Are you planning a 4th of July celebration and want a cute hostess gift? Or maybe you just want to celebrate in style? Crochet this simple cozy that will fit most cans, plastic and glass bottles. This is a great pattern for beginners who want to practice crocheting in the round or for intermediate crocheters who want something simple and easy to work up.

Get creative and change up the colors to crochet a cozy that's perfect for any holiday or occasion. This makes a great Father's Day gift for the hard-to-buy-for dad too!

*Note: I carried my yarn from round to round as opposed to breaking yarn at the end of each round. Since the yarn carry-over is on the inside of the cozy it won’t show unless you turn the cozy inside-out.
