After I posted yesterday about my crocheting slowing down considerably, I decided to peruse Pinterest to get some inspiration. I came away with an idea for a drink cozy. Yeah, I know - there's 50 million of them out there, but I needed something fairly simple to crochet to get my creative juices flowing again.
Here it is flat out:
And here it is on a coffee cup:
And here's the pattern:
- approximately 1 oz. worsted weight cotton (I used Peaches & Creme)
- I hook
- one elastic hair band
- one 1 1/4" button
- small amount sz. 10 thread
Size: 2 3/4" x 8 1/4" (not including hair band)
Note: I crochet tight, so you may need to adjust the size of your crochet hook.
Row 1: Join cotton with a sc around the hair band, sc around the hair band 4 more times. Ch 1, turn. (5 sc)
Row 2: 2 sc in 1st sc, sc in next 3 sc, 2 sc in last sc. Ch 1, turn. (7 sc)
Row 3: 2 sc in 1st sc, sc in next 5 sc, 2 sc in last sc. Turn. (9 sc)
Row 4: (sc, dc) in 1st sc. *skip next sc, (sc, dc) in next sc. Repeat from * across. Turn.
Rows 5 - 29: Skip 1st dc, (sc, dc) in next sc. *skip next dc, (sc, dc) in next sc. Repeat from * across. Turn. At end of Row 29, end off.
Weave in all ends.
Sew on button with sz. 10 thread.

When you're finished using your drink cozy - roll it up and put it in your purse.
