Make A Crochet Pint Cozy Set
Handmade pint cozies are a great thing to have in the summer, to prevent your hands from getting cold and wet.
They are super eco-friendly and can be used again and again.
Crochet ice cream cozies are not only going to look chic, but you can gift them to friends and family too!
Give as gifts to friends and family
Make a set of four or more cozies to tie with ribbon and give as a summer gift.
They can be made in any colors you like, in brights or neutrals.
I would recommend making them in 100% cotton.
You can use up those one skein wonders too from your stash, as each cozy takes up just less than 50g of yarn.

The base of the cozy

To make the base larger complete a further two rounds (for a 3.5″ base)

- Round 8: 1 sc in each sc
The body of the ice cream cozy
- Next round in the base: sc all the sts into the back loop only.
- *Please note – keep the marker to denote which is the beginning/end of the round.
- Continue to work in a spiral – sc all of the sts in every round (in both loops) – until the piece measures = 4.5 inches (you can adjust the height of your cozy here).
- You can make the bag as short/tall as you want.
- Finish the last st with an ss and cut the yarn.
- Secure and weave in the ends.
- Weave in all other loose ends.
Spoon Holder/Thumb Loop
- Ch 8, turn,
- sc into every ch to the end.
- Rep row 1 – three more times.
- SS into the last st, cut yarn, and secure.
The loop should measure Height = 1 inch / Width = 2 inches.
This can then be stitched to the ice cream cozy about 1 or 2 inches from the top edge of the cozy (see photos for reference).
