Pattern Notes
This french press cozy has been designed to fit a Bodum Chambord 4 cup french press. If you have a larger or smaller sized press this pattern can be easily adapted to fit.
You may add or subtract the number of stitches in a repeat from the cast on and still easily read the written directions. If you are using the chart, you can print two copies, fold one so that it repeats the correct number of stitches to see the chart for the new size. If your press is bigger around you also add extra garter stitch rows at the end, or use a second photocopy of the chart to increase the number of patterned rows until the fabric is long enough. You may also need to adjust the placement of the buttonhole yarn overs, depending on where your handle rests on your press.
