Sweet Stripes Drink Cozy

New FREE Crochet Pattern!

I am so excited to share my latest Sweet Stripes crochet pattern with you! This one was designed for you to make a quick gift for the men in your life, just in time for Father’s Day! I had a blast designing the Sweet Stripes Can and Bottle Cozy Pattern just for them, but you can and should make one for yourself too! This versatile pattern will cover all your can and bottles with ease! I truly hope y’all will find this pattern just as much fun to make and use as we have!

As an added bonus, this can and bottle cover is great for absorbing condensation all summer long, and helping to keep your drink cool at the same time. If your significant other is more of a wine drinker, then you might want to check out my Sweet Stripes Wine Cozy pattern, which is also a perfect summer pattern! Keep your Moscato chilled with your stemless wine glass cozy for 16 and 19 oz glasses! What if you need a gift for someone that prefers hot beverages? Well, we’ve got y’all covered there too with the Sweet Stripes Cup Cozy which has both a to go cup sleeve and mug hug version too! No matter which pattern you choose, you’re sure to get a great gift, that’s quick to make and useful too!

Beer Bottle Cozy Crochet Pattern

I love a quick crochet project, how about you? The Sweet Stripes Bottle and Can Cozy Pattern consist of simple repeats that you will have finished in no time! They are the ideal last minute project for working on while you relax and enjoy an audiobook or the latest movie on Amazon Prime! The pattern only uses simple, basic stitches so you will easily learn how to crochet a koozie for beginners! Easy peasy!

I designed this pattern with my hubby, and all the guys in mind! It’s almost Father’s Day, and I wanted something I could make and gift for him that wasn’t another cold weather accessory. I realized that one universal thing we all can use is a way to keep drinks cold in the summer heat! Because the Sweet Stripes Stitch™ is simple, but interesting it seemed like the perfect gift for him! Y’all know I can’t ever make anything simple though.. So I had to go ahead and design 3 versions of this pattern so that no matter what your Hubby, Dad, Grandpa, or other guy in your life loves to drink, you can make him the perfect drink holder! The pattern includes the 12 oz soda or beer bottle koozie, the 12 oz skinny can cozy perfect for White Claw or other fave seltzer style beverages, and we can’t forget the classic 12 oz beer or soda can! 

What I also love about this pattern is that it’s a bottle or can cozy with a bottom! I hate condensation because our patio table is glass, but love a nice cold drink outside in the summer. Well the lovely and absorbent bottom of this crocheted koozie eliminates that problem. Hopefully your favorite guy will agree! What makes this gift even better, is if you make a few and pair it with a 6 pack of his favorite beverage and a fun bottle opener keychain. I love this keychain that is a multi-tool and my hubby loves this keyring with his fave NFL team on it! No matter which style crocheted drink koozie you make, he is sure to love a gift handmade from the heart! 😉

Need some help with the stitches? I provide photo tutorials within the pattern to help you with the included techniques and more! I am always happy to help you with any questions you may have! Don’t crochet yet? I’d love to help you Learn to Crochet with my fun Crochet Tutorials!
