Materials needed:
Yarn of your choice
Hook size that corresponds to the yarn
Soda can for measurement
Optional: measure tape

For standard 12oz. can
4inx7.5in or 10cmx19cm

This pattern is using demonstrated using 8ply or sport weight and DK or worsted weight yarn
For the 8ply a G (4.00mm) hook and for worsted a I (5.50mm) hook has been used
The worsted weight will be in brackets – ( )

1.       Chain 21(16) or enough to cover can from top to bottom

2.       SC into 2nd chain from hook and across all 20(15) stitches.

3.       Ch 1, turn, Sc tbl (through back loop only) on all 20(15) stitches.  This will create a ribbed effect that will stretch. (Ch1 does not count as stitch.)

4.       Repeat row 3 till cozy is 7.5in (19cm) long or until cozy wraps around can/cup with about 0.5in (1cm) to spare, this will cause cozy to stretch to make it tight around can.

(You can whip stitch or sew ends together)

5.       Place RS (Right sides) together and slip stitch sides together evenly, by inserting hook into first stitch on front side to first stitch on back side, work even till stitching is complete.

6.       Weave in ends and enjoy!

:) great! made a few as party favors (in red), and wove a bit of white through the top and bottom edges (very Xmas). The string at the bottom can be tightened so that drinks don't slide out the bottom (my first two were a bit big).
