Hey Dearies! So, today I have another super easy pattern for you all! Since we are still in the hot weather in Maine, I figured we would make some can cozies for our soda cans! This also goes with a set, so next week, I’ll show you all how to make the coasters that go with them!
If you are just starting out, this is going to be perfect for you! Especially if you don’t want to just make a dishcloth, which is what most crocheters recommend to start out.
Let’s talk about what you will need:
- Medium Yarn
- I’m going to be using a multi-colored yarn from Red Heart. I forgot what it was called since I lost the label for it.
- 5.0 mm hook
- Sewing needle
- Stitch Marker
Round 1: Chain 2. Make 7 single crochets in the 2nd chain from your hook. Do NOT join, we will be working into a spiral. (7sc)
Make sure you place a stitch marker at the end of each row. Move the marker up after each row is completed. This will help you stay on track.
Round 2: 2 single crochet in the next 6 single crochets, single crochet in the last single crochet. (13 sc)
Round 3: *Single crochet in the next single crochet, 2 single crochet in the next single crochet* Repeat 6 times. Single crochet in the last single crochet. (19 sc)
Round 4: *Single crochet in the next 2 single crochets, 2 single crochets in the next single crochet* Repeat 6 times. Single crochet in the last single crochet. (25 sc)
Round 5: *Single crochet in the next 3 single crochets, 2 single crochet in the next single crochet* Repeat 6 times. 2 single crochets in the last single crochet. (32 sc)
Round 6: Working in the back loops only. Single crochet in each single crochet around.
Round 7: Single crochet around. Repeat until your project reaches your desired length. I’ll be crocheting until I reach about 3.5 inches tall.
Last Round: Slip stitch in each single crochet around. Fasten off and weave in all loose ends.
There it is! Sadly, I didn’t have any cans to actually use and show you how it would look, but I tried my best to shape it so it looks like it was holding a can. I think these are super cute and fun to make or have for guest to use!
Make sure you see next weeks blog post, it will go along with this pattern. It’s a coaster that is perfect for this can cozies!
