These drink cozies are perfect for any drink and occasion! Perfect for using up yarn scraps, the Iced Coffee Cozy works up quickly and effortlessly. Included in the free pattern is a complete video tutorial on how to make the cozy along with instructions for adjusting the pattern to fit any jar size!
It has been too long since I last released a crochet pattern. Between other work-related projects, and life outside of this job, I have not had the time or the mental capacity to release new patterns (but of course, the design ideas never stopped flowing into my head!). This cozy design felt like an appropriate pattern to be my first release in several months. It is quick and easy to crochet, with endless color and striping options, and it is the perfect way to use up scraps of yarn!
Like many of my crochet designs, this drink cozy crochet pattern has been in my head for quite awhile. I started making my own iced coffee last year, and have discovered the usefulness of drink cozies. I am now a crochet drink cozy girl for life. I love how the color options are endless, and can I just say, crochet cozies are so cute?!?!
But of course I knew I couldn’t simply release the pattern without a complete video tutorial on how to make the crochet drink cozy. In addition to the actual tutorial, I go in depth on how to adapt the size of the cozy to fit any size jar (which I have also included in the written notes of the pattern!).
I hope you enjoy this quick and useful crochet pattern!

Skill Level: Easy
Sizing: This pattern is designed to fit a regular pint size mason jar. The size of this cozy can easily be adjusted to fit any jar size.
Use the pattern as a guide for the construction of the cozy, but use your jar to guide the size of your cozy. To fit the jar work the base until it is slightly smaller than the base of your jar. Then work the sides of the cozy until you have reached your desired length.
