As you can see in the picture, it’s a nice and easy pattern you can use to whip up fast in any yarn you’d like (I still recommend cotton for anything kitchen/bath related), add your fancy button, and sell a ton of them at craft fairs!
I think they would make great stocking stuffers for Christmas, or a little addition to your holiday décor for Halloween, Christmas, any holiday!
The possibilities are endless!
WHAT YOU WILL NEED TO DO THIS PATTERN:
- #3 DK (LIGHT) Weight Yarn is perfect, but you can use any size cotton yarn you have in your stash and make less rows!
- Crochet Hook Size G (4 mm)
- Stitch Marker (optional)
Finished piece measures approx. 3’’ x 9’’
Chain 2 at the beginning does not count as a sc.
FSC – Foundation single crochet
Sc – single crochet
Sk – skip
SS – slip stitch
*to*–Repeat the instructions written between the two *
FO – fasten off
To start you can either:
Row 1: Ch15, 2sc in third chain from hook, *sk 1 ch, 2 sc in next ch* across
Row 2: turn, ch2, sk 1st sc, 2sc in next st, *sk next st, 2 sc in next st* across
Rows 3-33: repeat row 2.
Note, you can increase or decrease the length by working more or less rows.
Row 34 : turn, ch1, sc in next 7 st’s, chain 10, sc in same st as first chain (this creates the loop for the button), sc in each st across
Do not fasten off.
You can leave it as it is but I didn’t like the uneven edges that the ch2 made so I continued working around the cozy. Without turning I sc evenly (1 sc in each row) along the longer side, the bottom and up the second longer side making sure to put 2sc in each corner.
FO and sew in ends.
Position and sew the button.
