Seattle banned plastic, non-compostable straws on July 1, 2018. My inner Martha Stewart convinced me to knit a straw cozy to use to carry my new steel straw around with me, to use when I get a cold drink at a coffee shop.
This project took over an hour with fingering weight yarn…12 stitches on double pointed needles, knit to length, do a row of yarn overs every other stitch, then knit for another five rows and cast off. Make a two stitch I-Cord for the draw string.
A person who sews could make these a lot faster with scrap yarn.
