This project was a custom order for a friend who loved my Chevron Shoulder Bag. This soda can cozy led to all the fun Chevron Accessories in the Round I am sharing with you.
- cotton thread size 10 (I use Circulo Clea) about 150m (21 grams / 1.5oz) - in two or more colours
- 1.7mm hook (alternatively use a 1.65mm or 1.75mm)
- stitch markers
- tapestry yarn needle
Abbreviations: ~US Terminology~
(...) - work the stitches between the parentheses into the space as directed
[...] - work stitches between the brackets how ever many times called for
Or work the first 12 rnds (a.k.a. the base) of the instructions below. You should end up with similar measurements like these:
8” (20 cm) Circumference; 2.5” (6 cm) Diameter.
Note: This is just an approximate size. Your gauge will be the determining factor for your project size, and it’s perfectly all right if your cozy is a slightly bigger or smaller, so long as it snuggly fits the can in question!
- This cozy is worked in rnds. The base section is worked in continuous rnds, where you work in a spiral – round and round in the same direction. The chevron section is worked as joining rounds, where you sl st join, ch 1 and turn.
- Side facing you as you crochet the base section equals the WS. ODD rnds of the chevron section equal the RS.
- For the chevron section, change colours at the end the rnd by either A) ch 1, and f/o at the end of the rnd, make a slip knot with next colour and sc attach to the first st for new rnd, OR B) avoid weaving in tails by switching to the new colour as you finish the last st or turning ch of the rnd. I recommend B.
Soda Can Cozy Instructions:
Starting the Base Section – using whichever colour you would like the base to have – work in continuous rnds...
rnd 1: sc 6 into a magic circle (6 sts).
rnd 2: sc 2 in each st around (12 sts).
rnd 3: [sc, sc 2 in next st] x 6 (18 sts).
rnd 4: [sc 2, sc 2 in next st] x 6 (24 sts).
rnd 5: [sc 3, sc 2 in next st] x 6 (30 sts).
rnd 6: [sc 4, sc 2 in next st] x 6 (36 sts).
rnd 7: [sc 5, sc 2 in next st] x 6 (42 sts).
rnd 8: [sc 6, sc 2 in next st] x 6 (48 sts).
rnd 9: [sc 7, sc 2 in next st] x 6, sl st join to first st of rnd, ch 1, turn (54 sts).
rnd 10: [sc 8, sc 2 in next st] x 6 (60 sts).
rnd 11: [sc 9, sc 2 in next st] x 6 (66 sts).
rnd 12: [sc 10, sc 2 in next st] x 6, sl st join to first st of rnd, ch 1, turn (72 sts).
Starting the Chevron Section...
From here, you will sl st join to first st of rnd, ch 1 and turn at the end of each rnd. Change colours as frequently as you like – I recommend doing at least 2 rnds (or even rnds) in one colour before switching.
Simply switch colours as you work the ch 1, turn at the end of the rnd. Carry the dropped colour up as you complete each rnd, so that it is ready for the switch and so you don’t have to weave in as many ends in later.
rnd 13: work this rnd in BL only – [sc, hdc, dc 2, (tr, dtr, tr) in next st, dc 2, hdc, sc] rep around for a total of 8 times, sl st join to first st of rnd, switch colour, ch 1, turn (88 sts). *Stitch count from here on is the same as this rnd.
rnd 14: sk first st, [*sc 4, sc 3 in next st, sc 4,** sk 2 sts] rep around for a total of 7 times, rep from * to **, sk last st, sl st join to first st of rnd, switch colour here or keep going with current colour, ch 1, turn.
rnd 15-43: rep rnd 14, f/o at the end of the last rnd.
Weave in all ends.
