Grandma’s Doorknob Cozy – free pattern!

Hello everyone!  I do have some FOs to share with you all but today I want to share a new free pattern I’ve written up.  It’s called “Grandma’s Doorknob Cozy” because it was literally inspired by a doorknob cozy that my grandma had:

Me as a little one with my uncle at Grandma's house.  You can see the doorknob cozy there.

I’d completely forgotten about the doorknob cozies she had around the house until I saw that photo a few weeks ago and noticed it there in the background.  Then I remembered how the cozies would sometimes slip on the doorknob if it wasn’t secured tightly enough, and I remembered wondering why on earth they were even there.  Well, now I suppose that since metal doorknobs are cold in the winter (especially if you’re only heating a room or two at a time), a cozy makes sense.  Don’t want to make your hands colder than necessary!  I do also think that they add a sort of farmhouse/cottage charm, so naturally I wanted to make my own.  So without further ado, here’s my modern take.  I hope you like it!
