Even though Spring is around the corner, that doesn’t mean we are giving up our hot drinks in the morning, am I right? I still love my hot spiced ciders, and hot cocoas. And I’m sure you all still love your coffee!
So for St Patrick’s Day, we have a very simple Pot of Gold crochet cup cozy pattern for you! It’s simple and can be completed in just an hour or two, depending on how fast you crochet!
And yet, it makes your cup really stand out and helps protect your hand from the hot contents!
Plus it is reusable and makes a great gift this Saint Patrick’s Day! So spread the lucky and offer a pot of gold for all your friends!
This pattern fits a Starbucks Grande Cup. You see, I have an obsession with Starbucks Peppermint creamy hot cocoa with chocolate whipped cream and chocolate sauce. Doesn’t that just sound amazing?
Yeah, I get them often. It doesn’t help that I have a Starbucks only 3.8 miles from my front door! That is a bit dangerous, am I right?
Now I have a cute crochet cup cozy to make my cup represent how my hot cocoa is my lucky pot of gold to keep me working on a busy day.
