Free Snowman Cup Cozy Crochet Pattern

Hello! I recently found some great buttons in the craft section of my local Walmart. I decided that they would be perfect for a snowman cup cozy. I wrote my own pattern and thought I'd share it with you.


Snowman Cup Cozy 



Hook: E 3.5mm or hook that works for you for a fairly tight stitch for your yarn.,
Yarn: Peaches N Cream 100% cotton (kitchen cotton) Worsted Weight (4)
Special Stitch: Camel stitch or hdc in back hump only. Video of stitch found here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wmJorQch4D0
Notions: Two black buttons for eyes, carrot button for nose.

Notes: You have two options for closing the cuff into a circle, you can slip stitch the ends together and weave in ends or use your beginning tail to sew the bottom cuff and your end to sew the top cuff. If you choose to sew leave your ends long enough to sew and weave in ends.

 Instructions:


Bottom cuffs: ch6, turn sc in back loop only (5sc). Ch1 turn, sc in Blo. Repeat until the cuff is long enough to go around the cup (approximately 8.5”). Do not finish off.
Slip stitch one stitch of cuff to the beginning to form a circle. ch1 and rotate to work in row ends. If sewing cuff closed, leave it until you have a few rows done or are finished. If slip stitching, slip stitch the two ends together, ch 1 and rotate to work in row ends.

Body: This knit look middle section is done in camel stitch
Round 1: hdc evenly in row ends.
Rounds 2-7: Hdc in back hump of Hdc below (camel stitch). Join to first hdc with slip stitch, ch1. Round 8: Sc in back hump of each Hdc.

Top cuff: ch6, sc in second ch from hook and next 4, sc in next 2 sc. *Turn, skip 2 sc and sc in next 5 in Blo. Ch1, turn, sc in next 5 Blo, sc in next 2 (both loops). Repeat from * around.

Finishing: Finish off and if you didn't slip stitch your cuffs, use end to sew closed the cuff. Use the beginning tail to sew closed the bottom cuff. Sew eyes on to the side opposite your seam.

    2. Marsha is absolutely correct, Rounds 1-7 are done in camel stitch which looks knitted, but is 100% crocheted. Check out this video from The Crochet Crowd for instructions on that particular stitch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wmJorQch4D0

  6. Min: BLO stands for back loop only. Instead of going under both loops of your single crochet, only use the back one. Like the bottom cuff you'll be going back and forth vertically. When you get to the end of your row closest to the body of the cozy, you'll put two sc in the top of the cozy to connect the cuff to the body. Turn and work back up the cuff.

  9. Row 1-7 isn't looking like the pic, I have the v's on the outside side. However they don't look to be stacking nicely there a gap between the v's. Wish there was a video of this to see what I maybe doing wrong.
