Glass Bottle Cozy

My Last trip to the Library I found a knitting book I'd never noticed on it's shelves before over the past month that i've been raiding the Libraries shelves of kniting pattern book. The book being "Knitting With Balls: A Hands-On Guide to Knitting for the Modern Man" by Michael Del Vecchio. I've chosen first to make the 3 cross cable "beer cozy". The pattern seems to be missing an increase row. So I added another row of yarn overs for row 12 instead of stopping at row 10 because I ended up with 31 stitches after row 10 instead of the 36 needed. I also ended up knitting 4 cable rows and finishing off with two rows of the pattern after the last cable row to match the two rows of pattern before the first cable row. And at the very top of the cozy to finish off I knitted one inch of knit and then flipped it over to make a collar of sorts. My gauge was 7 rows per inch.
