Cozy. Knitting help website has been great. I'm self taught and having been knitting for a few months. You can knit flat and seam it together or you can use circulars and join in the round which there are TONS of tutorials for! Good luck and have fun!

A great place to get a beginner pattern for a cozy is on http://www.ravelry.com/. You can join groups on there too which have tons of help for beginners. It really helped my daughter out when she was starting out.

 Depending on the size of your needled I would cas on say 10-12 stitches, just knit back and forth until you reach the length you like, just put it up to a cup and measure, cast off when you reach the length you want and either "sew" it together or sew a button on and put a piece of yarn on the other side (make a loop and tie off your ends, loop it thorugh a stitch, make sure to leave your ends long enough to sew in and sew them in).  If you have circular needles you can knit in the round, but measure how long you need it, cast on and continue to knit around and around until you reach the length you want.

Here is n AWESOME website, I use it all the time, this link is directly to the cup cozies, but it you click "free pattern directory" in the top middle it will take you back to their main menu.  http://www.knittingpatterncentral.com/directory/cozies.php
