I love can cozies for parties. They are like attached coasters, and if they all look a little different they work to identify which drink is whose! Plus they keep your beverage cool without freezing your hand. This simple cozy pattern works on a can or bottle, and can be made as short or tall as you desire. It’s made with hdc stitches and can be made in stripes or solids. Enjoy!
Striped Can Cozy
Free Crochet Pattern
Easy Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot
Fits around a traditional beverage can and most bottles, and is easily made to another size.
Lion Brand Kitchen Cotton: 100% cotton, 2 oz/57 g/99 yd/90 m per skein
Suggested Colors: 106 Blueberry, 113 Hot Pepper, 98 Vanilla
US 9/I/5.50 mm
14 sts x 11 rows in hdc
Stitches and Skills used:
ch ~ chain
sl st ~ slip stitch
hdc ~ half double crochet

The diameter of this pattern can be easily adjusted by changing the base. Make a flat circle until the diameter is correct, then continue working in rounds without any increases. Find a tutorial on flat circles in sc, hdc, and dc in the Stitchopedia, here.
This pattern is written using the hdc flat circle pattern (with a slight adjustment) for 3 rounds, and then is continued without increases to the desired height. Change color after each round, or as you wish for stripes.
Round 1: Ch 4, sl st into first ch made to form a loop, ch 1 (does not count as first hdc) 10 hdc into loop. (10 hdc)
Round 2: Ch 1 (does not count as first hdc), 2 hdc in each st around, sl st to top of first hdc to join. (20 hdc)
Round 3: Ch 1 (does not count as first hdc), 2 hdc in first st, hdc in next st, [2 hdc in next st, hdc in next st] 9 times, sl st to top of first hdc to join. (30 hdc)
Round 4: Ch 1 (does not count as first hdc), hdc in first st and in each st around, sl st to top of first hdc to join. (30 hdc)
Repeat Round 4: as many times as needed to desired height. Samples seen in this pattern are made with 8 repeats, making a total of 12 rounds in the entire cozy.
