While I was trying to think of something to crochet for St. Patrick’s day, I remembered my Beer Cozies crochet pattern and knew it was perfect! Even if your beer isn’t green, your cozy can still be festive! ;) If you’d like to make your own, you can find my free crochet pattern right here, which includes two different styles, “spikes” and “stripes”.
I dug through my yarn stash and pulled out my favorite greens, oranges and white! For these I used: Caron Simply Soft Party in spring sparkle and snow sparkle, Caron Simply Soft in mango and soft green and Red Heart Soft Yarn in dark leaf and tangerine.
For the shamrock appliques, I bought a variety of green, white and gold felt. I Googled “shamrock outline” and printed out one I liked after sizing it to be around 2 inches wide. I cut out the shamrock and using it as a pattern, traced it onto the felt using a marker. I then cut them out, making some that were just a bit larger than the others so I could layer them. Then I used fabric glue to glue them onto the cozies. Tip: put a can in the cozy before you glue.
I hope you have fun with this and if you make any, I’d love to see! Don’t forget to hashtag #gleefulthings on Instagram or Twitter so I can see what you make with my patterns :)
