Emergency Lamppost Cozy

So, I the end of last week Saint Paul Cozy realized that there were going to be a few no-shows with lamppost cozies, so they put out a call for some emergency ones to made for drop-off on Sunday. I had a lot of yarn left from knitting mine and knew with some size 17US needles I could get something done on time. I was asked to make a cozy that fit a 24″ x 52″ post.

I kept it really simple and just did garter stitch with the yarn doubled. I worked flat this time, no time for steeking! I went for a rainbow look with the colors mixing together between changes. I really wish I had had some orange though!

I’m not sure where this one will go. The cozies will all be up along 4th St. in Saint Paul either by today or tomorrow. (The snowstorm Monday put things a little behind schedule.) I’m heading over this weekend and hope to get some good pictures.

The Pioneer Press had an article about the installation yesterday which you can see here. Apparently, we are brazen!

Lamppost Cozy is Done

As some of you might remember, I have been knitting a cozy for a lamppost as part of Saint Paul Cozy. I didn’t bring it with me over the holidays because it was so big and heavy, plus the yarn to knit it with, so I just finished it last week. Here it is in all its glory.

It is 60″ long and about 20″ wide. It went quite fast knit with doubled yarn and size 8US needles. Here are a few close ups of the patterns.


The cozy’s will go up along 4th Street in Saint Paul sometime between January 21 – 23. They will stay up through the first week of March right through Winter Carnival. If you want to check mine out, it will be 4th St. between Sibley & Jackson on the south side. I can’t wait to see the whole street done up in colorful cozies!
