Just in time for some last-minute holiday knitting or crocheting: two free cozy patterns! Fast, inexpensive, useful, thoughtful, and one-size-fits-all, cozies make fantastic gifts for even the fussiest recipients. Who wouldn’t like to keep their hot drinks hot and their cool drinks cool?

 

#510 Fancy Mug Cozy

This elegant, ever-so-slightly-lacy knit mug cozy is great for grabbing a mug of hot cocoa. Since it’s worked sideways, it can be knit to fit any size mug. A simple cast-on button loop keeps it snug and secure around a mug handle. One skein of Valley Yarns Superwash is all it takes, making it a soft, washable, and quite economical gift.

#511 Jar, Bottle, or Can Cozy

For years, students and other resourceful thrifters have been reusing jars as travel mugs, thermoses and lunch containers. Celebrate their good recycling habits by crocheting them this very quick and handy cozy.

The base acts as a built-in coaster while the sides insulate. A roomy side strap is perfect for clipping onto a bag or belt loop while the top stability strap holds it in place. Eyelets underneath the side strap help you see inside. But it’s not just for drinking out of jars. It can easily accommodate bottles, cans, or adorn your home-canned gifts. Using only about 50 yards of Valley Yarns Northampton, you can easily get three or four cozies from just one skein!
