If you need a VERY fast gift, look no further! The Quick Gift Crochet Coffee Cozy is one of those easy peasy, instant gratification projects, with just simple chains and half double crochet stitches. Have a bunch of single buttons on hand? This project is perfect not only for stashbusting yarn, but using up some of your buttons too!
You can make up a set of these for someone, or perhaps wrap it around a cup as shown and put some goodies inside…gift card, tea bags, chocolates, mints, the possibilities are endless!
This project is part of the 12 Weeks of Gifting Series! Each week from NOW to the end of December, I’ll be sharing a new pattern for something that is super easy and super quick to whip up. We’ll be using the same yarn and same hook size for every single project, just switching up the colors a bit. Many of these projects can be made in just one sitting too!
With the holiday season fast approaching, sometimes it’s hard to squeeze in the time needed to make handmade gifts for everyone on your list! No worries, our 12 Weeks of Gifting Series to the rescue! Click the link below for the full directory of projects:
