Free Pattern: Can Cozy

Plarn Can Cozy



  












After trying a few different patterns, I find this one seems to have the most flat bottom.
  The main pattern fits a standard 12 oz. can. Directions are given to extend pattern to fit a larger 16 oz. can for all you energy drink lovers. Both are made slightly larger than the can, with a decrease at the top for a better fit.

Skill Level:
Easy

Materials:
Plarn from about 10 bags, 2 colors, cut about 2 inches wide
Crochet hook, size needed to obtain gauge
Tapestry needle
Permanent markers (optional)

Gauge:
11 sts in 4 inches across, 1 row of sc plus one row of dc = 1 inch high.

Note:
Use permanent markers to color bags before cutting to obtain any color combination you wish, or simply use different colored bags. If you color your plarn, expect some of the marker to rub off while working. Use isopropyl or rubbing alcohol to clean this up.
