This pattern is designed to fit a standard 8 cup French press with a diameter of 4 inches. The pattern can easily be adapted to make a taller or shorter cozy. Just add or subtract the number of stitches you cast on by 4 when altering the pattern to your desired height. If you want to make a cozy for a press with a larger diameter knit additional sets of the pattern sequence until desired width is achieved.
