Love My Beer Cozy Pattern

Updated: Apr 6, 2019



Do you love beer? Me too! Or soda, if alcohol isn't your thing? Do you hate holding cold, wet cans pulled right out of the eski/cooler/chilli bin? Not to worry, I've written up a pattern that will keep your fingers comfortable - the Love My Beer cozy! It also helps you identify which drink is yours when you put it down amongst other cans :)



I love to crack open a beer on a Friday afternoon, so what better way to express that love than with a crocheted can cozy adorned with hearts?


N.B: Writing my patterns can be quite time consuming and I do my best to make sure they are clear, coherent and easy to follow. Since I provide them for free, I would appreciate it if you could please follow me on Instagram @slipstitch_hollow or on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/slipstitchhollow.

Or, you can sign up to my mailing list! By following me through these platforms, you will receive all updates about new patterns, items for sale, art installations and my undying gratitude! :)


You will need:

  • A 4mm (G) crochet hook

  • Medium weight yarn in two colours of your choice

  • A beer for when you're done! (or a non-alcoholic beverage)


* Since we will be working with two colours, we will be referring to them as Colour A (CA) and Colour B (CB) *


In order you make this pattern you will need to know how to do tapestry crochet in back loops only.


There is a fantastic video tutorial on how to do both from ChabePatterns which you can see here:




The heart we are creating will look like this:


This image shows how many stitches are in each row for the heart.

The progression of the heart:



And the finished heart:
