How this Coffee Cozy is Made

Lucky clover beer bottle cozy, free knitting pattern for St. Patrick's day designed by Liz @PurlsAndPixelsHere you will find two separate, but similar knitting patterns. One pattern is for a lucky clover beer and bottle cozy. The other knitting pattern shows you how to make a lucky clover coffee cozy. The coffee cozy is four rows wider, so it should fit most tall, handle-less coffee cups. The bottle cozy will fit most 16-20 ounce bottles of beer, water, soda, or even baby bottles.

These adorable cozies are made with two basic stitch patterns, that are knit in the round: the knit, purl rib, and the stockinette stitch. The four leaf clover pattern is knit into the cozy using a fair isle technique and carrying the two colors along together as you work.

This cozy is a quick project that is perfect for scrap yarn that has been left over from another project. You only need between .6 and .8 ounces or 19 -21 yards of yarn to make this minimalist coffee cozy. If you need help figuring out how much scrap yarn you have left, my post on yarn math might be useful.

I used Caron Simply Soft yarn to design the pattern, which is a basic, acrylic, worsted-weight yarn. Try any solid color you like, or mix it up with a variegated or patterned yarn. You can substitute almost any worsted weight yarn in almost any material, like sheep’s wool, alpaca, cotton or even a silk-blend for this project.
