These are basically simple projects, but if you have never done circular knitting, a project with jute string is probably not a good place to start. Also, you will have to knit a swatch to determine how many stitches to cast on, and this can make beginner knitters nervous. Lastly, at the very end, you have to try the cozy on the pot to determine which row is the last, and this could be nerve-wracking as well. Enjoy ideas!!
