Drink cozies are awesome in the summer! They catch the condensation, keep you from freezing your hand on your cold drink, keep your drink cold, and act as a traveling coaster for your gatherings.

While playing around with mitered squares to make coasters, I realized they could be made with an even or odd number of stitches, depending on how the decreases are made. So, rather than making that choice for you, I thought I would write a double pattern for you today. One mitered square coaster that starts with an even number of stitches and uses two decreases in the center, and one mitered square coaster that starts with an odd number of stitches and uses a double decrease in the center. Of course, there are still many more ways to make a mitered square, these are just my current favorites for evens and odds.
