DIY Vegan: Angry Apple Cozy





Does your apple need protection from thieves and other villians? If the answer is yes, then the Angry Apple Cozy is just the man you need. This tough hombre means business - and has the mustache to prove it. With this guy on your side, nobody will come between you and your apple a day. The pattern for this cozy was originally posted on my blog, but I thought it would be fun to share it here too :) For those on Ravelry, here's the pattern link.
