Trio of Key Cozies made with the key cozy pattern

I invented this tiny key cozy pattern one day when I was showing my mom about Magic Loop.

She asked, “What is Magic Loop good for?”

I said, “It is especially good for knitting little tiny objects in the round, like glove fingers, arm warmers, and the tops of hats.”

Then, as inspiration struck, I asked, “Do you have a key? I’ll make a little sweater for it to demonstrate!” and the sock yarn key cozy pattern was born.
