This cup cozy is worked up in two colors and is turned after certain rounds to create a different texture and design.
Here is a quick and easy gift idea for your last-minute holiday gifts. It’ll go well with the crochet dishcloth pattern I did using the same stitch, but in a slightly different color pattern.
Also, you can crochet this to any size you like. So if you want to use a different size yarn, it’s very easy to make adjustments for your yarn.
And since it’s such a small project, it makes for an excellent stashbuster. If you like this stitch pattern, you might also enjoy more patterns in this series: Swish-Swash Or, for something slightly different, check out the popcorn cup cozy or this mug cozy.
