Crochet Cozy for Pencil Cans and Anything Else!
Okay, so it’s more than just a pencil cozy. As you can see, I’m using mine for my crochet hooks; but you can use it for your pens and pencils or anything else that needs a cute container.
The cozy is adjustable in size making it easy for you to crochet a cool jar or bottle cozy, cup cozies, can cozies, or anything else you have in mind… Your imagination is the limit.
And since we are nearing the holiday season, I did mine up in Christmas colors, but choose any colors you like to match the season or your home.
