it for two circulars or double points).

This pattern includes written instructions.

The long-tail cast-on and basic bind-off (or Kitchener stitch) are used in this pattern.

This pattern has the options of either a ribbed ending or a Kitchener stitch ending.

The knitter needs to be comfortable with the following techniques: knit, purl, knit two together (k2tog), and SKP.
