Red yarn for the apple
Wool needle for sewing in the ends

From row 16 you are no longer knitting in the round, you are just knitting back and forth in rows as seen in the above photo.
Once you have cast off, pick up 2 stitches with your double pointed needles and knit an i-cord for a loop about 2 and a half inches long. (Just measure once you have sewn on your button to make sure of the length).
Sew the i-cord on to the top of the cozy where you picked up the 2 stitches and make a loop.
Sew in all your ends, sew on a sweet button opposite the loop, place an apple into your cozy and fasten the loop:)
You are finished!
