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.
I love it and very clever....I made one not to long ago but your is by far the best! I think I will give this a go myself. Thanks, ShariReplyDelete
It's very "happy coloured"and easy to make. Most of the time the most simple things are the most useful; this is a wonderful example! Well done!ReplyDelete

happy sunday Mrs Debi,this is a great idea ...i will be making it soon,so I can keep one in my car for those rushing mornings....Love the idea....simple and great.....useful.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the idea.:0)
We all need a break ever once in a while. You are always creating the most wonderful things. Sometimes it is nice just to do something small. That's mostly what I do -- one of these days I'm gonna have to actually do something big. Ha! Best wishes to you! TammyReplyDelete
Thank you Tammy. A baby blankie would be a good project - it's not too small, but not too big either. :)Delete
Oh it's so cute! Love your pattern, as always! Thank you so much for sharing!ReplyDelete
Really lovely! Haven't seen one with a button before - maybe I need to make one! ^.^ReplyDelete
Nice one! I've never seen one before with a hairband :D such a great idea!ReplyDelete
So colorful and summery it looks. Would deff try it soon, thanks for the pattern!ReplyDelete

Very pretty and a creative idea for the closing, love it!!ReplyDelete
Thanks for linking up your cozy on Monday Funday! I love it because you can roll it up and put it in your purse to take with you or even put it in a drawer and it won't take up much room.ReplyDelete
I love how the stitch looks in those colours, thanks for sharing very handy....ReplyDelete
